Hot Damn! it's a Full-time job

Fort West is looking for a Production Designer in Lake Oswego, OR, USA.


We’re a small back alley studio, located in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego – innovative, agile, and galvanized. Most importantly, we’re growing – and that’s where you come in.

We’re seeking freelance and fulltime Production Artists to play a vital role in taking projects across the finish line. You will be the final checkpoint in the creative design process, building mechanicals and assisting with releasing final files to appropriate media vendors.

This position requires working closely with our designers and project managers to ensure precision of graphic elements and preparation of files for print or digital publication. You’ll be blending both creativity and technical skills to format layouts and/or images.

If you catch the typos that everyone else misses and intimately understand the difference between CMYK vs. RBG, spot color vs. process and a vector vs. a raster – let’s talk.

Position Requirements:

-You have a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design or related field and a minimum of 5 years experience as a Production Artist within an agency context.
-You have expertise in Adobe Creative Suite (Ps, Ai, Id).
-You have extensive experience owning the delivery of campaign assets and managing both digital build out and the prepress process for print and OOH files.
-You are meticulous, goal oriented and deadline driven with an unwavering attention to detail.
-You have a team spirit with excellent communication and collaboration skills.
-You are flexible and responsive to feedback (internal or external), and approach changes with a positive attitude.
-You are be able to prioritize, organize, multi-task and handle pressure in a fast-paced team environment.
-You are highly experienced with scaling and cropping, retouching, re-sizing and adjusting a wide medium of layouts.
-You keep up-to-date with trends in graphic design techniques and software.
