Junior Graphic Designer

Position: Full-time

Did you color outside of the lines as a little kid? Look up at the clouds and see something way different than just over-sized cotton candy? Do you find design inspiration in, well, just about everything?  If you get that design is a lot more than just picking pretty colors and typography, let’s talk.

If you love to collaborate in a team environment, are a fluid and diverse problem solver, and a clear and passionate communicator, then this position is perfect for you.

Want to put your creativity to work in an award-winning graphic design studio atmosphere? Find out for yourself why our employees stick around for a long time. We’re pretty sure it’s more than because of our Beverage Fridays and Summer Fun Day. Just like our clients, you won’t want to leave us!
