FANTASTIC Senior Packaging Designer Opportunity -- 100% REMOTE

Join a growing design team at a leading brand packaging agency and make an immediate and significant impact

solving, that leads into high-caliber executions, informed by a strategic framework and narrative.

As Senior Designer, you will work collaboratively to creatively solve a client’s business problem, ensuring that solutions bring the strategy to life, successfully and on time. You will need to showcase an ability to work and collaborate within teams, as well as demonstrate the independence and resourcefulness demanded by an agile and highly dynamic agency environment.

  • Communicates well visually and verbally
  • Connect the “why” of designs to a strategic framework
  • Thrives in a collaborative space
  • Curiosity and passion about design: gets excited to talk shop and always learn
  • Keeps up with trends and seeks opportunities to grow and network outside of the office
  • Hungry to share and spread the love – wants to mentor junior designers and interns
  • Demonstrates a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-it-done attitude
  • Helps create efficiencies and improve processes

Prerequisites:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design or related field
  • 5+ years of experience in packaging and/or brand design
  • Expert fluency in design software, especially Adobe Creative Cloud, Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign
  • Well-rounded portfolio showcasing excellent understanding of typography, photography, Illustration, presentation skills, sketching and design methodology
  • Familiarity with both iOS and Windows; fluency in Keynote, Word, Excel and PowerPoint
