Bread+Buzz, a branding agency, is seeking a graphic designer to join their team in New York/Greenwich, CT. The individual will work closely with the two partners to develop iconic and engaging digital and print creative.

They believe that a job is only a job if you don’t love what you are doing. They don’t believe in clocking in and out and don’t believe in sitting in an office from 9 to 5. They work with purpose and meaning – for themselves and for their clients.

If you’re a talented UI/graphic designer interested in being part of a growing team, with the freedom to work both remotely and in their office, please keep reading!

They call themselves bread+buzz because they create positive noise (the buzz) for their clients, and they also make them money (the bread). They work with exciting start ups in various industries as well as more established companies such as WeWork, Spartan and Maidenform. Every project and client they take on is different. Many need help creating their identity and site while others are looking for new ideas to take their business in a totally different direction.

They care a whole lot about the design, presentation and visual experience of every facet of business they work on and are looking for someone who has that same passion.

What does the right person look like?

Any basic knowledge of business and/or programming is valuable, and they’re keen to find someone with experience in startups, as well as is familiar with lean & agile working methodologies.

You’ll be responsible, proactive, innovative, eager to learn, and meticulous.

  1. A strong background of at least 2 years in graphic design and UI design (a vast student portfolio that knocks us off our socks will suffice as well!)
  2. A thorough understanding of how to design intuitive digital and print experiences for websites and mobile (site functionality, interaction, site architecture, user interfaces and navigation).
