Our ultimate goal is to help organizations tell their stories through engaging video, beautiful design, and fantastic web experiences that drive action while also building one of the best companies to work for in the Midwest!

We’re a small team with fun clients, big vision, and aspirations to stay small and hit above our weight class.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Delivering creative visuals from concept to completion.

  • Setting a blistering design pace on every project; casting vision, minding the details, and solving the work in a meaningful way

  • Contribute to creative meetings and overall team culture passionately

About You:

  • Technical Martial Arts (Jedi) Mastery – You're an expert with design software tools like Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and any other art program that brings your awesome work to life!

  • Creative Contributor – We don’t work in silos; our designers work together with our video producers, writers, account managers, and web guy to create the best client and team experience possible. There are no hand-offs around here.
