About This Role 📝

The Junior Designer will report to Associate Design Director (and resident lemon pepper wing expert) Evon Coleman, and will be responsible for creating various visual content for tech brands with a healthy amount of independence.  

You will be collaborating closely with our team of designers, editors, strategists, and account managers, designing a steady stream of visual content for our digital publishing clients. 

That will involve creating various digital visual assets from sketch to production, sourcing and editing photography, creating original graphics for social posts, and designing/formatting presentations, to name a few. 

It’s important that the person in this role has the ability to swiftly adapt to unique and challenging situations, and are passionate about the creative process! We’re also looking for someone who can take constructive feedback from many different stakeholders.

Lastly, and most importantly, you’ll be joining the design team (aka the coolest department at Codeword), amongst a super fun & creative crew that loves sharing technical skills, creative inspiration, and good times.

 

What You’ll Be Doing 🧩

  • Various design production for web, digital, and social channels
  • Vector illustration/layout
  • Photo sourcing & retouching
  • Video editing
  • Short animations/motion design
  • Contribute to creative brainstorms & reviews

 

Your Compensation ​💰​

People –  that's you! – are the heart of our business, and we believe a culture of pay transparency benefits both Codeword and our team members’ careers. 

For this role we’re looking to pay $40K - $55K, depending on experience.

 

A few more things you should know about Codeword ⭐

  • The Codeword dream: Make good money doing work you care about with people you like. 
  • We love our clients (they write the checks!), which means maintaining a high bar for the creativity, smarts, responsiveness, and communication skills we offer them. 
  • We’re around 100 people, big enough to handle large-scale marketing programs, small enough that you’ll have an impact on our culture. 
  • We’re a friendly team, we look after each other, and we grow our careers together. 
  • We respect everyone’s personal life. After-hours emails are strongly frowned upon, night and weekend work is very rare, and employees are encouraged to pursue their side-hustles. 
  • We’re all grownups here, and we trust each other to get the work done, whether at home or in an office or a time zone on the other side of the world. 
  • We believe in defaulting to openness. Our calendars, our salary tiers, and our doors are open for all to see. (Except for secret client stuff, which we guard with our lives.) 
  • We’re a proud member of the global WE Communications family.
