Graphic & Interactive Designer – Hybrid or remote from Portland, OR.

Matter is an independent and thriving brand elevation agency unifying PR, social media, creative services, and digital marketing. From fast growth startups to established brands, we work with clients across diverse industries, including technology, consumer and professional services. As we’ve grown, we’ve maintained focus on building and nurturing a team-oriented and creative environment because we know that when we tap into our collective brainpower we come up with inspired solutions for our clients and because it makes for a happy place to work. We’re proud of the many awards that we’ve garnered as a Top Place to Work and as a Top Agency in the US, but we’re equally as proud of the many organizations that we’ve helped through our agency-wide volunteer initiative. If you’re the kind of professional that takes their work seriously, but also doesn’t take themselves too seriously, this could be the place to grow your career.

You’ve shed the junior title and have a few years of professional design experience across a wide variety of projects. You love being part of a team taking problems and bringing the solutions to life through engaging concepts and compelling art direction. You understand the value of strategy and messaging and can make the right design and stylistic choices to simplify the complex and connect with a target audience. Maybe you’ve cut your teeth working on integrated teams tackling huge UX challenges, big idea campaigns, or untangling confusing brand architectures. Maybe it’s all three and more. You have some huge successes shinning gloriously in your portfolio but have endured some humbling lessons and learned to pivot, compromise, and rethink, knowing that sometimes it’s all just part of the journey. If so, the creative team at Matter wants to chat.

Responsibilities for this role include:

  • Translate strategy and concepts into integrated campaigns, brand systems, and digital experiences for a wide range of clients and industries, including a mix of B2B and B2C, technology, healthcare, food & beverage, higher education etc.
  • Be a design chameleon who can create unique visual solutions based on the brief rather than a design parrot who simply cherry picks and recycles the latest trends.
  • Be open to feedback and criticism from team members and clients yet be building up the experience and confidence to know when and where to push back.
  • Know when to ask questions but also know when and how to find the answers yourself.
  • Accept that PowerPoint is a necessary evil and roll up your sleeves to grind out a deck every now and then.

What you’ll need:

  • Have at least 3 years of professional experience in an agency or inhouse marketing department.
  • Have an online portfolio of diverse client or inhouse work, presented in a way that shows you are proud of it. Works should be from your professional background, but one or two really slick college or personal projects are ok too.
  • Have some experience thoughtfully speaking about and presenting your work to non-creative folks but know it’s probably an area where you can still improve.
  • Ability to work with a wide range of personalities.
  • UX/UI, video, motion graphics, or illustration experience a huge plus.

Please include a link to your online portfolio in your resume/cover letter.
