We're Hiring: A Designer / Swiss Army Knife

ByQ

THE JOB:

Blue Q makes gifty stuff – unique and useful items designed in collaboration with artists all over the world. It all starts with our 7-person New Product Development team, made up of designers, art directors, writers, and project managers. The team dreams up product ideas, directs and refines work by the artists who make those products, and designs the assets that sell them.

As a designer, your projects will include graphic design and production, blank-page concept development, catalogs, website, tradeshow graphics, marketing pieces, copywriting, social media content, and more.

This is a full-time, in-house position in Pittsfield, Mass., smack in the middle of the beautiful, bucolic Berkshires – just a few hours drive from NYC and Boston. It’s a fun, fast-paced, open work environment with health insurance, profit-sharing, a retirement plan, awesome coworkers, and room to grow.

YOU ARE:

Curious and proactive, brave and versatile. Fast and loose, with an eagle eye for the details. You’re organized, focused, hungry, and always listening. You know how to own your work and share it at the same time.

YOUR SKILLS ARE:

5+ years of experience working in a range of creative and collaborative environments. Expert Adobe Creative Suite skills and a basic understanding of HTML and CSS. A foundation in illustration is a big plus, as well as experience with (or just a good ear for) copywriting. Background in graphic design, product design, and packaging design is all relevant.

WE WANT TO SEE:

A diverse portfolio full of clever solutions, playful methods, and far-reaching inspiration. We want your professional stuff, personal stuff, silly stuff, and stuff that’s been scribbled on a napkin or built in your garage. Tell us about the other things you’ve done, too. Have you managed a social media account? Are you an animation wiz? Have you written a series of mystery novels? Let us know!

MORE ON BLUE Q:

We’ve been making things for 30 years – and it’s always different from one year to the next. Now 60-people strong, we’re growing and are looking for someone to grow with us. The whole company is one big, collaborative family, jumping from project to project with speed and ease, as conscious about our culture as we are about making things. We’re a bunch of outspoken, passionate, and stubborn goofballs.

TO APPLY:

Working remotely is not an option. Experience is a must. 

Send cover letter, resume, and portfolio to HireMe@BlueQ.com. No phone calls, please. Apply before 2/15/20.




Thanks a Bunch!
