Graphic Designers

Are you an experienced graphic designer looking for a rewarding volunteer role? Are you interested in creating dynamic, contemporary visuals for our readers to call them to action? We’re looking for a couple of graphic designers who understand our periodic need for speed and fast turnarounds (although not all assignments are time sensitive), have a flair for contemporary design, can create and distribute eblasts through Mailchimp, and can work with WordPress (the power behind our website). Writing our eblasts and other communication pieces is not a requirement right now – content/copy will be sent to you for design – but if you ever want to give writing a try, we’re all about bringing out your best! The primary purpose of this role is to create visuals for key communication pieces for general e-distribution and our website as an integral member of the Communications team. If you have the talent and the time, we would love to hear from you! 

Estimated time commitment: 10-20 hours/month
