Identity Designer

Design · United States, Georgia
Department Design
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

Description

We are looking for an identity designer with experience in branding, print/packaging and digital design. You will work within our design team and collaborate externally with client teams and internally with writers, strategists, directors and project managers. We value strong communicators who are both independently responsible and highly team-minded.


Where We Work

This full-time opportunity can be fully remote, or a hybrid role based in Atlanta, and may include some client travel (when safe and appropriate to do so) as well as occasional in-person Matchstic team meetings.


Responsibilities

As a part of this role, you will:

  • Create boundary-pushing identity systems and brand applications (digital, print, environmental, packaging, experiential) in a collaborative environment
  • Use and expand your design expertise across a wide range of aesthetic styles
  • Craft and present visual work with strong conceptual thinking and strategic rationale 
  • Build well-defined, thorough brand guidelines for our partners to use
  • Report to a Design Director


Must Haves 

  • A thorough knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite
  • Working knowledge of Sketch and Figma. However, the ability to teach yourself new programs is more valuable than knowing everything right off the bat.
  • Experience creating brandmarks/identity systems and extensively applying them across a variety of mediums
  • Commitment to knowing and understanding our clients and their end users
  • Strong communication and written English skills
  • Ability to successfully contribute to multiple projects simultaneously, handle a fast-paced work environment and changing priorities


*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 CreativeMornings, lunch n’ learns, retreats, off-sites and milestone celebrations.

How We Hire

We want you to meet with a variety of people from different teams, and get a sense of what it’s like to work together. This means our interview process takes a bit more time than most places so we can get to know each other.


Our first interview is a conversational-style interview. The best way to prepare for this is to spend some time reflecting on all of the experiences you've had and the things you've done to bring you to the point you're at today. No need to swot up on anything, it's more of a two-sided conversation than us "grilling" you.


Next, you will meet several members of the team so you get to know the people you could be working with, and the problems they’re currently solving. You will be asked to present 2 projects in your portfolio with us so that we can get a sense of your process, collaborative posture, problem soling, conceptual and strategic thinking and skillset.
Next, you will receive a test project. You will be fairly paid for your time.


We make a decision after collecting lots of diverse feedback from various team members. The hiring team will take the time to meet, and come back to you with a decision.


Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

We believe that in order to serve our clients well, our team must bring a diversity of backgrounds, identities and perspectives to the table and see this open role as an opportunity to expand the collective experience of our group.  We are an equal opportunity employer that is firmly committed to building a more diverse and inclusive workplace. Matchstic does not discriminate in recruitment or employment on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, orientation, nationality, age, disability, status or other non-merit factor.

 

Work Culture

We are strategic creatives and creative strategists having fun doing work that empowers passionate clients. It’s a level of work that requires commitment and follow through in our work-life. We are learning that you can bring your distinct values, points of view, skills, and abilities from wherever you are. And, we all succeed when we take care of each other.
