Brave New Day

Brave New Day is on the hunt for a creative, thoughtful, and experienced graphic designer to join us as the master cylinder of our design machine. This is where much of the rubber hits the road, where mixed metaphors live and breathe and cross-pollinate to become a new, living, highly creative beast. Our ideal candidate strives to bring about something fresh, new, and interesting, every time—with minimal supervision.

The Stuff You’ll Do:

_ Produce multiple options for compelling results on time and within budget, including brands, websites, printed things, and other tasty goods that run the full gamut of applied design in the marketplace—brand strategy, naming, identities, packaging, digital experiences, print, signage, retail, and everything in between.
_ Sometimes drive the primary creative output to meet the needs of the client and project
_ Collaborate fluidly on ideation, exploration, concept development, and final execution in both print and digital deliverables
_ Hold a strong overview of the project and take responsibility for key elements
_ At times, do some brand research and strategy assessment, as well as subordinate tasks such as occasional stock photo searches, production design, and all that fun stuff
_ At times, possibly select vendors for production, as needed.
_ Assisting efforts to continually refine BND’s methods and practices

What You’ll Need to Bring:

_ 3+ years of professional graphic design experience, with a solid portfolio in both print and digital visual communications to back it up
_ Experience in brand identity design
_ Super high-level typography chops (essential)
_ A laser-focused attention to detail, strong articulation
_ An intense, undeniable internal drive to always do the best work you are able, and an insatiable curiosity

Skills In Your Toolbox:

_ Expert knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop
_ A working knowledge of Adobe XD (or Sketch)
_ Strong organizational skills
_ Excellent communication skills—the ability to present ideas well and weave excellence out of thin air
_ Self motivation, with a laser-focused attention to detail
_ A calmness and coolness in the face of ever-changing timelines and deliverable details within strict global deadlines and scope/budget
_ Did we mention a laser-focused attention to detail?

And We’ll Give You:

_ A nice little salary (yes!)
_ Generous time off for being sick (ugh.), vacations (yay!), and having children (the best!)
_ A whole slew of holidays off
_ Health, dental, and vision insurance
_ Company-matched retirement investment package
