Junior Designer – Full-time

Paradox Design Studio is looking for a full-time Junior Designer to join our team. We are a small, but growing team of dedicated creatives with a passion for design. We specialize in creating branding and websites for those out to change the world. We are a creative design studio, but we don’t sit around and play video games all day. We bust it and get things done. Because changing the world is serious business.

What you’ll be doing:
We can promise you one thing – you won’t be bored. You’ll take on a wide variety of projects including logos and branding, all kinds of print materials, and a good amount of web and social media graphics as well. Some projects will be all yours, and on some you’ll collaborate with the rest of the team. You’ll have a lot of interaction with clients. Most of them are pretty inspiring people, so you might actually enjoy it.

Who you are:
You did your time in school and you’ve gotten your feet wet in design. You’re not an expert, but you have a strong understanding of design fundamentals, branding, and web basics. Even though you may be young, you’re mature, responsible, and can manage your time well. You have good communication skills, both written and verbally. Most importantly, you are passionate about design and life. While your friends are busy posting “selfies” to Instagram, you’re working hard to make a contribution to make the world a better place.

The specs:
BFA or BA in Graphic Design or similar
1-2 years of design work experience; we may consider a recent grad with a killer portfolio
Proficiency with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign
Familiarity with HTML and CSS
Proven ability to work autonomously under tight deadlines on multiple projects

What we offer you:
The most important thing you’ll get here is not the paycheck, but the experience. If you caught yourself rolling your eyes just now, then you can stop reading.

You’ll learn from a team that has over 20 years of combined experience in the world of design and advertising. We don’t expect you to be a Junior forever. You’ll sharpen your skills and either move up or move on, but we’ll cheer you on the whole way. We’ll give you cool projects and a creative work space – no cubicles here. Your work will be something you can be proud of, even if no one ever sees what you did. This is a salaried position (sorry, no benefits) working on-site at our studio in downtown Hollywood, Florida, Monday-Friday, beginning July 1.

What’s next:
If you think you’re the one we’re looking for, then let’s get this started! Send an email to hola@paradoxcreates.com with the subject “Junior Designer” telling us briefly why we should consider you. Include your resume and a link to your online portfolio. If you don’t have an online portfolio, then get in your time machine, set it to 2013, and try again later.

Bonus points if you hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, or post a quick video or Vine telling us who you are. Don’t be scared.

Apply now. Because if you don’t, someone else will.
