Graphic Designer Jobs

Your Premier Destination for Graphic Design Opportunities & Recruiting

Career Group Companies recruits for Graphic Designers at all levels. A graphic designer handles several aspects of design including creating illustrations, building out graphics or imagery for ads, and assisting with brand conception. Graphic designers usually utilize the Adobe Creative Suite and other hand tools to design assets for digital marketing, print collateral, email marketing, websites, logos, and advertising campaigns to communicate ideas visually. For this reason, graphic designers are sometimes also referred to as graphic artists.

Candidates with relevant training and experience have a better chance of landing the job. Applicants with a degree in graphic design or a related field may be preferred by some employers, but other arts and design degrees are usually accepted.

Our recruiters at Career Group Companies can help assess the basic requirements to qualify for this job and connect you with the best employer to fit your needs and skill set. We also connect employers with ideal candidates based on what skills and experience they are looking for.
