Are you curious about the deeper implications of buying a Harley? Do you ever wonder why most grocery stores are so painful and what it is about a Whole Foods that just “works”? Have you ever scrutinized an Oreo cookies package and thought, how could I make this better?
These are the kinds of problems we tackle everyday at Shook Kelley, a design and strategy firm that works with some of the world’s top retail companies and quite a few as-yet unknown ones, too. Our approach is comprehensive, from design to production, from understanding the customer to creating a total experience. You’ll be doing a lot more than just producing graphic design that looks good, you’ll be in the middle of a multi-disciplinary operation where you can learn about branding, business and consumer insights. For us, it’s about design that works, design that feels right and design that creates value.
In our 19 years of experience, we’ve created environments, brand identities and new strategic design formats for a wide range of clients, from food retailers and restaurants, to leisure destinations and urban developments. Right now our LA office is small, but growing rapidly. As our company expands and we keep landing increasingly fascinating projects, we’re always looking to work with new people who are driven, creative, thoughtful and curious.
Individual will have at least 15 years experience in the design profession. He/she must exhibit natural leadership/entrepreneurial skills, an affinity for growing business and a high standard for design and design philosophy. Ability to self-start and work collaboratively in a unique, small office environment will be paramount to success.
A BFA in Graphic Design is preferred, with previous experience either in-house or at a design firm. A background in environmental design is preferred, but not required. Mastery of InDesign, PhotoShop and Illustrator are mandatory.
