We are seeking a talented logo designer and illustrator to join our team full time creating powerful brands for our clients. Our ideal candidate would work on site.
We create approximately 75-100 unique brands per year, largely for small businesses in related service verticals (contractors, heating and air, plumbing, construction) as well as professional organizations. We are known nationally within those verticals as the best in the business. However, we need to expand our team to keep up with the demand for our high-energy services.
Nearly every brand we create becomes the foundation for our client’s marketing campaigns, including stationery, collateral, uniforms, outdoor advertising and truck wraps.
Ninety percent of your day will be spent working on logos. Examples of our team’s stylistic approach can be found here. Examples of how those brands become moving billboards on our clients’ vehicles can be found here.
Our work changes lives. We’re passionate about what we do and the role we play helping small businesses succeed. We never cut corners and we’re always 100 percent invested in our clients’ success.
Team members enjoy a competitive salary, holidays, 401k plan, health and dental, paid vacation time, summer Fridays, and a seat in our new, custom-designed 5,200-square-foot office (conveniently behind a Dunkin Donuts!). Relocation expenses for the right candidate.
This position reports to the Chief Creative Officer, Dan Antonelli, who is also the author of Building a Big Small Business Brand.
People Skills. We take a hard line on soft skills.
Our CORE VALUES power our team and this candidate must embody these values every day!
We’re plugged in. We approach every task with a can-do attitude and maximum energy. Our team of proud brand gladiators cares about our clients’ successes and is truly invested in each business that entrusts us with its branding and marketing. Our goal is to treat our clients and each other with kindness and honesty as we work passionately toward providing strategic solutions and completing each and every task. We get excited about the opportunity to help a business propel its brand and its business forward. We greet each new challenge with enthusiasm and determination—and it’s infectious.
It’s essential to our success that we are organized and conscientious. Because we care so much about the quality of the work we produce for our clients, we are thorough and we pay attention to the details. We are careful about pixel-perfect alignment, proper grammar and clean coding. Quality is one of our key competitive advantages, so we take these things seriously. Being organized means knowing our clients well and staying on top of our projects. We communicate clearly and specifically and in a timely manner—with each other, our clients and our vendor partners.
As a team, we remain committed to having our clients’ backs, as well as each other’s backs. This commitment requires hard work and accountability. Being accountable means being on time, on budget and adhering to the highest quality on a consistent basis. This ensures our clients are happy with our work and value our partnership with them.
Our work stands out because what we produce is distinctive and unique. We take calculated risks and make bold decisions. We understand there is always room for us to grow and expand. We are committed to delivering products that benefit our clients and our team. We embrace each day as a new challenge and the next opportunity to do even greater work.
The foundation for a successful work environment is open and honest communication. This means being honest with work colleagues—and clients. Honesty is appreciated, respect is earned, trust is gained and loyalty is returned. These values are the basis of excellence in our work.
We’re all about collaboration. No one person is responsible for our success. We celebrate our achievements in the same way they were made—as a team. We also consider ourselves members of our clients’ teams. We are partners, not vendors.
To apply, please submit resume, link to your work samples, cover letter and salary requirements to: [email protected]. Equally impressive would be your ability to actually MAIL us a nice cover letter and a resume. We will try, at a minimum, to acknowledge receipt of your application. Also, let us know your favorite type of food.
