Job Description

Yuga Labs, the creator of The Bored Ape Yacht Club, is looking to hire a full-time Brand Designer to join our team.

We’re looking for someone with the chops to build and maintain the BAYC visual brand across a range of design needs, in particular across physical goods.

In this role, you’ll be originating (more often) and providing feedback on (less often) designs of Bored Ape Yacht Club physical merch and collectibles, as well as participating in collaborations for similar items with some of the biggest brands in the world.

You’ll be helping to move these items from concept stage through to final execution, so you should be comfortable working with suppliers and fulfillment specialists, providing notes on physical samples, etc.

We’re looking for someone who is:
-Proficient in all Adobe software
-Comfortable creating illustrations for graphic t-shirts
-Comfortable creating/adjusting tech packs and sending suppliers/factories comments on samples
-Experienced in developing a cohesive visual language across a brand
-Tasteful – sensibility for craft, composition, imagery, typography, color . . . We need someone who stays on top of current streetwear and cultural trends

While the immediate day-to-day of this role would be spearheading Yuga Labs’ forays into physical goods, we want this person to be a source of creative inspiration at the company. There’s no shortage of cool shit to do and make here.
