GREAT FALLS, Montana – The City of Great Falls is seeking a graphic designer to assist with its Growth Policy Update. This is a tremendous opportunity for both new and seasoned designers (and students) looking to develop and expand their portfolio and experience base. Those interested in working on the policy will have the opportunity to assist in logo and tagline development as well as gain valuable experience in map creation, the development of educational materials, display boards and the layout of the final document.

The City’s Growth Policy is an official document, formally adopted by the Commission that helps plan for our community’s future. It recommends a set of goals, actions and strategies intended to manage development and promote the best possible environmental and economic future for the citizens of Great Falls. It looks beyond pressing current issues and looks to potential problems and future opportunities. The policy serves as a tool to guide decisions about the physical, social, and economic development for our community.

This is an opportunity for a graphic designer to help shape Great Falls’ future. The City is seeking creative individuals to be a part of this exciting process. No monetary compensation will be provided. If interested in providing your creative expertise, input and assistance while gaining professional, hands-on experience during the Growth Policy Update you are asked to submit the following items:
