Graphic Designer (Temp to Perm)

Job Locations US-Chicago

LivCor, a Blackstone portfolio company, is a real estate asset management business specializing in multi-family housing. Formed in 2013 and headquartered in Chicago, LivCor is currently responsible for a portfolio of over 300 Class A and B properties comprising more than 100,000 units in markets across the United States.

 

Our business is focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s excellence in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them.

 

Whew! Still with us? Cool. Let’s talk about where you’d fit in:

 

Are you sick of boring corporate design job descriptions? Is it soul destroying for you thinking, “I’m a creative person and I cannot think of anything worse than being trapped in a big machine – but I also want to do big, important, challenging work?” Well, have we got the job for you.

 

First, let’s get the context out of the way. Our business focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s excellence in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them.

 

Design and visual story telling is very important to us, and that’s where this role fits in. You would be a key member of our Marketing team, working on branding and design materials for our properties (aka, our communities) across the country. Let’s call that the bread and butter, but the work is no light snack. Each of these places have their own visual identities, so if you’re looking for a job where you get to constantly create, iterate, and execute new brands – this is it. 

 

We also need so much more though. We need someone with a sharp eye and killer technical skills to produce a range of collateral in our existing LivCor branding. Some of this will be as expected, and some of it will be things like “Can we put an eyepatch on that dog?” This is LivCor. We don’t really do standard.

 

If you think this is somewhere you’d fit in, we’d love to have a conversation. Blow us away. Show us your best work. Do what good design should do – tell a story and make us feel something.

Read on for the standard stuff our colleagues recommend we put in a JD. We hope to hear from you!
