Advantage Media Group|ForbesBooks has an exciting opportunity for a Graphic Designer/Web Designer with experience in corporate marketing design. Advantage|ForbesBooks works with top tier business professionals to position, promote, and market them as the thought leader and expert in their industry, community, or marketplace.

The mission of the Graphic Designer/Web Designer is to work with Advantage|ForbesBooks’ Corporate Marketing team to develop and design marketing deliverables in an effort to expand the company’s reach and improve its standing in the public space.

First impressions are everything when trying to attract new members, especially when a business professional is looking to invest in his/her business. You must continually strive to improve the creative design process and thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative and creative environment.
