Senior Presentation Designer: A different kind of role at a different kind of agency
Hi. We’re VerdanaBold, a presentation design and storytelling agency that’s (currently) located in our own homes in Chicago. Our team is growing, and now we are looking for an exceptionally creative-minded person to help us tell the next chapter of our story.
We’re searching for a Senior Presentation Designer who’s ready to take a lead role in every aspect of presentation design, from shaping creative briefs to concepting to crafting exceptional work. If you thrived during pitches, or ever imagined yourself on the stage at TED, this will be a great opportunity to learn the skill of creating presentations. If you only want to work in InDesign and aren’t interested in the idea of presentations, this isn’t the job for you.
You’ll be designing presentations for C-Level executives, setting the creative vision for junior designers to follow, and helping the team to grow and improve. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to more traditional design projects (like social media), as well as help us develop learning and development materials like training courses.
This is a traditional role for non-traditional people. It’s a job for a big-picture thinker who wants to flex their creative muscles. It’s an opportunity for someone who wants to be a leader, not someone who wants to be told what to do. And it’s a chance to make your mark and grow alongside our team.
To succeed in this role, you should have at least 8+ years of professional design experience, as well as specific presentation design experience.
You will need to share examples of presentation design work in order to be considered for this role. This could include pitches, new biz or sales decks, C-Level presentations, or other types of presentations where you led the design and creation of slides.
We work primarily in PowerPoint, with some work done in Google Slides. You should have strong skills in these programs. You should also be strong-to-advanced in Adobe Creative Suite or other design software.
In the post-COVID world of remote work, communication and reliability are essential. We’ll eventually be returning to in-person work at least a few days a week, but not in the immediate future.

We are a Presentation Design & Storytelling agency. What does that mean, exactly? We help brands large and small to solve their communications challenges through storytelling and design. From conference keynotes to internal presentations and even agency-style pitch work, we craft PowerPoint presentations that help brands to stand out from the crowd.
And recently, we’ve launched some new services. That includes Presentation Training that’s designed to help individuals and teams to learn the skills to be great presenters, and Branded Communications services, which includes more traditional marketing and design projects. If you have agency experience, you’ll fit right into this workstream.
Finally, we believe in creating a supportive, safe, and inclusive work environment, one where people are free to be their best selves.
