Graphic Designer

PrairieFire Communications

We're strategists who are smart, sophisticated and even witty. We've partnered with clients across the country helping them strategize what and how they want to communicate. We're also designers, wordsmiths, planners, traffickers and online gurus. And we make one hell of a team.

We promise to always look at the bigger picture, yet we never lose sight of the small stuff. Call us anal-retentive if you want. Won't be the first time.

We're not in business to make friends, but that seems to be a natural occurrence for us. Why? Because we work smart, we work hard and we bring keen insight into everything we do. We know clients come to us for our expertise, but we can't do our job effectively without also relying on them for access to their inner workings as we create plans and strategies. So, invite us in. We're good houseguests.

Now that you've seen what we can do, you're intrigued, aren't you? Call us. Let's chat over coffee. We want to hear about your marketing challenges and goals. No expectations. Just a nice conversation about how we may be able to work together. Heck, we'll even bring the donuts. And samples of our work, of course. Visit PrairieFire Communications.

Position Details

Graphic Designer
Northern Illinois
Mount Prospect, IL

Creative-driven advertising agency looking for a talented, energetic, ambitious graphic designer who wants to be part of the team.

Are you looking for that new creative fix? Do you need help with your chronic collaboration with a touch of idea generation? Do rivers and valleys in justified type give you the hives? Do you believe, if you concentrate hard enough, you can “Command-Z” that drink you just spilled? If you do, we are the place for you. We’re looking for talented, energetic and creative entry level graphic designers who have the skills. The skills to pay the bills. Think you do? Here’s what we’re looking for:


  • 3+ years of professional graphic design experience 
  • BFA or BS in Graphic Design, Visual Communications or related degree 
  • Proficient with the Adobe CC suite and relevant software (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) 
  • Strong color and typographic skills 
  • A keen eye for composition 
  • Production skills a must 
  • High level of organizational skills, with excellent communication/interpersonal skills 
  • Easygoing enough not to be offended by critical feedback 
  • A good sense of humor – super hilarious is a plus

BTW, we're a mid-sized, full-service advertising agency in the western suburbs offering a competitive salary, 401k with matching, health, dental and vision insurance, vacation and personal time and we are right across the street from the Metra station.

This is an on-site job unless you're planning to drive every day from Viti Levu (an island in the Pacific, FYI) or wherever you keep your stuff, you're going to have to live within daily commuting range.
