Production Artist

Job Description

Sullivan Higdon & Sink is hiring a production artist (AKA, electronic artist). This person will be responsible for completing and perfecting the finished design product and helps to ensure a seamless delivery to our partners, such as vendors or clients. This person will work closely with designers/art directors and project managers to help ensure the quality of the work we create for ourselves and our clients. Rigorous attention to detail and a sense of responsibility are beautiful things that help maintain and foster great relationships with vendors and clients. We want that. Oh, and a pretty darn good handle on InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat would be mighty handy as well. Additional experience with PowerPoint, Keynote and Word would be nice, but not critical. Experience in advertising/printing electronic file preparation is strongly preferred and really what this position is all about. Additional experience with creating and preparing files for packaging production is a plus. This person will be part of the agency’s overall efforts to maintain the forward-thinking, sheep-hating culture at SHS and will be based in our Kansas City office.

Desired Skills & Experience

One to 5 years of experience in the following areas:

  • Advertising/printing electronic file preparation
  • Master of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat
  • Familiar with PowerPoint, Keynote and Word
  • Packaging production
  • Attention to detail
  • For better or worse, understand that some art directors just can’t be taught how to set up an organized file

If interested, please submit a resume and your desired annual salary range.
