Senior Visual Designer

As a Senior Visual Designer for Dorai Home, you’ll be responsible for digital creative work to support the brand across all touchpoints. You have a strong understanding of direct-to-consumer brands and the ability to align with the foundations of a brand guide while bringing your own creative ideas to the table. You’ll be responsible for making sure the creative is on-brand, on-strategy, and compelling to target audiences. You’re comfortable working in a startup environment and collaborating with other graphic designers and a brand director.

You’ll be collaborating with and taking direction from the Brand Director to create web, email, print media, paid ads, social media, packaging, and creating content for future new channels. You’ll bring your creative eye to our content by contributing to mood boards and updating/maintaining brand guidelines. The ideal candidate will have design experience in Shopify and other website platforms, and have a basic knowledge of coding in order to effectively communicate with developers or install and modify apps on Shopify. It’s important that this candidate has a strong understanding of user experience design and optimizing for conversion as a best practice.

You’ll work closely with the design and marketing team to help maintain the look and feel of the brand. This role will allow for growth and influence Dorai Homes’ evolutions within a rapidly growing D2C environment. Bonus if you have an eye for beautiful product design, enthusiasm for sustainability, and passion for interior design.

About the Environment: Dorai Home is a growing D2C brand located in Utah that creates thoughtfully designed housewares made of eco-friendly materials that dry instantly. Take a look @doraihome on Instagram.
