Graphic Designer

Job description

Synthesis is looking for a designer with a strong background in brand identity and graphic design who is passionate about working on a high-level creative team. The graphic designer will utilize design not merely as a vessel through which meaning might be communicated, but a clear aesthetic embodiment of how Synthesis feels -- complex, full of wonder, and highly collaborative. The graphic designer will develop and expand the visual language of Synthesis and collaborate with the creative/marketing teams regularly to produce unique, sharable assets that both fit within and expand upon our brand guidelines. Depending on job performance early on, lots of creative latitude might be granted in developing the Synthesis visual language.

Job requirements

Think you could be our person? Let's find out.

  • Are you comfortable using the Adobe Creative Suite? Are you advanced in Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop?
  • Do you have a large, varied portfolio of design work? We're not interested in how long you've been designing, but the way you design and both visualize and communicate complex information. 
  • Will you be able to work on a highly collaborative team and design with an iterative approach? Can you discuss design outside of its role as visual ornamentation and create real design solutions? Will you work with us to most efficaciously marry form and function?
  • Will you be flexible in filling varied and multiple graphic design needs? Will you consistently push the style towards precision, conciseness, and excellence?

If you recognize yourself in these questions and cannot wait to push apply, we'd love to hear from you. We guarantee you'll love the team, and you simply can't find a better mission. Help us accelerate human progress through education. Help us build Team Synthesis.
