Graphic designer - mid level

WhiteSpace is looking for a visual problem solver. Someone with an eye for form and color, and who may love fonts just a little too much (mmm, look at the curve on that lower-case ‘g’).

We use packaging, billboards, buses and faces of buildings. Heck, we’ll use flags, blimps and smoke signals if we think they’d be effective.

So if you want to get a foot in the door at a thriving, award-winning agency, this position may be for you. If you meet the qualifications, why not find out?
