Job Description

Do you like the rush of putting together pre-sale pitch presentations or RFP submissions partnered with top-notch Digital Strategists and Design teams? Do you swoon over publication design and relish 80+ page documents that flex your typography and image-making skills? Can you transform tables of data into inviting visuals for analysts and CMO’s alike? We want to meet you.

We are a part of the Promotion and Loyalty Solutions arm of Merkle, a dentsu company. Our team was known as HelloWorld before our acquisition by Merkle in 2018. We are looking for a strong typography and presentation-focused designer. Our team is expanding as we continue to collaborate with CXM teams within dentsu.

You must be a strategic, visual storyteller with strong presentation, typography, and data visualization skills. Our high-profile deliverables include concept pitches, consulting/trend reports, infographics, KPI visualizations/dashboards, and product marketing materials highlighting our capabilities and case studies. 

We believe PowerPoint is just as much an empty canvas as InDesign. Setting type in PPT and leveraging a mix of assets built-in Adobe, we create next-level marketing materials that continue to impress our clients and challenge the misnomer that PowerPoint is not for designers. If you agree, we want to hear from you! 

Interested candidates, please submit your resume and your digital portfolio when you apply (portfolio MUST be included for consideration).
