Senior DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATOR

 

Funnelbox is looking for a talented, senior level Designer/Illustrator with a passion for video and animation, and who loves being part of a team. In this role you will be responsible for bringing a whole range of different creative visions to life using your dynamic design and visual storytelling skills. You’ll work with a team of collaborators – sometimes taking a lead role, and sometimes following the creative vision of others. You’ll thrive in this role if you can tell great stories through design, and balance high quality work with effective time management.

This role is an opportunity to get paid for doing what you love, with clients you can feel good about, and a team who cares about the impact of our work as much as you do.

Our clients range from small nonprofits, to b-corps and mission driven organizations, to large scale corporations. Every day here is a bit different, and that exposure to a variety of different productions and creative projects means your skills will have infinite room to grow. 

At Funnelbox, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and representative workplace that benefits our team members, our clients, and our communities.

We strongly encourage people of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and non-binary people, parents, and individuals with disabilities to apply.
