  • Examples of your work that help us to understand your experience and capabilities. It can be images of any project in which you were involved - school or personal. We don't want to see full reports, but we do need to see that you know how to work through solving a problem and can present the process and solution clearly. This includes defining the problem (why is this product important? what makes it different?), brainstorming, generating concepts (please include sketches; they don't need to be pretty, they just need to be clear), making mock-ups and models, and presenting the final design.

To safeguard your work, please do not send original materials.

Why hard copies? It makes our process more efficient, and it shows that you were motivated enough to send a package and paid attention to directions and details. You may include websites showing your work, but please print and include significant items you'd like us to see.

Please address these materials to:

Graphic Designer
San Francisco studio

Do you cringe at PowerPoint presentations full of words, bullet points, stock photography and icons pulled straight from The Noun Project? Are you passionate about visual storytelling and ready to demonstrate your mastery?

At LUNAR, we are pioneering the next generation of business communication and need your help. We don’t just create beautiful graphics for clients, we help them find their unique voice and tell their story with rich, visual content. We know that concise, smart graphic expression makes all the difference, and are seeking meticulous designers with serious graphic chops to bring new imaginative energy to the table.

We are experts at making products come to life in peoples’ heads and hearts. We work fluidly between 2D and 3D media hand-in-hand across a variety of disciplines to craft the best possible result for our clients. We work to deliver integrated products, packaging, retail presence, and brand communications that speak a consistent, enticing message to delight today’s scrutinizing consumers.

About You: You’ve taken the time to learn about us, and you don’t just want to work for any award-winning design firm; you want to work for LUNAR. You understand the value of design and brand within a business context and are excited about LUNAR’s budding partnership with McKinsey & Company. 

Your aesthetic and storytelling sensibility is developed and ahead of the rest—with the unique ability to work in several styles. You’re serious about your work, but you don’t take yourself too seriously. Never complacent, you recognize the difference between good and great and are able to manage team dynamics, client expectations, and tight timelines to deliver excellence.

You thrive in ambiguous, experimental environments, bringing positive energy and generative ideas. Collaborative by nature, you have strong verbal and visual communication skills, and are ready to jump in head first, prepared to learn fast from trial and error. You know when to ask questions, yet also when to act independently and take initiative.

Lastly, you’ve put together a portfolio of work that wows our design team, engineers, and everyone in between.

Qualifications:

  • 1-3 years of professional work experience in graphic design (or equivalent)

  • Ability to quickly translate verbal ideas into visual concepts, refine your designs and deliver production-ready artwork
  • Fluent in Adobe Creative Suite and PowerPoint
  • Interest in digital photography/videography and strong editing skills
  • Confidence in your design approach and unique point of view
