Job Posting: Graphic Designer RAship

November 04, 2015

Getting to Groundbreaking (G2G) is a research partnership project of SFU Urban Studies, the Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association (GVHBA), Urban Development Institute (UDI), municipalities, and the Metro Vancouver regional government. The goal of the project is to better understand the diversity and outcomes of the range of requirements, costs and qualities of the home building application process in different municipalities of the Lower Mainland.

G2G is currently seeking a Graphic Designer to do the following:

  1. Prepare the final report for Year 2 of this project, based upon an existing Adobe Illustrator template design, new data analysis, new charts and tables, new writing, and other new design elements, provided in discussion with the project team. Design should be clean, classic, authoritative, factual, and reflective of the design qualities of the Year 1 report (view the Year 1 report here). Must be amenable to easy on-line reading. Must be responsive to requests for revisions in the construction of the report. Expected length of full report: 50 p.
  2. Prepare a summary infographic page of the results of the Year 2 research.
  3. Assist the team in ensuring durability and integrity of design files for posting, circulation and other uses.
  4. Provide additional design and graphical advice to the project team, including face-to-face meetings.

The work will be primarily independent and time-flexible, but the designer must be willing and able to respond well to requests for revisions based upon new data and communication strategies arising.

Delivery date: December 31, 2015 (expected)

Rate: $50 per figure/table/infographic provided (in ai and pdf format), plus $20/hr for design work and meetings/team communication (negotiable based upon experience and time required)

Contact: Meg Holden, Urban Studies,
