We are on the hunt for a talented Designer to work alongside an art director and assist our in-house creative team.

Who’s the ideal candidate?

You’re the one who sees art in the everyday and knows how to harness it to tell great stories. You’re more than a little technically advanced, but you learned all those programs to serve your artistic ambitions (which, by the way, are brilliant). Experience? Sure, you’ve got plenty, and a whole bag of tricks to show for it. Of course, you play really well with others and are comfortable running with a project once the game plan is established. The stuff you’re interested in is beautiful, fun and sometimes unusual.
