At Grizzly, we partner with Adventurous Brands to build a more purposeful, people-first world. As we grow, we’re looking for a Senior Designer to pioneer exceptional work, lead our design team, and elevate Grizzly’s design.

As Grizzly’s Senior Designer, you will champion creative problem-solving and ensure every deliverable achieves the strategic, relevant and people-centric goal at hand. You’ll provide thought leadership, introduce innovative ideas and original concepts, and produce eye-catching work. While executing the end-to-end design process, you will lead Grizzly team members in creating beautiful and effective identity, packaging, collateral, web, and campaign designs.

To succeed in this role, you must be a student of the work and a master at your craft. Most importantly, you are a skilled leader who sees the inherent potential of your team and knows how to coach them towards producing their best work. If you’re obsessive about good design and looking to create a world-class team, then we want to talk to you.

About You:

  • You’re a born leader and mentor. Under your leadership, design teams produce exceptional work that push creative boundaries.

  • You’re a detective and a problem solver, uncovering the needs of clients and coming up with creative solutions to meet and exceed those needs.

  • You have experience mentoring teams towards creative breakthroughs and providing thoughtful, constructive feedback.

  • You identify the unique talents in each team member and are an active participant in their development; strengthening both the team and the work.

  • You have a proven track record for conceptualizing and producing effective design solutions.

  • You’re adaptable and innovative in your approach to creative problem solving - able to switch gears as needed while maintaining focus on achieving the goals of the project.

  • You’re an intelligent designer who incorporates user research and client feedback to maximize the effectiveness of your projects.

  • You value a great idea no matter where it comes from and value cross-functional collaboration from non-design team members and contributors.

  • You’re a visual storyteller who champions the direct connection between brand and business outcomes, and is able to reinforce the importance of that evolution to your clients.

  • You’re a pioneer who pushes towards cutting-edge innovation; constantly seeking new tools, techniques and methodologies to achieve bold, unique visual experiences across all mediums.

  • You track current design trends and stay ahead of the curve, bringing a freshness to the work.

  • You can identify what is important vs urgent and are able to prioritize work while staying organized, meticulous, and motivated.

  • You are a master at your craft and an expert in design technologies (i.e. Photoshop, Sketch, Illustrator, InDesign, and Edge Suite).

  • You deliver consistently exceptional work on time and within budget.


  • 5-7 years of visual design experience working with B2B and B2C organizations.

  • 3-6 years working at an agency.

  • Strong digital design skills.

  • Well developed layout and typography skills (with knowledge of visual hierarchies).

  • Experience leading and managing teams.

  • Proven experience building brand systems (identity and/or web).

  • Excellent presentation skills that encompass clear, compelling communications.

  • Strong conceptual and brainstorming skills.

  • Expert with industry-standard design tools (Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, and Sketch).
