Hello, we’re The Sasha Group! We serve a wide range of businesses from helping young startups develop their core to helping established brands think differently and flex with the times. From building brand foundations to building momentum, we combine creativity with thoughtfulness and speed to solve business challenges.

We like to describe ourselves as “consultancy at the front and an agency ‘round the back.” 

At The Sasha Group, we believe that smart, creative thinking is the ultimate variable that makes brands come to life, whether it’s the startup looking to break into a space or the big, well-known brand looking to break the mold. And while we believe good ideas can come from anywhere, not everyone has the talent, skills, and craft to design and animate those ideas to life. 

That’s where you come in.

We are looking for Design Residents who are looking to master their craft and are entrepreneurial about how they can use their design, animation, and video skills, to execute against a client’s goals. Sometimes that means pumping out a bunch of memes and GIFs that’ll make people laugh and cry. Sometimes it’s designing Canva templates to help new companies get off the ground. Sometimes it’s collaborating in a brainstorm for a big campaign. Every deliverable is challenging, but highly rewarding.

Who’s on the team?

You’ll be joining a tightly-knit creative team working with emerging and established brands across CPG, fashion, food & beverage, financial services, entertainment, and more.

  • Working with a wide range and quality of video and static imagery and  tailoring them to individual platforms and audiences.
  • Understand pop culture, trends, and what’s happening in the world to make concise and relevant creative recommendations.
  • Analyzing what makes content great and how our brands can do it better.
  • Collaborating with a team of other designers, copywriters, and art directors to bring brands to life.
  • Honing your design, editing, and animation skills with the best of the best.

Sounds fun, but what kind of deliverables are we talking about?

  • Creating efficient and smart templates in Photoshop for our clients..
  • Designing presentations to pitch big ideas to clients.
