PART TIME PRODUCTION ARTIST WANTED:

L Studio, a Sausalito-based design + communications agency is looking for a freelance digital production artist to join our team in a permanent, part-time position. 1-2 days a week onsite, at the start, with the possibility of increased hours (depending on studio workflow).

Candidates should have 2+ years of experience, excellent production skills, and knowledge of digital and print production. Must be able to work in a Mac environment using CS5 — must be an expert in InDesign, and skilled at using Photoshop and Illustrator. Competency with the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) is ideal. Design, typography and  photo-retouching skills are a must. Web 2.0 experience requirements include competency in WordPress, basic html, CSS, including the ability to design and implement blogs and simple “brochure-ware” websites. Sufficient web experience to consult and design (but not necessarily implement) more complex websites.

Must possess the ability to work collaboratively as well as independently. You will be working with the creative team to perform design edits, and produce print and web ready files. This includes design development (taking approved designs and playing them out fully) as well as preflighting files to ensure they follow all the correct specifications. Must be able to manage your time in order to hit deadlines. Clear, concise written and verbal communication skills are a must, as you will be coordinating with both vendors and clients.

The right person for this position is organized, accurate, thoughtful, detail-orientated and fast. Must have the ability to handle multiple projects at the same time. Resourcefulness is a must – if you don’t have the answer, you should be unafraid of a little research! Interest in sustainability in the built environment a plus.
