Job Description

We are a branded content agency. Our main goal is to ensure our brand partners are always part of the cultural conversation. We offer full-service marketing capabilities, with custom content and creative solutions across all our platforms and experiences, driving value for our partners and dedication with our fans. Long story short, we make phenomenal content wherever and whenever our partners want it.

Want the spirit of a start-up while working on some of the world's premiere entertainment brands? Want to wear jeans on more than just Fridays? Looking for a job that will not only make room for your side-hustles, but also encourage them? If so, this job could be for you.

At Velocity, we value diversity of thought, and we believe your hobbies and phenomenal viewpoints are just as meaningful as your previous work experience. We view the world not only from our offices (though the views are pretty sweet from our living rooms at the moment), but also via immersive experiences that encourage us, keep us at the forefront of the ever-changing cultural landscape, and, with any luck, make us better marketers.

As a member of the Velocity X team, the Graphic Designer is a full-time position who works closely under the Art Directors to build graphics for a wide variety of assignments, which include branding, social media, communications, presentations, industry ads, illustration, animation, video and events.

And it goes without saying that the Graphic Designer should be passionate about youth culture and whatever's going on in the zeitgeist.
