Designer

Are you a designer looking for a place to grow amongst other creative minds?

Deksia is looking for a talented graphic designer to work alongside our creative team in Urbandale, IA. We need a hard-working individual who can breathe life into concepts provided by the strategy team.

From brand concepts to website layouts to tradeshow booths, you will be part of a team creating award-winning caliber materials daily. Other projects may include social media ads, apparel, brochures, and other pieces of printed collateral.

As a designer, you must also be able to take direction from multiple sources and find creative solutions that look good, function as intended, and most importantly, make clients happy. Many times this direction will come from the leader of Deksia’s design department, the Art Director or Creative Director.

  • Ensure brand consistency for a variety of clients
  • Experience with building brands and strategies, logo design & website design
