Job Description

The Author Incubator was founded in Washington DC in 2010 as a home for life coaches and other healing professionals committed to writing books that make a difference. In the last two years we have published almost 300 bestselling books in a row, but most importantly our authors have collectively influenced over 750,000 readers around the world.

We’re seeking a driven Graphic Designer to join our growing team. The Graphic Designer position is responsible for the creation and maintenance our marketing assets created to support marketing, sales and product goals. From concept through execution, this candidate will improve our user experience by bringing our brand to life and keeping it consistent across all our various touchpoints.

You will not be “clocking in and out” when you work for The Author Incubator. We believe in taking personal responsibility for managing your own time, workload and results. Most of our positions are remote, meaning that you get to work from whatever location suits you.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with marketing teammates to support our collateral, website design and more (blog, social media assets, etc.)
  • Help bring new ideas for design and content creation to the team using your expertise and eye for great design.
  • Scope and create templates for our marketing team to be more efficient in some of their posting on social media, the blog, email, and other channels.
  • Manage other design needs such as presentations, signage, and trade show collateral as needed.
  • Ensure consistency and integrity behind our company’s brand and brand guidelines.

Requirements:

  • BA/BS or equivalent working experience.
  • Past work either as an in-house designer or at a marketing agency. We require work samples to apply for this position.
  • This position must create assets for our web team that are mobile-, tablet-, and desktop-friendly and provide a user experience that fits on all three screens.
  • Expert in Adobe Creative Suite or similar technologies.
  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript a major plus.
  • Great communicator, both in conveying design best practices and project details/ideas.
  • Ability to self-manage workload and ensure all deadlines are met. 
  • Must be able to work in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment where projects frequently have tight deadlines and are needed on a moment’s notice.
