Communication Designer - Instagram

New York, NY

The Brand Design Team is the heart and hand of how we express Instagram design internally and externally. We focus on three major areas: brand expression, internal design culture and storytelling. Our key outputs are the @design account, branded artifacts, signature spaces, and brand systems. We work cross-functionally between multiple teams as well as outside agencies and vendors. The Communications Designer will help us deliver on our mission by extending the brand expression system across digital, printed and environmental applications. The ideal candidate has the ability to execute in a variety of visual styles, can articulate design decisions and iterate quickly. The designer has the ability to work independently but is deeply collaborative with creative leads, art directors, and content designers. You'll need to be fluent in the fundamentals of design with a portfolio that showcases this expertise. You'll cover the design spectrum–from quick, rough strategic ideation to polished final deliverables–we'll look for work that thinks big and gets attention, but also follows a conceptual thread down to the smallest details. Candidates should have broad experience working on a variety of projects with multiple partners and on tight timelines.
