Graphic Designer


This job is very straight forward and very important.  It is mainly through your work that students and community members become aware of events at CCAT.


Position-Specific Duties

  • Making Flyers:  It is important to make these flyers both attractive and clear.  If the images are good, but the information is hard to read or innacurate, then the flyer is not adequate.  CCAT has a large file of old flyers that can be used as a template with only slight modifications.  For each event, print ~45 copies.  Flyers must inlude:
    • a) Name of Event
    • b) Date and Time of Event
    • c) Place of Event
    • d) Contact Information (CCAT's phone # 826-3551)
    • e) Associated Students logo

 *Optional information:

  • a) CCAT logo
  • b) name of sponsoring and collaborating organization(s) (CCAT)
  • c) name of presenter

Important: All flyers must be printed on re-used (one-sided) paper.  This paper can be found in abundance in computer labs, or at the library copy center (used color paper).  To save CCAT printing costs, we ask that you print all flyers in the university computer labs.  If unsure how to do this, ask a co-director for assistance.

  •  Posting Flyers - For each event, post 30 flyers around campus and 15 in the windows of Arcata businesses (the ones with bulletin boards). Some examples: Arcata Community Recycling Center, Solutions, Redwood Peace and Justice Center, North Coast Environmental Center, Sacred Grounds, Muddy Waters, Redwood Yogurt, Café Moka, Tin Can Mailman, Moonrise Herbs, Outdoor Store, Don's Donuts, Wildberries, and the Co-op.  On-campus flyers must be stamped at the Info Desk (in the University Center building) before posting.
  •  Special Events - When CCAT hosts special events, we try to put up a banner above the HSU Quad.  To do this, a space must be reserved at the info desk a number of weeks in advance.
  •  Communicate with Co-directors and other employees - In order for our program to proceed efficiently, it is important that everyone involved communicates with everyone else. Please keep the co-directors and others informed of what you are doing, any help you need, or ideas you have to enhance CCAT's publicity efforts. There is a notebook to record the hours you work and what you did, along with your timesheet.  Since you will often work off site, you can keep a personal log of hours worked and what specific tasks you did, to be turned in with your time sheet
