  • Important! This position is remote the majority of the work week, with only 1-2 in-office days per week at our Zionsville location. That means “casual Friday” is now “casual Monday-Friday!!”

Responsibilities:

  • Design Work: You’re a versatile artist with the ability to multitask and work on multiple projects in multiple mediums throughout the workday. You’re capable of striking a balance between strategically targeted and aesthetically compelling digital (and occasionally print) designs for all of our clients, in a plethora of industries, with diverse audiences.

  • Collaboration: You’re an active participant in meetings, responsive to taking instruction from the creative director and clients, and a natural at working together with copywriters and other marketing managers at all project stages. You can carry on constructive conversations via Slack, Phone, Video Conference, and email.

  • Jack-of-All-Mediums: We know design unicorns don’t exist, but you’ll still need to demonstrate a versatile design skillset and the ability to create visual messaging for all of our project mediums, which include (but aren’t limited to): digital and print advertising, social media posts, email marketing, digital and print marketing materials, and website assets. (Bonus Points if you are experienced in wireframing, site design, and know your way around Squarespace.) (Double Bonus Points if you’ve heard of and used the principles of Storybranding by Donald Miller).

  • The Devil is in the Details: You’re detail-oriented; the kind of person who “measures twice and cuts once.” Even if you didn’t write the content, you’re not afraid to keep an eye out for typos, grammatical errors, and run-on sentences. Branding is holy ground for you, so you double-check your fonts and colors religiously.

  • Consummate Professional: You’re a pro at meeting deadlines, keeping design projects on-track and on-budget, recording your time, and keeping all relevant team members informed about your progress and roadblocks. 

  • Clear Communication: As a team spread across multiple states and time zones, effective and clear communication is key. We won’t flood your inbox with questions and requests, and we won’t ask that you canvas your workspace with post-it notes to keep track of projects. We use Slack to stay in touch on a day-to-day basis, and we keep projects in Asana so that you can find what you need to get the work done. Even though we utilize modern tech to talk, we aren’t afraid of picking up the phone either.
