Job Summary

 

Love PowerPoint and graphic design?  Want a flexible working environment with travel possibilities?  If you are a self-directed person who loves to design PowerPoint presentations we’re looking for you!  Brella Productions, a new-media production company located in Evanston, IL, is seeking a full time PowerPoint Designer/Event Tech.

 

You must have good design skills, excellent people skills, a strong knowledge of PowerPoint, experience working corporate meetings or events and some knowledge of Photoshop and/or Illustrator. We are looking for someone who can work independently and consult with end clients in a professional manner to ensure the presentation is the best it can be.  The ideal candidate should enjoy both the creative design side of PowerPoint as well as working with presenters.  We are a very team oriented workplace, so the ability to enjoy your work while playing well with others is extremely important.

 

Job Description

 

  • Ability to work with fellow designers and clients to translate script content and Photoshop templates into PowerPoint presentations.
  • Be able to work on repetitive PowerPoint decks one week and complex unique presentations the next.
  • Ability to handle the pressure of last minute changes and not only survive, but enjoy the challenge and smile while doing so.

  • Work within existing project management, branding and Quality Assurance structures to ensure clean production workflow (and to be kind to your fellow designers, testers and project managers while doing so).
  • Ability (and desire) to continue acquiring new production skills
