Multidisciplinary Designer

You there, designer? It’s us, Madwell.

You can tread water in a pixel ocean, devour a vector layer cake, and solve problems on your feet. 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 (and malt beverage clients). You're comfortable throwing your conceptual designs into the mix, and you’re not dependent on constant direction. 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.

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
  • Work and play well with others
  • Understand the value of digital, media and strategy
  • Front end development, knowledge of CSS/HTML a big plus
  • Please have at least one socially acceptable addiction
  • Understanding the value of communication and presentation
  • You think quality over quantity, but always over deliver

Where you’ve been.

While we ask that you have at least 2-3 years of experience, we care more about aptitude than perfection, and we always appreciate an unusual career trajectory. We want to hear your story.

So if you’re ready to hit the ground running (literally—we onboard people by offboarding them from a moving van), please write us. Now.

But enough about you.

About Madwell:

Madwell is a Brooklyn-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.

Founded a few short years ago by a group of agency runaways, we strive to provide multifaceted, multichannel, 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.
