DOES THIS K E RN ING PISS YOU OFF?

As a designer at The Variable, you will not be a designer. Of course you will have to design stuff, but you will be responsible for much more than that.

We’re going to bring our clients amazing ideas. We need someone who thinks a little differently, sees the world in RGB and CMYK at the same time, and considers Pantone books “light reading.”

We are looking for a designer with technical chops and fantastic prowess for details on a variety of accounts from CPG to RTD and every acronym in between.

We want someone who will find their place within the current team. To do that, you need to have the ability to juggle a lot of fast-moving pieces. You need to be thick-skinned and self-starting. You need to be funny and engaging and hard-working and willing to pitch in on whatever opportunity pops up. We are small by design. So we hire carefully.

YOU MUST:

  • Take complete ownership of assigned work in developing advertising layouts, social media elements, POP, POS, and be able to prep all files to go out into the world practically or digitally.
  • You must understand and learn the established design language of brands and replicate that across multiple common executions.
  • Embody the values of The Variable while maintaining a positive attitude and dedication.
  • Have an interest outside of advertising that you are just as passionate about as advertising (we are firm believers in work/life balance…we need to know you love something else)

YOU HAVE:

  • Agency experience and a track record of creating something from nothing (traditional or otherwise).
  • Ideal candidates will have 3+ years of agency experience. But if your book makes us think, we don’t care what your resume says.
  • The initiative to complete assignments on time without constant pestering.
  • A mastery of the adobe suite of products.
  • Digital and Social Media experience.        
  • A degree in Communication Design, Art Direction, Graphic Design and / or a pedigree from a portfolio school (or something equally impressive).

BONUS POINTS:

  • If you have experience with motion design whether in After Effects or any other software.

YOU MUST INCLUDE A LINK TO YOUR PORTFOLIO SITE FOR CONSIDERATION

WE OFFER:

  • A generous PTO policy that recognizes that we all have lives outside of work
  • Healthcare policies that support everyone’s reproductive rights
  • Volunteer time off to vote and support causes you care about
  • A commitment to an inclusion-first mindset, and a dedicated DEI task force called the Variable Vanguard
  • Competitive compensation, including peer-to-peer bonuses
  • A hybrid team (and agency) which includes fully remote team members

We are an EOE and do not discriminate against applicants due to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, national origin, veteran status or on the basis of disability. We embrace applicants of all of backgrounds.

Due to the high volume of responses, we will only be able to contact you if we move forward with your candidacy. Thank you for your interest in The Variable.
