Identity Designer Position

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 a team-minded designer who has a breadth of capabilities: someone who can design across a range of styles, for a range of mediums, with a primary focus on brand identity. We need a person who is confident presenting and knows how to defend their work with strategic rationale. This person should also be a conceptual and strategic thinker: someone who 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.

If chosen for this role, you will have the opportunity to build brands across a variety of industries. You will help visualize brand strategies, names and messaging personas. You will craft logos and identity systems that are well-defined through brand guidelines and expressed across key brand touchpoints. You will be responsible for project execution through all phases of the identity process—from immersions and research to design application. You will be expected to contribute concepts and executions–with others—quickly and with attention to detail, managing client business needs. You may be asked to travel from time to time and you will have the opportunity to participate in fun things like Creative Mornings, lunch n learns, staff outings and milestone celebrations on a regular basis.

If this sounds like your kind of gig, please send us your resume and portfolio link.
