  • You have your own style but don’t mind fleshing out someone else’s ideas when required;
  • Can give and take constructive feedback;
  • Has a strong sense of craft;
  • Has a passion for all things design, from print to web and everything in between;
  • Can easily work across core disciplines (traditional, digital, UX, UI) and loves to play and improve;
  • Has a strong understanding that modern marketing operates at the intersection of psychology, creativity and technology, and has the chops with tools of the trade to get shit done;

  • Uses industry knowledge and experience to move through the iterative design process as required;
  • Builds on a project’s strategic and artistic direction while contributing unique ideas and solutions to help accomplish client goals and produce remarkable work.  

Skills and Expertise

  • Visual design is in your blood;
  • 3-5 years experience in digital and print design;
  • Strong typographic and composition skills are a must;
  • Comfort collaborating with print vendors about the nitty gritty details of their process and photography partners about a vision
  • Can work collaboratively with other passionate marketing mavens;
  • Desire and skills to manage conflicting priorities (seriously);
  • Ability and willingness to do brand design work in the morning and provide creative concepts for a marketing-focused landing page that afternoon;
  • Comfort with a touch of design focused copywriting or editing here and there.

About the gig

An integral part of project teams, the designer is responsible for the creation of functional, beautiful and persuasive design positions that give meaning, a voice and visual identity to brands and products. This role is key to helping to solve meaningful problems through interface, web, app, print, and whatever comes next - design. This includes a strong understanding of design theory and the practical tools to get things done, as well as the ability to work across disciplines (research, strategy, digital design, + design related coding skills are a bonus). Consistent and effective communication skills, including the ability to make a strong case for design and the ability to help the team understand when what they’re asking for could be so much better -- pointing to a cooler, faster, persuasive and more cost effective route to awesome.

Perks

We work in the downtown core, with the best restaurants and shops only steps away; Healthy lunches, snacks and other goodies are free and plentiful, Modern displays, Mac hardware, stand-up desks and ergonomic space chairs are the office standard; We listen to bad [ass] music, but drink good tea, coffee, kombucha (on tap), whisky & wine; We have a culture coach and we take that action seriously.

Sounds dreamy. How do I apply?

Outline why you and your design chops matter and fire it off here. Persuasive is good. Almost everything else is bad. Include a link to a portfolio of your previous work. That said, we’re just as interested in how you think as we are in your finished product. Have any other unique creative skills that you bring to the table? We want to know about them, don’t be afraid to share what sets you apart. 

Please apply on or before February 14 2019.
