Marketing Communications + Graphic Design Specialist


The Role

The Marketing Communications Specialist will produce top-quality marketing copy, press releases and graphics to support five upcoming public art projects. These projects are of the highest calibre and have a local, national and international reach. As there will be no traditional paid advertising, the successful candidate needs to be highly proficient in social-media outreach and marketing, and be able to create attention-grabbing copy and graphics. Excellent grammar and adherence to brand standards are essential.

Key Skill Set

  1. Copy Writing
    Able to take long, detailed project descriptions and distill short, attention-grabbing, relevant marketing copy for all social-media platforms, e-blasts, newsletters, website, and press releases.
  2. Social Media
    Detailed understanding of all social-media platforms and how to optimize project awareness and build audience engagement. Understand that engaged audiences like, comment, share photos and personal perspectives, ask questions, and participate.
  3. Graphic Design
    Working within existing brand guidelines and project imagery to design online marketing campaigns and website graphics that stand out from the clutter.
  4. Marketing 101
    Understand and deliver on integrated marketing plans, assess weekly performance using all available data, and quickly adopt changes as necessary.

Hours and Remuneration

  1. Flexibility to work at the Biennale office and off-site.
  2. Work Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, 80 hours per month.
  3. Attendance at in-person and virtual Biennale events, including evenings and weekends.
  4. $2,000 per month.

You will be reporting to the Vice President and will support the team of project managers. The pace will be fast, and the standards will be high. The projects are amazing. So if you love cool public art (digital and sculptural), you’ll love the job.
