A Washington, DC-based strategic creative agency is looking to engage an experienced, interactive design-savvy Graphic Designer in an on-site, temporary position. The hiring organization has made it clear that they will definitely be looking to hire one or more full-time designers within the next few months, so it is possible that this temporary role could turn into a full-time position if such a transition is of interest to all involved parties after the temporary assignment has been underway for at least a few weeks. So, the hiring organization is open to considering qualified candidates who are interested in either of the following situations: (1) mid- to long-term, on-site temporary engagement; (2) short- to mid-term temporary engagement AND THEN a transition to full-time staff. We're posting this announcement in mid-June with the hope of identifying someone terrific who can start ASAP and work in the temporary role in an ongoing capacity for up to a few months. The assignment might last just a month or two, or could possibly continue for three or four months. At the moment, we're asking applicants to indicate definite availability for at least two months.

There's a good chance you might work on any/all of the following: website designs, landing pages, social media graphics, graphic e-mails, brochures, even collateral and/or presentations. The agency's clients also reflect a typical DC mix, including everything from international, consumer-facing corporations to B2B service provides with household names; to non-profits of all sizes and even some political campaigns.
