Johnny Cupcakes Hiring a Designer

For this Massachusetts based position, read below!

The boutique clothing brand Johnny Cupcakes is currently looking for a second in-house designer for our Massachusetts based headquarters. After starting out of the trunk of a car in 2001, Johnny Cupcakes has grown to be an exclusive, international brand with "faux-bakeries" in Boston, London and Los Angeles. Over the past 10 years, an inspiring community of collectors has formed, prompting customers to camp outside the stores for up to two weeks for limited edition product releases. Since design is the focal point of all our products we are looking for someone to help us push the image of this brand even further.

This is a great opportunity for a designer looking to work with a small team on a variety of projects from planning and conceptualizing to manufacturing and marketing to the experience in the actual storefront.

You will be assisting our lead designer on projects and products for the brand ranging from shirt design, hats, posters, stickers, pins, toys, labels, packages, signage, collaborations and web graphics. Most of our designs have a strong emphasis on illustration and typography. We will need someone who is skilled in illustration, simple yet bold graphics, and be able to apply that aesthetic throughout a range of products.

• 2-3 years experience of graphic design, freelance or in an agency. BA in Graphic Design is a plus.
• Proficient in Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop. Other programs are a plus.
• Strong illustration and typography skills
• An understanding of fashion and current trends
• A good sense of humor
• good sense of pop cultural with diverse interest to pull inspiration from
• Attention to detail
• Ability to sketch ideas
• Ability to handle multiple projects at once
• Transportation (car, train, bike, etc) to our Weymouth, MA office, 20 minutes outside of Boston
