Work with Folly Enterprises

job: designer

Love wine? Love visual design?

We are looking for a highly motivated, intelligent, and creative professional to join our design team!

Folly Enterprises are the people behind the Wine Folly (winefolly.com) and Global Wine Database (gwdb.io) brands. We’re focused on producing compelling user experiences and products that have a significant impact on the wine industry.

The mission of Designer is to communicate with images that words can't describe. Your job will be to produce diagrams, infographics, illustrations, or motion graphics to simplify complex topics in wine. Growth is accomplished through contributing to our ever-expanding asset library and improving visual communication methods through iterative testing of new ideas.

The right person for this role has design in their DNA; it's easier for them to communicate with design and illustration than it is with words. It's important this individual has experience working in a production setting where asset management skills are a necessity.


Core responsibilities include:

  • Being a cool and driven human being
  • Help produce amazing visual assets
  • Work with wine experts to develop graphics for ongoing new articles on Wine Folly
  • Work with our CDO to develop and execute design templates for production work
  • Work with the Marketing Manager to create graphics for upcoming sales, ads, and other visual assets
  • Export assets from library to formats that are useable in social channels

Requirements:

  • Adobe Suite including Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, and InDesign
  • Clear understanding of color correction / color grading
  • Able to show illustrative skills and less reliance on design libraries
  • Motion Graphics experience is not required, but a major plus
  • Excellent organization and communication skills

This person will show their ability to produce great visual work that communicates effectively.
