Job Description

Job Title: Graphic Design Volunteer for the Marketing Resource Center

Department: Marketing and Communications 

Reports To: Executive Director, Lisa Prince Fishler

Director of Operations, Caitlin Quinn

Type: Unpaid, but basically a fountain of warm fuzzies, karma points, and rad vibes.

  • Designing super cool, feel-good stuff that inspires one (or more) of these reactions: awe, laughter, a warmed heart, happy tears, inspiration, action, and motivation, to name a few.

  • Aforementioned super cool things may include (but are not limited to, because the world is our oyster!): flyers, social graphics, infographics, multi-page PDF documents, illustrations, image overlays and embellishments, postcards, and website design components.

  • Efficient turnaround of finished pieces

  • Reliable communication with the Director of Operations or Executive Director, depending on the project.

  • Maintaining and celebrating the HeARTs Speak brand, mission, and reputation.

  • Humoring our infatuation with illustrated small animals, donuts, and cats that resemble celebrities.




  • Proficient in Canva is a must, as many templates are created there

  • Proficiency in the Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator a definite plus!

  • Proficient in Microsoft Office applications

  • Working knowledge of typography, image sizing and cropping, composition, and digital illustration. Video-editing experience is a major plus!

  • An appreciation and affinity for modern, playful design aesthetics

  • Experience and/or interest in design for the social space.

  • Ability to work from home or using your own equipment and software.

  • Ability to communicate clearly through the written word, using proper grammar and spelling.

  • Brimming with creativity and the drive to experiment, ideate, and imagine!
