Chicago, Illinois / DesignScout

Oct 5, 2016




We are DesignScouts: setting out on an everyday creative journey marked by equal parts strategy and imagination. We are a full-service design firm with a stalwart reputation for designing the logos, websites, and print campaigns that serve as stakes in the ground for successful visual identities. We spend our day trailblazing concepts for craft beer, artisanal food, active lifestyle, and luxury brands large and small.




You are ready for a boutique firm lifestyle. You want to contribute to the concept. You want more client interaction, more influence over your projects, more creative work, and a 40-hour work week (Scout's honor). You design slick, effective websites that fit within the context of today's web without being formulaic. You are an experienced designer with print and branding experience. You "take it and run." You are a genre-bending, nimble designer with a strong sense of style, type, composition, and history.




You have an expert understanding of modern design tools. You have a firm (and demonstrable) understanding of design both online and off. You get user interface. You thrive with a blank canvas and ooze strategy.

You have two years experience at a design firm.
