Senior Designer

Sunnyvale

Duarte is looking for graphic designers who want to put the skills they’re most proud of into making great visual presentations, graphics, and media work. You’ll be joining an agency that has been dedicated to being the leader of this space for 25 years, helping great speakers move audiences around the world, and executive teams from industries as diverse as tech, consumer goods, entertainment, media, financial services, and healthcare tell transformative stories. We dissect complex material, digest information and visual story challenges, and make the best visuals and narratives for audiences around the world to see.

If you believe in these things…

  • Working collaboratively to make the team more successful
  • Being recognized for the best of what you bring and recognizing the best of what others bring
  • An environment where we support each other to get things done
  • People listen, even if the message you’re delivering isn’t an easy one—and working to making tangible improvements
  • Investing in yourself and others to grow
  • The value of working on projects that move people and influence change in the world… while not every project falls in that category, we strive to pass such opportunities to designers that aspire to work on those projects

… and want to be in an environment where people work together to make this a reality, keep reading.

You’d be a great candidate if you hit many of these traits below:

  • Your portfolio speaks for itself
  • Adept at shifting gears between the whiteboard to your sketch book to Adobe CS
  • Live a streamlined workflow between CS apps while being well-versed in Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Visual problem solver—you dissect complex information to simplify and abstract it for easier audience digestion
  • Process thinker—addresses design challenges and can clearly articulate a step-by-step approach for coming up with a solution
  • Comfortable in both the lead seat and supporting seat for different projects as needed
  • You don’t mind rolling up your sleeves to get into the work because you know that there’s a time to design and there’s a time to build—both being equally important to create great work
  • Asks questions until the next steps are absolutely clear in their mind’s eye
  • Communicates well to listen and understand client and stakeholder needs to make the project successful
  • Finds or helps others find solutions to challenges without waiting or asking for permission first
  • You hold yourself accountable before you hold others accountable
  • Holds themselves and works with others to do right, with transparency and honest intent
  • Have worked in a world where design is seen as communication rather than fine art
  • Enjoy guiding and teaching others as much as doing
  • You see life as continuous learning
  • Bonus if you’re into print design, interactive tablet-based information/interactive design, or motion graphics
  • Big bonus if you’re a mastermind at PowerPoint, but if you’re not, your visual problem solving skills is what will make your designs successful at Duarte and we’ll train you on the deployment platforms
