Marketing Designer

About us

Fohr was founded with the purpose of bringing together two groups of people who share a love for storytelling; creative brands and creative influencers.

We believe in taking care of our people, our products, and our profits - very specifically in that order. We constantly seek progress over perfection. We see failure as an opportunity to learn. We curse in the office, we play the music loud, and sometimes we drink whiskey before 5pm. We don't expect everyone to do this, but it is something that will not change.

We’re looking for a talented designer to join our small team. We’ve got ambitious plans so you’ll be a vital part of expanding our marketing efforts, improving our product, and refining the user experience. You will work closely with the marketing team, and be a significant contributor to all aspects of the design process from ideation to execution.

About the job

- You will work closely with the Director of Marketing to refine and improve our marketing design language and aesthetics.
- You will improve and maintain digital and print logo/branding materials, and help develop our branding/style guide to inform both marketing and development teams.
 - You will lead design critiques, gather & give feedback, and make informed decisions.
- You will own and manage a variety of projects: business one-pagers, presentation decks, social media assets, display ads, data visualizations, event signage, etc.
