We also need help designing charts, graphics, graphs and layouts for agency tools and blog posts. This could include PowerPoints, PDFs, ebooks, articles, and anything in between. We may also ask for your help in redesigning our public-facing site (mojaba.com) or designing Mojaba features for usability.
Preference will be given to those who have an interest in mobile design and web design, have experience designing for brands, and have a basic understanding of designing for usability.
