Senior Identity Designer

Matchstic is the brand identity house of the South. We focus on creating and developing brands that have something positive to contribute to the world, so a lot of what we do is help clients understand who they are, why they matter and how to express it to the right people. It’s deep, thoughtful work that helps shape deep, thoughtful brands.

We are looking for seasoned senior designers who care deeply about clients, collaboration and distilling complex problems into beautiful, high-quality, thoughtful, useful work. We're looking for a breadth of capabilities: someone who can design across a wide range of styles and mediums, with a primary focus on brand identity, while leading clients and art directing other designers.

Our senior designers are confident, practiced presenters who know how to defend their work with strategic rationale. They are conceptual and strategic thinkers. They can interpret a brief and connect the dots, working cross-functionally with writers, strategists and project managers. We value strong communicators who are both independently responsible and highly collaborative.

What you'll do here:

  • Build brands across a variety of industries.
  • Visualize brand strategies, names and messaging personas.
  • Lead the creation of unified identity systems that are well-defined through brand guidelines and expressed across key touchpoints (print, digital, environmental, experiential).
  • Present work to and collaborate with clients.
  • Guide and train client teams toward brand implementation. 
  • Hold responsibility over the execution of projects through all phases of the identity process—from immersions and research to design application.
  • Contribute concepts and executions–guiding, collaborating and art directing team members—quickly and with attention to detail, while managing our clients' business needs.
  • Owning and building thoughtful, creative presentations of design work.
  • Commit to knowing and understanding our clients and their end users—both their functional and emotional needs.
  • Raise the quality bar for design at Matchstic through your design work, mentorship and facilitation 
  • You may be asked to travel from time to time and will have the opportunity to participate in professional development as well as firm-wide outings like Creative Mornings, lunch n learns, retreats, off-sites and milestone celebrations.

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Have a minimum of 6 years of creative agency or firm experience in identity design
  • Have a portfolio of strong visual identity system examples (not just logos)
  • Are fluent in industry tools: Illustrator, InDesign, Sketch, Photoshop
  • Display a deep understanding of both print production and interactive digital experiences (coding and animation are bonuses—mention them!)
  • Are a robust conceptual thinker
  • Have strong organization and communication skills with clear attention to detail
  • Can balance multiple priorities and meet deadlines
  • Desire and ability to collaborate in a cross-functional environment
  • Are a strong self-starter who functions effectively with ambiguity
  • Have client presentation experience

Bonus Experience & Skills:

  • Motion design experience
  • UI design experience
  • Experiential design experience
