  • Overview

    Abacus Technology is seeking a Graphic Designer to support graphic creation and layout for daily briefings and marketing materials.  This is a full-time position.

    Responsibilities

    Create visual concepts, not directly manipulating GEOINT products, using computer software or by hand, to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate consumers. Develop overall layout and production design for various applications such as advertisements, brochures, fact sheets and corporate reports. Graphic designers combine art and technology to communicate ideas through images and the layout of websites and printed pages. Work with both text and images. Select the type, font, size, color, and line length of headlines, headings, and text. Decide how images and text will go together on a print or webpage, including how much space each will have. When using text in layouts, collaborate closely with writers who choose the words and decide whether the words will be put into paragraphs, lists, or tables. Through the use of images, text, and color, transform statistical data into visual graphics and diagrams, which can make complex ideas more accessible.
