Can You Believe It?! it's a Full-time job

Do you hate great design, collaborative coworkers, and creative autonomy? Then you'd really hate working as a Digital Art Director at Studio Simpatico in New York, NY, USA and should stop reading now. Seriously.


- Our name (Studio Simpatico) reflects the authentic and collaborative approach we take when working with our clients and each other.
- We’re a boutique studio made up of children of the internet.
- We’re overachievers that don’t need micromanagement. We regularly share rich, constructive, and caring feedback, without the ego and office politics. We don’t have time for that.
- Our designers went to art school (SVA, Parsons) and know their stuff when it comes to typography, grids, color theory, and layout. We’ve worked at a lot of places (Google, Apple, big agencies, small agencies) -- long enough to know we prefer a small studio environment.
- We believe that how you organize your file’s layers, and keeping measurements consistent matters.
- Our developers studied design. They’re intensely collaborative, and they share our understanding that precise implementation matters. We all see padding.
- We care about each other. Like, actually care.
- We’re self-aware about how comically organized we all are. We manage our own to do lists, and we all take part in managing our clients’ expectations. Our studio deliberately doesn’t hire project managers.
- We’re not afraid to admit it: We get bored, kinda easily. We love that every day in the life at Simpatico is not like any other day.
- We love our team. We love animals. We are not fans of Donald Trump.
- We loved our whiteboard-heavy studio space in the Garment District, but we’ve been remote since the world shut down. Our Slack channels stay buzzing with rapid fire project collaboration and pet photos.
- We have lives outside the office and don’t work weekends.

We’re looking for a visual creative who:
- Has a great portfolio
- Has experience in branding, web design, and possibly even digital product design
- Knows and dabbles in some HTML/CSS, but doesn’t feel comfortable writing production code
- Would thrive in the work environment we’ve outlined above
