We’re looking for a exceptional designer to join the Brandless Creative Studio!
Based in San Francisco, Brandless™ is a fresh approach to consumer commerce. Our mission is deeply rooted in quality, transparency, and community-driven values. Starting with everyday essentials, Brandless™ makes it possible for everyone to have access to better stuff for fewer dollars.
The Brandless Creative Studio is a strong team of art directors, designers, writers and content creators with big ideas. We love impromptu brainstorm sessions, animated gifs, and and lots of yummy gummy fish to keep us inspired. For us, teamwork is dreamwork. We collaborate daily to create exceptional work across all touchpoints: our online store, marketing channels, social media, blog, community events, swag, packaging and more.
The perfect candidate will love modern, simple, clean design and have impeccable typography skills. Your portfolio will speak for itself, but that shouldn’t stop you from telling us about it in your cover letter. (#humblebrags encouraged.)
