Mid Level to Senior Designer

Oh, hello there...

We’re Madwell, a full-service agency based in Brooklyn with our first satellite office in Boulder CO, soon to be Denver! We are looking for an adventurous Senior Designer to help our burgeoning design team. We’re not looking for just anybody. We’re looking for someone who can conceptualize as well as execute, direct and also collaborate, but most importantly communicate, both verbally and graphically. You will need to be able to tread water in a pixel ocean, devour a vector layer cake, and solve problems on the fly. The internet has been your playground since XPages, but you also know not to export your print designs in RGB. You're willing to put in the occasional overtime for extra-awesome projects or malt beverages. You're a critical thinker who likes to design cool shit and have fun doing it, and you aren’t scared of playing in new mediums, whether digital, analog, or metaphysical.

What You’ll Do

Conceptualize

  • Brainstorm big ideas with the copy, design, account and production teams
  • Bring those big ideas into a visual and conceptual reality
  • Establish high standards in process, design, file naming/structure and presentation
  • Stay on top of all new techniques and trends in multichannel, multi-medium marketing efforts

Direct

  • Collaborate with the creative team, production and accounts to understand fully client needs, solutions, on all projects
  • Clearly articulate your vision and provide insightful, efficient, design solutions with your team
  • Direct the creation of visual assets with internal and external resources such as photographers, imagers, illustrators, animators, and developers
  • Present ideas, strategy, process and plans clearly and effectively to internal teams and clients
  • Manage your time and workload for you and the team

Execute

  • With the team, and sometimes on your own, you must be able to bring all these big ideas to life across medium, time and space

WHERE YOU'RE STRONG

  • Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Keynote
  • Mac-leaning but Windows-capable
  • Have a broad understanding of typography, period & current styles, design theory, and best web practices
  • Solid presentation skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and/or video production a plus but not required
  • Please have at least one socially acceptable addiction

WHERE YOU’VE BEEN

We’re looking for someone with 6+ years of experience in the field, as well as prior experience leading a team. That said, we care more about aptitude than perfection, and we always appreciate an unusual career trajectory. If you think you’d be a fit, tell us why—we want to hear your story.

But Enough About You, Here’s A Little About Us:

We are a Brooklyn, NY / CO based creative agency specializing in thinking big thoughts, putting them on small pieces of paper, building what we see on those small pieces of paper, and performing enough testing and refinement to qualify us as clinically obsessive compulsive. 

We strive to provide multifaceted, multi-channel, multi-medium advertising and marketing support, traditionally the purview of much larger agencies. Grounding ourselves in a deep technical understanding of ideation, design, copy, code, and analytics, we adhere to a simple recipe for success: be a tiny giant. Our commitment to boutique agency-style client relationships empowers us to be lean, mean (by this we mean personable and nice), responsive, and adaptive. And thick glasses with addictions to learning, mastering cutting edge technologies, and data analysis fuel our passion to bring complex concepts to life as naturally (and beautifully) as the big guys.
