US: An accomplished creative team of illustrators, animators, photographers, creative strategists, and generally badass designers (if we do say so ourselves) looking to grow.
YOU: A budding young designer who bleeds #ff0000 and has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Someone whose Instagram feed is slowly being taken over by artists, creators, and brands who make cool sh*t. You’ve got an eye for design, a mind for collaboration, and the drive to continually push creative boundaries.
As a Junior Visual Designer at Vert you’ll be in the trenches with us, helping to create everything from social posts to websites. A spirit of collaboration will be necessary as you’ll be working closely with other members of the Design team and the Digital Brand Strategy team to create deliverables that are on-brand as well as creatively exciting for both the client and target audience. Some of the things you’ll be working on include creative concepting, organic social feed and story posts, paid media campaigns, email campaigns, websites, photo editing, and that’s just the beginning.
Our ideal candidate is a self-starter, a killer collaborator, and an innovator at heart. We need someone who can find solutions to creative problems and has a growing portfolio of projects to back it up. They need to be proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite (no, experience in Canva does not qualify), and some knowledge of Sketch, After Effects, or Invision is a plus. Ideally, our candidate also has 1- 3years of experience minimum (and yes, internships count).
