Blue Q is looking for a Graphic Design/Product Development Swiss Army Knife!
You'll help conceptualize and design all the different visual tools that support Blue Q's products and communicate our unique voice. Projects include graphic design and production, blank-page concept development, catalogs, website, tradeshow graphics, marketing pieces, copywriting, social media content and more. This position works alongside the designers and art directors that make up our New Product Development team.
This is a full-time, in-house position in Pittsfield, Mass., smack in the middle of the beautiful, bucolic Berkshires. Fun, fast-paced, open work environment with health insurance, profit-sharing, retirement plan, awesome coworkers and room to grow.
Curious and proactive, brave and versatile. Fast and loose, with an eagle-eye for the details. You look good wearing a variety of thinking caps and you're eager to roll up your sleeves. 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 wide 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 is a background in (or just a good ear for) writing. You might not know how to make a table in Excel, but you know how to Google it.
We want to see:
A diverse portfolio full of clever solutions, playful methods, and far-reaching inspiration. We want your print stuff, product stuff, branding 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. Have you managed a social media account? Are you an animation wiz? Have you written a series of mystery novels? It's all relevant!
Blue Q is:
We've been making cool stuff for 30 years and you never know what's next! Blue Q is a growing company and you'll be expected to grow with us. Our New Product Development team is one big happy collaborative family, jumping from project to project with speed and ease. We're outspoken, passionate, silly, and stubborn.
