Graphic Designer (Part-Time)


Graphic Designer (Part-Time)

Want to be part of the creative team for an organization whose goal is to make our community a more compassionate and equitable place for everyone to live? Milwaukee Film does this by enriching, entertaining, educating, and engaging others through film. We have a vision to make our region a center for film culture because we believe films and filmgoing are powerful vehicles for social change and personal introspection. And we want your help reaching out to the greater community through excellent design!

We’d like to harness your expertise in and passion for graphic design of digital and print collateral (and for movies!). The pandemic has been hard on the arts and our organization was not immune. However, we have great hopes and big plans for the future and we want your skills to help guide us toward our goal of supporting the belief that our city, its surrounding communities, and the world can be made better by sharing cinematic experiences, instigating meaningful dialogues, and cultivating our local filmmaking economy. And you can play a role by creating visual communications which garner attention for important issues.

As Part-Time Graphic Designer, reporting to the Creative Director at our headquarters in the beautiful Brewery District, you’ll be responsible for supporting the creation, development, and execution of print and digital collateral while maintaining brand and identity standards. You’ll partner with folks across the organization to meet critical deadlines in support of our many festivals, events, and community promotions. As a creative role, it requires strong design skills as well as an understanding of layout, typography, and print production. And you have to be able to juggle multiple projects while maintaining your cool! Need it be said, working knowledge is required of all the tools graphic designers use every day: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, to name a few. This role can be performed largely remotely, although some in-person time will be expected in the future. Therefore, you must be able to prove full vaccination status against Covid-19, or be willing to become vaccinated within 6 weeks of accepting an offer and work remotely until full immunization is achieved (defined as two weeks after final inoculation).

As a perk of the job, you’ll receive a Milwaukee Film Membership, access to the festivals, and complimentary admission to screenings at the Oriental Theater (including free popcorn!). Best of all, you’ll become part of an organization dedicated to investing in its people for the betterment of our greater community. If you’re passionate about graphic design and team-oriented goal attainment, are newly-graduated in the field (or self taught, or looking to return to the workforce, or whatever) please submit your digital portfolio and resume to:
