Design Lead - MATERNITY CONTRACT (1 Year)

  • Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Contract

Company Description

We are Citizen Relations. We are an earned-first creative agency, which means we come up with big ideas that actually earn people’s attention. And that starts with not just talking to audiences, but by doing something they connect with. Seems simple, but it’s harder than it looks. 

Our POV is simple. Consumers of all kinds have evolved. No longer can you just shove your message down their throat. You have to find common ground between people and your company and what you stand for. When you do it right, you earn their attention and actions and a changed perspective, behaviour or attitude. And this approach has worked, allowing us to get results for some of the biggest brands in the world - and win some awards along the way.


We are looking for an artful graphic designer with an attention to detail. A maker who enjoys creating new stuff! As a design lead you will work closely with our creative team and ensure that ideas become reality. The ideal candidate has their own ideas and doesn't just follow trends. You will also be overseeing the design output of the entire agency. So you’ll be expected to be organized, hungry, and really know your stuff. 


  • You will be required to make everything from logos and full brand identities to packaging to gig posters to experiential elements and support elements to our brand campaigns.

  • You are here to make the best stuff you are capable of making.

  • Provide graphic and digital media solutions to our internal team and clients.

  • Collaborate and coordinate with other team members.

  • Oversee the design product of the agency and distribute projects in an organized manner.

  • Engage and arrange freelancers when required.

  • Push, push, push.


  • Minimum 7 yrs of graphic design experience within an agency capacity

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills

  • You must be a team player and have a passion for what you do!

  • A classic education in the design fundamentals is mandatory

  • You must be cool and confident but assured yet open-minded!

As cliche as it sounds, we put our people first. We amplify our team through a culture of openness, personal growth, innovative strategy and tech, and a hunger to do amazing work.

Citizen Relations has over 200 citizens on our team, with offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Quebec City, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Singapore. Our affiliate network includes 40 cities in North America, and over 60 countries worldwide.
