Posted Jan 28, 2020

Are you a self-starter, comfortable and resilient in the dynamic ebbs and flows of a high performance environment?  Are you capable of delivering a high volume of creative ideas in short order? Do you enjoy pushing creative boundaries while working within a highly collaborative multidisciplinary team?  Can you rip off the top of your head the hex codes of your favorite colors?  Have you gotten into an argument at a party about who is more influential in the world of design, Stefan Sagmeister, Saul Bass or Peter Saville?

Reporting directly to the Creative Director, with support/guidance from the Chief Designer, you will be designing a wide variety of marketing, branding and communications assets across a range of projects, from the foundations & the fundamentals to the ambitious & the innovative.  

 

You will be a critical member of the core creative team, tasked with following and amplifying the company’s established design language and visual identity.  While you will have an opportunity to participate in design initiatives across the entirety of the customer experience, your primary focus will be supporting the Sales & Marketing team.
