    Job Description
    SEEKING JUNIOR WEB & GRAPHIC DESIGNER

    Part-time with the opportunity to grow.

    Advokate, LLC, a small yet established woman-owned business with a center in Downtown Glens Falls, is considering making its first hire, if the perfect candidate comes our way. 

    We’re a husband-and-wife team specializing in marketing and design for startups, small businesses and nonprofits. We’re deeply rooted in the community and offer our clients an encouraging environment where we hold space for them as they explore their biggest dreams, and then we help make those dreams real. 

    It’s a cozy, intimate, comfortable workplace on Exchange Street. We spend a lot of the day intensely focused, quietly tapping and clicking away at our desks, but also have deep, heartfelt client meetings with lots of laughter, and sometimes our kids are in the office. We like 90’s pop and Phish. 

    As a junior designer, you’ll have the opportunity to work together with Advokate founder Kate Austin-Avon to create first-rate designs. We’ll teach you stuff, but we’ll make our hires based on portfolio, potential, personality, and references. It’s our hope to find someone dedicated, a real teammate, and who is ready to grow with us. 

    Tasks:

    • Show up. (Seriously. That’s a big one.)
    • Offer input to creative meetings and share ideas
    • Produce and amend attractive and effective designs for all media —
    • Web, both creating and updating websites
    • Graphic design duties (Logos, business cards, posters, banners, etc.)

    Skills required:

    • WordPress & CSS
    • Fluency in Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, InDesign, PhotoShop)
    • Strong written and verbal communication skills – proofreading is big around here
    • Strong designer’s eye
    • Ability to meet deadlines in a high-pressure environment
    • Excellent organizational, multi-tasking and time management skills
    • Sharp eye for details. (It HAS to line up.)
    • Willingness to listen to feedback and use it to hone skills, grow and improve
    • Be a team player. We all gotta water the plants and run out for coffee and stuff.

    Sound up your alley?
