Junior/Production Designer

As a junior / production designer, you are a design chameleon. Within a given framework you quickly and efficiently adopt, mimic and build upon artwork. You know the ins and outs of Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign and have extremely strong attention to detail. You work on a project once the direction has been established, collaborating closely with our design team to make sure files are tight, clean and ready for the world to see.

If you have experience executing marketing projects from conception to production, including websites, brochures and product packaging, that’s a plus. Ultimately, you will work with the Kitchen Sink crew to support our clients’ brands by delivering high quality pieces on tight deadlines. 

Illustration skills and/or experience with Adobe XD, WebGl, Cinema4D, and AfterEffects are also bonuses – so be sure to let us know if that’s in your skill set!

  • Contribute to design efforts across all media platforms, including digital communications, websites, and emails, marketing materials, print advertising, motion graphics, logos and supporting brand materials.
