GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The GRAPHIC ARTIST 1 develops production artwork such as sketches, charts, graphs, diagrams, posters, or photography which are used for displays, audiovisual presentations, teaching aids, or brochures.
This is the first level of a three-level series. It is distinguished from the higher levels by the level of skill required for basic production artwork such as paste-ups, overlays, copyfitting, lettering, and design work. There is an absence of responsibility for the broader and more technical graphic artwork (e.g., color separations, calligraphy, scientific illustrations, and sophisticated computer graphics). Employees in this class are provided direction in terms of product needs, colors, lettering, and timelines whereas the higher level graphic artists work with greater independence.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
