Graphic Designer Jersey City, United States
Graphic Designer is needed in Jersey City, United States.
TGC Worldwide, an incubator/accelerator specializing in taking the personal brands of business leaders and industry icons to the next level, has an immediate need for a graphic designer to join our creative team.
Above all else, you need to be an effective and proactive communicator. Secondly, you should have a creative flair and a strong ability to translate written requirements and client requests into design. You also need to be a self-starter. If you can communicate well and produce 3-5 well-reasoned visual concepts for a single idea in a fast paced design environment, I would like to meet you. If you have a strong point of view and have been called “combative,” “pretentious,” or “unemployable,” I would definitely like to meet you.
