Graphic Designer, Joss & Main

Boston, United States
Full-Time

Joss & Main is adding a talented Graphic Designer to our brand design team. We’re looking for a meticulous Creative who is passionate about their craft. Someone who understands the nuance of great typography, but isn’t paralyzed by it. Fanatical about illustration and photography, but can communicate without it. Enthusiastic about the latest tech, software, and apps, but doesn’t use them as a crutch. An artist in your heart, a marketer in your mind, and a shopper in your evenings.


Portfolio:

Your work will be seen by millions and contribute heavily to the visual evolution of our brand, to be considered you must have an online portfolio. Your work should demonstrate a strong eye for design, a respect for brand standards—both following, and creating them. Your book should exhibit a love of experimentation and a command of available technology. You’ll be asked to work collaboratively and autonomously to improve our brand and your work in the process.

 

You:

You’ve worked autonomously and collaboratively to solve complex creative challenges involving email, landing experiences, and digital advertising (hopefully for mobile). Your involvement has had a large impact on the outcome of the projects you’ve been involved in. Your focus has been on customer-facing marketing design, though you’ve probably dabbled in UI too. You have some experience designing for print and your interest and skill as an illustrator or hand-letterer is apparent in your work. You are obsessive about details, and have a fresh aesthetic sensibility that effortlessly fits in with (and adds to) our unique brand.
