Ithaca College is looking for an experienced designer who challenges themselves to think strategically, turning standard deliverables into powerful communication tools; someone who has confidence in their craft and jumps at the opportunity to problem-solve collaboratively; a conceptual thinker who has the experience and skill set to make those concepts a reality.
The successful candidate will bring their design, layout, and branding experience to the table to collaborate heavily with a multi-disciplinary group of creatives—each master of their specialty—as part of the Creative Strategy and Development team. They will work with other designers to create intelligent, compelling designs and concepts that effectively reach the college's key audiences — prospective students and their caregivers, alumni, staff, faculty and community members. On a larger scale, they will work to sustain and grow Ithaca College's brand, assuring a cohesive and evolving visual identity throughout all initiatives and projects.
Candidates should have a portfolio that demonstrates their strong design sense and experience. A portfolio that provides insight into the design process and thinking, with an emphasis on editorial design, conceptual design, craftsmanship with typography, brand-building is preferred. Experience with campaigns across platforms and channels is a definite plus.
