    About This Role:

    Join a cross-disciplinary team designing a global brand. We’re looking for a designer who can translate Forrester’s leading-edge research into compelling visual stories. Reporting to the design director, the Graphic Designer will be dedicated to creating beautiful, compelling, and memorable materials, including information graphics, iconography, presentations, online interfaces, collateral, and motion graphics.

We each work on a variety of projects in different media, supported by solid design skills, career development resources, and camaraderie.

    • Bachelor’s degree in graphic design or equivalent work experience.
    • Three years in a graphic design or production design position within a creative team.
