YouCopia is looking for a graphic designer in a freelance role. We need an advanced retoucher to assist our in-house design team with editing a vast library of original images (product focused + lifestyle). The first project is a batch of selects from our most recent photoshoot. We have a lot more image-editing available for the right candidate. We’re flexible on the time commitment but prefer this person to be available for (infrequent) in-person meetings in Chicago.

Contract-to-hire possibilities exist for the right fit!

Desired Skills and Experience

  • 7-10 years of photoshop experience preferred (masking, color correction, lighting, lens correction)
  • Experience working with consumer product & prop-focused campaigns (beauty editing & skin retouching experience also valuable)
  • Detail-orientated & organized (labeled layers, correct file naming conventions and clean masking)
  • Excellent communication skills for project status, understanding and collaboration
  • Video editing, motion graphics and photography skills are a plus for potential future projects
  • Available during business hours is preferred but can be flexible depending on each specific project timeline

How To Apply

Please submit your portfolio alongside relevant examples of product focused (before/after) images you have retouched. Clean, colorful images are most aligned with the YouCopia brand; you can view our visual aesthetic on YouCopia.com. If you have a set freelance hourly rate, standard contract or a quote per project preference, please specify in your application.
