Multimedia Graphic Designer
We are looking for a full-time multimedia designer to join our creative team. Candidate should possess a refined graphic design skillset and experience with various media to produce assets for both print and digital platforms. A fitting candidate should exemplify not only a willingness– but a deep excitement– to expand their arsenal of knowledge and skills by applying their core graphic design skills to new software or platforms such as Squarespace, Unbounce Landing Pages, Mailchimp and newer applications that emerge either through advances in technology or our clients’ varying needs.
While mastery of the Adobe Suite and a strong, diverse portfolio are essential to success with Malik Media, we value principled, curious designers with a honed aesthetic first and foremost– new software and platform-based skills can be learned on the job.
While this role reports directly to the Creative Director, contingent upon project size and timeline, larger projects may require collaboration and communication with multiple roles. For day-to-day collateral design or branding / web design projects that involve small business clients, this designer may be the lead executor and primary point of contact with the client from start to finish, providing a significant level of project ownership and creative input.
This is a remote position, though the designer may be asked to work in-person if based in Los Angeles or Columbus.

Analyzing written content and wireframing layouts prior to actual design for larger print pieces or web projects
Creation of icons and miscellaneous graphic assets for emails, websites, or social media
Developing logos, brand assets (e.g. business cards, etc.), and brand / style guides
Working within existing brand guidelines to create collateral that reinforces a brand’s style or voice through its multiple visual touchpoints
Designing presentation materials, slide decks, and interactive event materials
Designing ads and print mail campaigns for the purpose of brand awareness\
Designing landing pages using a drag-and-drop editor such as Unbounce Pages
Building marketing websites using Squarespace
Creating mockups of physical collateral using Smart Object templates
| Necessary traits for this role:
Strong command of visual communication design principles and an innate understanding of visual design as a strategy for businesses, not merely a skillset
Ability to work on several projects simultaneously in a deadline-driven environment, consistently delivering high-quality results on time
Curiosity to understand complex industry-specific topics and help our clients communicate them in visually compelling ways that transcend the power of words alone
Appreciation for and ability to pick up on the evolving trends of design and their manifestation by industry-leading B2B and B2C brands
Desire to thoroughly understand the client objective, target audience, and underlying business goal of each assignment
Understanding of how design impacts the broader marketing strategy and an ability to refine other people’s ideas and actively contribute new ideas to further this strategy
Problem-solving mentality and an ability to employ “DIY” resources such as web searches or tutorials to help address client needs or pick up new skills and techniques on the fly
Excellent written and verbal skills to communicate with clients in a professional and persuasive manner
Comfortable working with a small team in a remote capacity
