About the job
Comparable titles: Social Media Content Designer, Marketing Designer, Motion Graphic Designer, Digital Designer, Visual Content Designer, Art Director, Animation Designer.
Dream in 9:16? Thrive in a collaborative team environment? Love making attention-grabbing, animated social media creative assets?
Want to work with a team that values all of those things, and most of all, you?
Um, hi. When can you start?
A bit on us: Sculpt helps leading B2B brands use social media to reach their customers, inspire their advocates, and close more deals.
A bit on you: You’ve been mastering your craft long enough to quickly say “what if we tried” for a plethora of client scenarios. You’re agile, self-aware, collaborative, and original. There’s an organized method to your madness. You’re a hoarder of great ideas, and a trier of new things. You believe in the power of brand cohesion but aren’t afraid to color outside the lines. You know a click isn’t just a metric, it’s a human with intent, so you get to know your audience before opening up Creative Cloud.
A bit on our clients: Protected under NDA, they include global tech companies, big B2B brands, and the cutest mandarin brand in the country.
A bit on Sculpt Designers: Some agencies hand social media managers a Canva account and call it their design team. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but…not here.)
At Sculpt, our Designers work collaboratively with strategists, Engagement Managers, and content managers to take ideas from plan to publish. Your role — production — sits right in the middle of that process. You conceive, remix, and experiment to make deliverables that drive results—be it engagement, new customers, or an elevated brand position. As social media-focused design/visual content designer, you ensure a standard of excellence on every creative deliverable leaving our shop, no matter how small.
