Graphic Designer

Join a creative team that’s as passionate about problem-solving as we are about design.

 

Position Overview

Calypso is seeking a talented graphic designer who knows that good design is more than pretty pixels — it should serve a larger purpose and overall brand strategy. We’re looking for someone who can listen to a client’s goals and target audience wants/needs and conceptualize and execute strategic brand designs.

 

As a graphic designer, you will work on a number of different types of projects, including branding, print, digital, and video. You will collaborate with creative and marketing teams to brainstorm and create brand strategies. You should have solid experience creating visual strategies and assets for brands, and extending a visual style across multiple platforms and media.

 

Before even opening up a program to begin a design, you should have a solid idea of the problem you’re aiming to solve and be able to communicate it clearly. You should be able to come up with multiple ways to tackle a design problem, and be able to articulate and defend your reasoning for every visual choice you make. We’re looking for someone who is also a competent writer and comfortable explaining his/her work in a written format as well as presenting to the team and clients.
