Are you a well-seasoned designer with an innovative mind?
Founded in 2002, Ballistic Arts Media Studios is a full-service creative agency in Coquitlam, BC providing design, web development, and video production services to local and national clients in a variety of industries. Our designers work on diverse projects from brand logos to websites to expansive interactive presentation centres. To keep up with our growing business, we’re looking for an experienced Intermediate Graphic Designer to join our team!
As an Intermediate Graphic Designer, you’ll get to work alongside the talented folks on our design team to create amazing digital experiences through a thoughtful collaborative process! You’ll be responsible for taking part in our creative process from start to finish: collaborative brainstorming, producing wireframes, and creating design prototypes, mockups and assets. The work is fast-paced and challenging, promoting teamwork and individual growth. We work for a variety of different industries and clients, keeping the work diverse and interesting.
The position is for a graphic designer to work from our Coquitlam office- we are not looking to hire people who work remotely.
We’re a small team (there’s less than 30 of us!) that likes to have fun; our outgoing crew loves thoughtful conversations over lunch, Smash Bros. tournaments, and occasionally hitting local breweries together after work. We’re also always looking for ways to give back, whether it’s spending an afternoon cleaning up the creek near our building, or holding a workshop with kids from a nearby school!
We offer a supportive work environment with a great company culture. We are dedicated to the success of our projects, clients, and team members.
