JPL’s Live Experience Design team creates large- and small-scale live experiences, experiential marketing, and digital presentations for a host of clients across the world.


We are looking for a freelance designer who has the ability to translate complex information into visually stunning and impactful presentations. In addition to designing top-notch presentations, you’ll have the opportunity to work on many aspects of event design including theming and space design. 

  • You are able to digest complex processes and reimagine them into simple visuals
  • You have some experience designing presentations but want to collaborate with an experienced team to learn all the tricks of designing stellar decks in PowerPoint
  • You understand the importance of an in-person experience at events or conferences and want to learn what goes in to making it all happen
  • You jive with strategists, designers, creative, tech, motion artists, account management, and clients to ensure creative vision is carried through
  • You’re a balanced left-brain / right-brain thinker with the ability to think in the clouds and quickly land ideas into the practical world
  • You’re an outgoing people person
  • You welcome other’s opinions and input and are constantly looking for ways to make your designs even better
  • You’re great as a cross-functional team player and understand the “all hands-on deck” mentality
  • A fast-past environment is your comfort zone, and you’re capable of moving rapidly between mediums, projects, and tasks
  • You thrive and stay cool as a cucumber under pressure
  • You’re never satisfied with the work but have the ability to move on and put effort toward improving the next piece based on what you just learned
  • You totally get the importance of beautiful typography and hierarchy of design
  • You wish every presentation you saw was as badass as your favorite TED Talk


The skills you bring:

  •  Experience with Adobe Creative Cloud programs (e.g. Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign)
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office and Acrobat
  • You understand the importance of great customer service
  • Designing in PPT doesn’t scare you
  • Positive can-do attitude and excited to venture into new realms of the design world
  • Great organization and communication skills

 Are you experienced?


  • 2+ years of experience working as a designer in any medium
  • Associate degree in a design-related field
  • Portfolio of work showcasing your designer chops, specifically, how you translate the complex into a cohesive story or theme


Applications must include a portfolio of work samples. Résumés received without work samples will not be considered.


What the work may look like:

  • Collaborate with account managers and strategists to understand the goals of a specific presentation or event
  • Participate in brainstorming the big idea for presentations or events and help plan how the team can bring it to life
  • Work with senior presentation designers to develop design themes and templates in PPT
  • Concept and design print pieces that tie into the overall theme to be used throughout the event space
  • Getting creative with Photoshop to mockup event signage within a space
  • Think through how attendees will flow through the event space and translate insights into all the interaction points: pre-event, during the event and post-event
  • Collaborate with senior designers and motion teams to create stunning content in PPT that make the presenter shine onstage
  • Tell compelling stories through the visuals you create in PPT
