Designer (Portland, OR)
We’re looking for a talented Designer to join us in our Portland Office.
You’re a skilled creative with both print and digital chops, obsessed with every detail of the craft. You might be the right human if you’re ready to transform high-level brand concepts into wow-worthy collateral, print ads, and digital assets—you can do it all, but you have a soft spot in your heart for the nuances of tangible, analog design. With your fundamental understanding of brand, you’ll collaborate closely with our team of in-house strategists, producers, writers, and many more to create world-class creative work product. Bonus points if you take the seed of an idea and sprint with it, contribute to the ideation process with a fresh perspective, and take on quick-turn tasks with an easy, mischievous grin.
Things You’ll Do Include:
Design strategic, compelling, world-class brand concepts, and apply across a variety of mediums and touchpoints
Build full collateral systems for a variety of brands and industries that work together to shape and support the Brand Foundation
Rollout brand concepts across multiple print materializations with seamless application of Gestalt Principles
Coordinate directly with print and other vendors to bring your designs to life, so strong communication skills are a necessity
Support existing clients in the evolution of their branded digital environments including image prep, design recommendations, and UI/UX problem solving
Drive projects forward by going beyond your role to support your team
Traits and Experience:
2+ years relevant experience in visual design for real-world projects
An educational background in design
An enviable portfolio backed by compelling stories
Strong understanding of typography, hierarchy, and grid structures
Strong grasp of print standards, technique, applications, and implications to the client’s budget
Strong knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.)
Ability to properly prep production-ready files for handoff
An agile self-starter, able to contribute to projects with varying levels of direction, and pivot gracefully as projects shift
We’re a brand and digital agency with a 25-year history of great work. Our clients are top-notch brands in wine and spirits, hospitality, architecture, engineering, finance, and more. We embrace a highly collaborative process that produces great results. Our work is deeply rooted in strategy and concept while maintaining a user-focused perspective. And we have a strong culture, great office, and enviable benefits.
