Senior Designer? Step right up.

April 18, 2019

We’re on the hunt for a full-time Senior Designer with serious cross-media chops—from wine labels to websites, brand identities to billboards.

You’re someone with an opinion and a keen eye for detail, who thrives on collaboration but won’t hesitate to grab the reins and work independently. You’ve long since mastered the tools of the trade, you’re up on current trends, and you’re as passionate about the quality of what you produce as we are.

Why Doubleknot? We’re a tight-knit and open-minded group of folks who take our work seriously, but never ourselves. We’ve been around for over 25 years because we trust each other and believe in the impact our work can have. We produce award-winning creative, but more importantly, we create solutions that connect with audiences and move needles for our clients. Those clients span a wide range of industries, including corporate heavyweights and smaller local businesses just like us.

You’ll never get pigeonholed into a single account, industry or medium—and you’ll have the opportunity to really own projects and see them through to completion.

This is a place where work/life balance actually means something. We work really hard but put in hours that still get us home for dinner. We laugh a lot, crank music in the studio and knock off early on Fridays for drinks. The kitchen is stocked with snacks and the espresso machine is always at the ready to pull a shot or four. You’ll be supported by a leadership team that truly wants the best for you as a person and surrounded by a team of strategists, designers, writers and account executives that will push you to do your best work and always have your back.

We learned a long time ago that doing good work with good people doesn’t have to be a pipe dream, and we’ve built our culture around both.

Sound like a good fit? Drop us a line. We’d love to meet you. Please send your résumé, salary requirements and a link to your portfolio, along with a cover letter telling us a little bit about yourself and what lights you up as a designer.

  • Exceptional design, concepting, communication and people skills

  • Strong time management and organizational skills
