Graphic Design Team

Location: Des Plaines, IL

We need a serious production artist in our art department.

Why we need your help.

We're growing. Business is good and we're going to great. With the right people, we're convinced the next few years will be even better. To meet the challenge, we're looking for exceptional team members to help us continue to elevate our service and product quality.

Our production artists are at ground zero for product quality. The difference between a happy customer and an angry one is often a single typo or a late order. Any mistake can drive up costs and hurt our reputation. We are constantly in search of people who will help us with speed and accuracy.

When our customers say, "Wow, these signs look perfect and I can't believe how fast they got here!" you're an incredibly important part of making that happen.

What's this job like?

You're on the Navy SEAL Team 6 of graphic production. While we love creative expression as much as the next tender soul, this is not that. Our customers already know what they want to see and you're the stone cold pro who makes it happen fast. You're at the core of a team that makes thousands of different signs from dozens of real estate company brands a reality. Each one has to be perfect.

Your daily job will be to create, design, layout, color separate, and prepare artwork for digital and screen printers. Occasionally you'll need to clarify something with a customer, so you'll also need to be able to be personable and service-oriented on the phone. And yes, there will be paperwork, but it's important for making sure our production team in the factory gets the order out the door in fast, flawless fashion. You'll take that paperwork seriously.

On the best of days, you'll get in the zone and be surprised when it's time to go home. On the worst of days, you'll have the professionalism to bear the fire with a good attitude. You make Oakley's promises to our customers come true.

The position pays between $25,000 - $32,000 per year, depending on experience. We also offer insurance benefits, incentive compensation, and a 401k.

Skills and education you'll need.

Some basics:

  • You're fine using photocopiers and faxes (yes, even faxes sometimes).
  • Very important: When you don't know how to do something, your instinct should be to Google it and see what you can learn for yourself.

  • to change colors from RGB to CMYK or Spot colors within Adobe Illustrator.

  • to proof material your laying out for producton. For instance, you should have noticed two typos in this requirement. What are they?
  • to raise a red flag when something doesn't make sense, and confirm anything that seems out of place.
Stuff that could give you an edge:
