The Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library is the Library Journal/Gale Cengage 2016 Library of the Year for demonstrating creativity, innovation, leadership, and outstanding services to our community. We help transform lives by providing learning opportunities and activities that encourage and support their needs. Our mission promises that the library is: Your Place. Stories you want. Information you need. Connections you seek. We’re currently searching for a graphic designer who is self-motivated with a positive attitude and is driven to create in a variety of media: print, web, and social media.

This go-getter will be responsible for enthusiastically leading and developing projects from start to finish, using solid design and software knowledge skills. We believe in life-long learning and having fun while we work!

Every day, you will create, design and produce amazing graphic art, publication layouts and visual materials for a variety of library resources, services, and events. Your original design artwork, graphic images, and text will be seen in print and multimedia formats. You’ll collaborate on all the projects that the Communications and Event Resources department executes, and help develop and maintain graphics standards. You won’t be pigeon-holed doing the same thing over and over.
