The Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) is seeking a graphic artist with strong social media and layout skills to improve the visual presentation and communication power of our reports, social media channels, websites, brochures, fund-raising materials and branding. The successful candidate should be skilled and experienced in creating layouts for long reports – both in PDF form and online — with creativity, clarity, visual brilliance, compelling photos, and accurate presentations of data and maps. The candidate should also be adept at conceiving and creating infographics, short videos, digital illustrations, and frequent written content for social media to inform readers and attract more social media followers. The Graphics Designer and Social Media Coordinator will have the responsibility of conceiving, sharpening, upgrading, and unifying EIP’s visual presentations – including our logos and reports, web pages, fact sheets, fund-raising materials, E-newsletters and blogs. And the coordinator will be tasked with writing and creating content every week for EIP’s social media channels and expanding the reach of those channels.
Qualifications: Candidates should have extensive knowledge of and skills in software to produce illustrations in both digital and PDF form, as well as short videos. These could include (but not limited to) Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Flourish, Webflow, and Photoshop. At least three to five years of relevant work experience and a college degree are preferred. Applicants should also have a passion for the environment and should be able to manage multiple tasks at once and work well with others.
Compensation: Salary will be competitive for a full-time graphics designer and social media coordinator in the Washington DC metro area, but also based in part on experience.
Location: The employee will work mostly remotely, like most EIP employees. EIP is based in Washington, D.C., and some employees choose to work a few days a week at our offices at 1000 Vermont Avenue NW in Washington DC. But this is not a requirement.
Equal Opportunity: EIP is an equal opportunity employer, highly values diversity, and strives to create an inclusive workplace culture. As an equal opportunity employer, EIP is committed to employment practices that ensure that employees and applicants for employment are provided with equal opportunities without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, religion, physical or mental disability, medical condition, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information or any other factor that is not related to the position.
To Apply: Candidates should send a cover letter, resume, five samples of their graphics illustration or report layout work, and three examples of their social media illustrations. Email the materials to Tom Pelton, Director of Communications, Environmental Integrity Project, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with the subject line “Application for EIP Graphics Designer/ Social Media Coordinator.” The letter must include a description of the candidate’s experience with and knowledge of social media.
