Designer (Full-Time)

We rely on our Designers to develop unique solutions to client challenges. Sometimes that’s doing the job as briefed—from logos to brand systems, to ad campaigns. Sometimes it’s reimagining what the assignment is to achieve the desired outcome our clients are after. Presentation skills are valued and digital experience is a plus.

We are currently working remotely but hybrid work is within our foreseeable future, so we are seeking candidates who are within a reasonable commute.

We’re looking for a well-rounded, conceptual, curious self-starter who enjoys figuring out new skills and applying their experience to a variety of client needs across a variety of mediums—ranging from environmental to print to digital.

Core Job Responsibilities

You will design across a variety of projects ranging from brand systems and campaigns to video projects, social content suites, logo systems, digital experiences, print production, and presentation tools. The jobs change day-to-day, but on just about all of them you’ll be counted on to think strategically and conceptually.

We are a boutique shop, so in addition to the jobs themselves you will be preparing files for production, building presentation decks, and working up necessary documentation and style guides for handoff to your colleagues, agency partners, and clients.

At Defy, creatives present their own work, so you’ll be called upon to present directly with the support of the larger team—whether it’s to a client’s internal creative team or to an executive board.
