Our team needs a full-time Graphic Design Production Assistant for our SE Portland office who can thrive in a fast paced, entrepreneurial environment. You should have excellent communication skills, be able to juggle several different jobs at the same time, and be able to make decisions on the fly.

We strive to maintain an open and creative work environment where everyone has the ability to voice opinions and affect company strategies. Our growth is a direct result of consistently setting trends (rather than following them) and growing a strong team of dedicated, passionate employees.
The Graphic Design Production Assistant will:
Convert products from Photoshop to InDesign and vice versa
Order sample products via ROES systems
Work closely with the Production Manager and Lead Graphic Designer
Assist with customer service to learn standard protocol and policies

At least 1 year of Photoshop and InDesign experience (in a full time, paid position)
Meticulous attention to detail
Resourcefulness to solve problems and meet deadlines while working with little direction
Ability to perform effectively in a fast-paced environment
Excellent written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills
This position is in Portland, OR and applicant must be local. Please submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of the job you are applying for before August 1, 2015. No calls, please.
We have seen time and time again.Clients are more likely to order and upgrade their photo albums when they see a pre-designed layout. After a year or more planning every little detail of their wedding; the last thing clients want to do is make more decisions.

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too!

From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.
This past year has found our small team working hard and making huge updates to our Frame Shop and we’re so excited (to provide our photographers) next round of improvements coming to the Frame Shop early August 2018:
