What We're Looking For
• 7+ years of experience in graphic design or brand design, with in-house or agency experience
• Experience designing holistic brand systems and brand guidelines
• Strong understanding of design principles: color, typography, layout & composition
• Portfolio that shows awareness of the current culture in art, design, entertainment, technology, music, and pop culture
• Adept at demonstrating design process from start to finish (ideation phase all the way to final execution)
• Able to apply theory to practice while adapting your design process to the project at hand
• Ability to multi-task and switch context across a multitude of projects
• Excellent communication skills (in person, written and presentation)
• Passion for design, the arts, and the video-game/entertainment industry
• You're user-focused, passionate, scrappy, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do.
