Illustrator Job Posting
Hi! You’ve never heard of us because we were in STEALTH MODE until a couple months ago. Just minding our own business, building a game-changing safety training platform, when the global pandemic threw our future into uncertainty.
In order to save our butts and do our part to help flatten the curve, we pivoted our training content from fires to viruses. The team hustled hard over the last few weeks and we’ve built a germ-awareness training game that we plan to offer to essential service organizations for free (c’mon, we’re good people, not predators). As we prepare to launch our new product and greet the world we need some help in these areas:
Venn.Agency needs support on a half-time basis with:
Illustration: We’re looking for someone who can communicate complex ideas visually. Someone who’ll cut our word counts in half and help people really SEE what we’re about.
Brand identity: We have 2 companies and 3 training tools whose nascent look and feel are a WIP. We need someone who’ll join us in our creative sandbox and work with us to develop our visual identity.
Here's the deal:
Venn.Agency is looking for an Illustrator/Designer to help us change the world from the comfort of their own home. AKA Sweatpants HQ.

Potential for ongoing employment if the fit is good
Whomst we seek has VISION and strong PERSONAL AESTHETIC, loves BIG IDEAS and is PASSIONATE about their work. This person is comfortable being highly collaborative throughout the creative process. This person might be more than one person! We’re a very open minded bunch.
The right person for the job is:

Please note: We will not be a typical client, and we’re not going to send you away with a brief and wait for you to start blasting out deliverables. We’re all about being in process together and sharing ideas in a visual brainstorm way, defining the final outcome together. It may not be the normal process you’re used to but, if you feel like trying something different, you might just love working with us!
