Soul, performance and style take flight at Jordan Brand. With its deep roots in basketball, the Jordan Brand began as an homage to one player: Michael Jordan. Since then, Jordan has become synonymous with peak performance and an endless pursuit of greatness. Employees in merchandising, product branding, sports marketing and sales bring creativity, innovation and audacious design to footwear and apparel, all with one mission in mind: help athletes fly on and off the court.

The Jordan Design team is inspired by the Greatest of All Time, and is focused on continuing to deliver product that is made and engineered to the exact specification of championship athletes. On and off the court, we want our consumers and athletes to feel confident in the way they look and feel, the same way the greatest player who ever played the game felt every time he laced up his J's. Jordan Design is a high performance team that works together, pushes the boundaries, and always stays focused on delivering the best product for the consumer.
We're looking for an outstanding Sr Footwear Color Designer for the Jordan Women's team to combine their experience, problem solving abilities, and creativity to help build the future of Jordan Women's Footwear Color Design.

The ideal candidate needs to be a highly creative problem solver, who doesn't settle for anything less than the best Color Design solutions, to meet the needs of the consumer or athlete. This person will be focused on elevating the consumer experience by focusing on both the art and science of Color strategy and application, and driving Color Design excellence through the connection of trend, design, development, and manufacturing.
If this is you, you'll be leading Jordan Women's Color, by partnering with the Jordan FW Design, Materials, and Development teams, and bringing to life the seasonal creative direction through Footwear Color Design strategy and application. You will use your advanced skills to build color palettes based on seasonal creative concepts and color strategy. You will obsess color application on product, plan multi-season color blocking strategies, and craft a consumer and brand-right narrative through the use of color.

From establishing color direction, creating color palettes, finalizing color in tech packs, working with manufacturing partners to communicating directly with consumers, the daily responsibilities of this role are wide ranging, challenging, and rewarding!
This role has a direct report, and reports directly to the Jordan Color Sr Design Director, while regularly partnering with other Footwear and Apparel Color Designers, Footwear Designers, Materials Designers, Developers, the Product Director, and Product Line Managers.

  • Bachelor's degree and at least 8 years of relevant Color Design experience or a combination of relevant education and experience.
