About Designerds

Designerds is a full service creative agency that provides services to some of the world's largest brands, including Amazon, Walmart, Airbnb, Square, and more. We offer our clients both project based services and long-term supplemental support.

Our longer-term offering allows our clients to access full-time design support every day, and we are able to scale this coverage rapidly when needed. It also lets our designers gain a breadth of experience working with top brands across a variety of projects.

 

As a Designerd, you'll join a team of passionate individuals including creative and art directors, designers, project managers, copywriters, and marketing experts.

In either setting, you'll always have the full support of your Designerds colleagues — we collaborate daily and are always on hand to help you manage your time and workload, develop as a designer, and have a blast doing it.

In fact, we value staying connected despite working remotely. Designerds provides plenty of opportunities to build community and foster teamwork. As part of the team, you'll share your experiences with other designers, learn from theirs, and take part in educational and mentorship programs. You'll refine your skills and learn new tools as our industry evolves.
