The Graphic Designer is the Marijuana Policy Project's sole design employee and thus is responsible for all aspects of design work -- from the design work itself to obtaining price quotes from printers and mail shops and shepherding projects through all stages of production.

Specifically, the Graphic Designer is responsible for designing, typesetting, and laying out a wide range of print materials, including newsletters, brochures, reports, and mailings; designing t-shirts and other promotional items; designing graphics for MPP's web site; finalizing publications for printer (ensuring proper colors, proper color mode, proper resolution, proper file formats, etc.); working with printers and mail shops to ensure jobs are printed and mailed correctly; and miscellaneous production tasks, such as obtaining price quotes from printers and ensuring that MPP's mailings comply with post office regulations.

Candidates should be experienced in using InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop (CS2) in a Macintosh environment and have several years of experience in print production. Candidates should also have a meticulous attention to detail, be highly organized, and be able to perform exceptionally in a fast-paced environment.

The Graphic Designer reports to the Chief of Staff, who in turn reports to MPP's Executive Director.

The salary of the Graphic Designer is $40,000 - $45,000. The position includes full health insurance and an optional retirement package.
