Senior Brand Designer
Hello, fellow creative! Our team is expanding, and we're looking for a talented Senior Brand Designer with a proven ability to create brand identities, distinctive brand assets (illustrations, iconography, visualizations, motion design concepts, etc.), and design systems for high-growth tech companies.
In office is preferred; however, remote employment will be considered for candidates with exceptional fit.
You have a passion for defining and communicating what’s next in technology. You have a knack for creating visual assets to communicate value propositions and key benefits for highly complex tech products in the areas of AI, big data, FinTech, blockchain and enterprise ecommerce. To put things into perspective, many of the clients that we create brand identities for don't have an interface. You can back up your work with research and strong rationale, and work with our illustrators and motion designers to bring your brand assets to life on the web.
What you’ll do
- Create distinctive brand identities and assets including illustrations, design systems, and visual communications that can visualize very new technology
- Build branding and illustrations out across presentations, social media, and more
- Work efficiently to manage priorities and stay in front of deadlines
- Apply design thinking to the broader context of the brand and project scope
- Provide vision and direction on motion design and illustrations
- Assist with creating web designs (page layouts) that follow best practices and responsive design principles
- Participate in team concepting sessions, design reviews, and prepare for client deliveries
- Collaborate with the project team to explore concepts and iterate based on constructive feedback while thinking ahead to anticipate & solve challenges
Our creative team is fluent in:
- Adobe Creative Cloud
- G Suite / Google Workspace
- Webflow or similar
What you’ve got
There are many fantastic brand designers out there with beautiful portfolios for CPG, food and beverage, and hospitality. If you happen to be one of these talented creatives, but you lack tech products in your portfolio, you're likely not a fit for us. We strongly recommend that you view our Case Studies to get a sense of the clients we work with. Here's what we're after.
- 4+ years experience working at an agency, product company, or as a freelancer, plus a strong portfolio of work that demonstrates your skills with high tech products
- Versatility in illustration styles
- A passion for new technology and figuring out how things work (and visualizing it)
- Strong knowledge of colour theory, typography, and composition skills
- You get excited about how content and design play together
- A love of grid-based layout and an understanding of how to break it tastefully
- A love for working with teams; culture and attitude is a big part of our agency
- Confidence in communicating design decisions with solid rationale to team members and clients. We love a great presentation (we hope you do too!)
An asset, but not required:
- Illustration skills (2D & 3D)
- Experience with UI or product design
- An understanding of After Effects
- Experience with low-code platforms like Webflow
- Knowledge of HTML, CSS, and WebGL
Salary will be commensurate with skills and experience.
