Designer

Who You Are

You can tread water in a pixel ocean, devour a vector layer cake, and solve problems on your feet. The internet has been your playground since XPages, but you also know not to export your print designs in RGB. You're willing to put in the occasional overtime for extra-awesome projects or malt beverages (and malt beverage clients). You're comfortable throwing your conceptual designs into the mix, and you’re not dependent on constant direction. You're a critical thinker who likes to design cool shit and have fun doing it, and you aren’t scared of playing in new mediums, whether digital, analog, or metaphysical.

What You’ll Do

As a Designer at Madwell you’ll be bringing big ideas into a visual and conceptual reality by working with our creative cross-functional team members. You’ll be reporting into our Design Director.

Specifically You’ll Be:

  • Brainstorming big ideas with the copy, design, account and production teams
  • Establish high standards in process, design, file naming/structure and presentation
  • Stay on top of all new techniques and trends in multichannel, multi-medium marketing efforts
  • Collaborate with the creative team, production and accounts to understand fully client needs
  • With the team, and sometimes on your own, you must be able to bring all these big ideas to life across medium, time and space

Our Must-Haves

  • Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Keynote
  • Mac-leaning but Windows-capable
  • Have a broad understanding of typography, period & current styles, design theory, and best web practices
  • Front end development, knowledge of CSS/HTML a big plus
  • Please have at least one socially acceptable addiction

Where You’ve Been

While we ask that you have at least 2 years of experience, we care more about aptitude than perfection, and we always appreciate an unusual career trajectory. We want to hear your story. So if you’re ready to hit the ground running (literally—we onboard people by offboarding them from a moving van), please write us. Now.

Interested? Please Send Us:

  • Your resume
  • A nontraditional cover letter letting us know why you want in on Madwell
  • A link to your portfolio
