Scout Branding Co. is looking for a talented Web and Graphic Designer to join our team.

The right person will bring a lot of talent, a strong work ethic and enthusiasm to our team. You will be designing websites–large, small, simple and complex–and creating assets for marketing campaigns.

We design with empathy.

We make interactions and functions as intuitive as possible.

Such projects include, but are not limited to: websites, advertisements, landing pages, social media, collateral, digital campaigns, email campaigns, and Keynote presentations.

You will be meeting with internal stakeholders or external clients to discuss objectives for websites and other online projects and will sit in on discovery sessions with the client and the rest of the Scout team in order to learn what the client wants to accomplish. You will collaborate with the team to create a great design that makes it easy for the user to navigate. You must be able to work independently and stick to timelines.
