Full-Time Design Director

Morning Brew – Posted by lilymittman New York, New York, United States

Job Description

Hey there! We’re Morning Brew- a bunch of smart, dedicated people focused on disrupting and redefining the traditional business news landscape. Also, we’re nice and have great swag. We are looking for a Design Director to join our team.
While this position is based in New York City, office colocation will be contingent on stay-at-home orders; until then, all employees are working remotely.
It’s our goal to make the business world more engaging for the modern business leader. How? By giving our audience the news they need in a way they actually enjoy. Across newsletters, podcasts, social, and (soon) even more, we’re building something special.
Want in? Read on.
Overview
We are looking for a Design Director to lead the design team and the design vision for Morning Brew. You will establish the visual identity, design principles, and editorial aesthetic for the Morning Brew brand at large, and its 8+ content brands. You will manage a team of talented graphic designers and product designers who are focused on creating best-in-class content-led experiences for our audiences. Your team spans across product design, editorial, brand & marketing, and sales design. You have a passion for media and creative storytelling experiences and an interest to lead the design evolution at Morning Brew. This role sits in the Product team and reports to the VP, Product.
Here’s what you’ll be working on:
– Managing the Art Director (who manages graphic designers) and the Product Design Team (currently 5 people)
– Working with many different facets of design including product design, illustration, photography, branding, typography, etc.
– Bringing the Morning Brew editorial vision to life through best in class product design and visual design
– Codifying design principles for Morning Brew at an organizational level, and translating those to each editorial brand
– Supporting the day-to-day design asset creation process and creating new processes to improve cross-team and intra-team workflow efficiency
– Leading by example with inclusive, accessible product design
– Developing new visual identities for editorial brands
– Creating a component library in partnership with engineering team
– Collecting and integrating user research feedback into design decisions
– Establishing a photo editing and image selection practice for editorial teams
– Recruiting, hiring, and developing strong designers
What makes you qualified?
– 8+ years of experience in digital design, preferably including product design
– 3+ years of experience managing and mentoring designers
– Experience setting the design vision for new brands, with branding-related deliverables
– Demonstrable knowledge of the latest design trends and visual aesthetics.
– Bias for problem-solving, especially in an inclusive, psychologically-safe environment
– Ability to express your creative ideas clearly and concisely through thought-out rationale
– Strong working knowledge of Figma and Adobe XD
– Deeply collaborative, with strong verbal and written communication skills
– Insanely organized, with a keen attention to detail
– Excited to join a fast growing, continuously evolving company
What else are we looking for?
A person with some good ‘ol values! We take that pretty serious here and want to make sure that whoever joins the Morning Brew team, believes in that too. If you had a cup of coffee with our employees, you would see that we are:
  • Curious – We strive to learn every day through constant questioning and exploration.
  • Purposeful – We do everything with the highest level of thoughtfulness, preparation and focus.
  • Empathetic – We are good, genuine people who embrace others’ perspectives.
  • Challengers – We approach every day with an underdog mentality and are never complacent.
Perks:
While being surrounded by a bunch of cool people who look great in crewnecks is its own reward, we thought we’d sweeten the pot even more with some perks:
 
Annual Learning Credit: Want to learn something new? We’ll pay for it.
Unlimited Sick and Vacation Time: And trust us, unlimited means UNLIMITED.
Remote Work Optional: Work from home, work from the office, work from the moon, you decide.
401(k) Employer Match: Helping you be ready for the future in the present.
Premium Healthcare Partially Covered by Employer: Trying to make getting sick less awful.
Work From Home Stipends: Upgrade your home office on us!
Morning Brew is committed to building a diverse and inclusive team that’s representative of our audience.
