Description

SIX12 Creative is an established creative agency looking for a kick-ass Designer to join our small, quirky family. Generally speaking, we’re looking for a graphic designer, but realistically we need you to be more than that.

We’re a small team (pronounced: boutique agency), but we’ve been around for three decades and we’re fortunate to work with some big, recognizable brands. Get ready to create anything from corporate signage to outrageous online posts to animated Snapchat ads to food packaging to UI to vehicle wraps to…

Team fit is critical. We're a tight family with low turnover. If you want to be part of a big corporate agency, we're probably not a good fit for you.

JOB DESCRIPTION

We are looking for someone with formal training, at least 3–5 years experience in the field, and a desire to learn and push creative boundaries. Primarily, you will be creating composite Photoshop files for social and print, with a secondary focus on designing visual elements, websites, and videos for various media.

You love details and organization which makes you an efficient worker, but that doesn’t cramp your creativity. You’re a team player that can easily take creative direction from the onset, or in response to your designs. Coming up with new ideas is never a problem for you and staying up-to-date on design trends is a passion.

WONDERING IF YOU’RE QUALIFIED?

You should have most, if not all, of these basics:

  • 3–5 years agency experience

  • T-rex sized sense of humour, and a pygmy possum sized ego

  • Mastery of Adobe Creative Suite — your portfolio must show impressive composite Photoshop work

  • Layers in files are properly and specifically labeled

  • Follow and work within brand guidelines to ensure continuity

  • Familiarity with social media guidelines

  • Motion graphic proficiency

  • Strong design, typographic, and layout skills

  • Understanding of good UI/UX design

  • Sketch, HTML, basic CSS, WordPress

  • Impeccable grammar

  • Juggle projects while self-managing your time efficiently

  • Outrageously creative problem-solving and troubleshooting ability

Additional skills that would give you an advantage:

  • Creative copyrighting skills

  • Video editing experience

  • Programming languages

  • Project management

  • Legal drafting — ToS, privacy, contest legal

This is an intermediate to senior position.

Flexible days/hours — ideally a minimum of 2–3 regular days per week to start. Potential to grow to full-time or near-full-time.
