Identity Designer

Matchstic

Posted 1 day ago

Job description

We are looking for a team-minded designer who cares deeply about clients and has a breadth of capabilities: someone who can design across a range of styles, for a range of mediums, with a primary focus on brand identity. We need a person who is confident presenting and knows how to defend their work with strategic rationale. This person should also be a conceptual and strategic thinker: someone who can interpret a brief and connect the dots, working cross-functionally with writers, strategists and project managers. We value strong communicators who are both independently responsible and highly collaborative.

What you'll do here:

Build brands across a variety of industries.

Visualize brand strategies, names and messaging personas.

Craft logos and unified identity systems that are well-defined through brand guidelines and expressed across key touchpoints (print, digital, environmental, experiential).

Present work to and collaborate with clients.

Hold responsibility over the execution of projects through all phases of the identity process—from immersions and research to design application.

Contribute concepts and executions—with others—quickly and with attention to detail, while managing our clients' business needs.

Mentorship and art direction of junior designers

Building thoughtful, creative presentations of design work.

Commit to knowing and understanding our clients and their end users—both their functional and emotional needs.

Raise the quality bar for design at Matchstic through your design work, attitude and innovation

You may be asked to travel from time to time and will have the opportunity to participate in professional development as well as firm-wide outings like Creative Mornings, lunch n learns, retreats, off-sites and milestone celebrations.

We'd love to hear from you if you:

Have a minimum of 4 years of creative agency or firm experience in identity design

Have a portfolio of strong visual identity system examples (not just logos)

Are fluent in industry tools: Illustrator, InDesign, Sketch, Photoshop

Display a deep understanding of both print production and interactive digital experiences (coding and animation are bonuses—mention them!)

Are a robust conceptual thinker

Have strong organization and communication skills with clear attention to detail

Can balance multiple priorities and meet deadlines

Desire and ability to collaborate in a cross-functional environment

Are a strong self-starter who functions effectively with ambiguity

Have client presentation experience

Bonus Experience & Skills:

Motion design experience

UI design experience

Experiential design experience
