MORTGAGE DESIGN IS COOL. You read that right. We promise. But maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves… Movement is looking for a graphic designer to help us carry out the following creative challenge: Go too far. We have a mandate to move people. To make great, un-safe, outside-of-the-box content for a mortgage company… a bank… multiple schools… exciting events. You get the point. We challenge our creatives to go too far. To make us reign you in. If you’re tired of bloated bureaucracies and timid approvers holding you back, you will absolutely love it here. We’re in search of a designer who knows how to walk the tightrope between innovation and discipline. Someone who will be a quick study of our brand guidelines but who will dazzle us with what can be done within those guidelines. Someone who loves design and keeps up with what’s going on in the design world (and we mean “world” literally). Someone who straightens picture frames in other people’s houses, has nightmares about lowercase o’s that are too far from capital W’s, and refuses to attend any event advertised in Comic Sans. You’ll get a variety of assignments here that will immerse you in many different areas of design as you support our brand, video, social, and digital teams. We predict that your Dribble, Behance or Squarespace or wherever you show the graphic design work you’re most proud of will be transformed. We are NOT your average mortgage company. We move fast. Our structure is flat instead of layered. Our execs wear T-shirts instead of suits. Almost half of the company’s profits go to a non-profit foundation to serve the underserved. We believe in our work and have a lot of fun doing it. See? Mortgage design can be cool. Read on if you agree!
