Senior Designer, Brand - Creative Studio

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time

Company Description

When we launched the little white reader, we invented mobile, ubiquitous payments and enabled anyone to start, run, and grow a business. Ten years and billions of transactions later we’re reimagining commerce for businesses of all types and sizes—we’re enabling the independent electrician to send invoices, helping the beauty salon pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

Job Description

Square is looking for a Senior Designer to join our award-winning Creative Studio team. You will collaborate with our different product teams, including PMs, PMMs, Art Directors, Product Designers and Engineers to create smart solutions that help tell the story of Square’s brand and growing ecosystem of products.

This is a crucial, hands-on role that requires the ability to translate project strategy into great design experiences. Our designers are a central part of a team of program managers, art directors, designers, copywriters, creative strategists, and engineers. For us, design isn’t static; it moves, talks, sings and vibrates. You will need to think in three dimensions; static, print, moving animations and how people interact with your design.

Responsibilities:

  • Produce brand and campaign standards, templates, and style guides
  • Work collaboratively on projects to create concepts/mood boards, graphic elements/solutions, and visual treatments
  • Contribute and communicate with a team that includes designers, producers, product strategists, copywriters and engineers
  • Create video & motion graphics style frames, exhibition graphics, print collateral, presentation designs, information graphics, branding and digital advertisements
  • You may also co-direct photo shoots and design physical installations 
  • Support and mentor other designers
     

Qualifications

You have:

  • 4+ years of industry experience
  • Expert in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Sketch / Figma
  • Ability to execute multiple styles of design and illustration
  • Mastery and experimentation of design fundamentals (color, typographic skills, layout)
  • Understand the opportunities and limitations of different mediums


Plus:

  • Experience leading projects through design process
  • Animation/motion graphics knowledge in software such as After Effects or Cinema 4D
