Designer - Milwaukee-Based
At Tuna Traffic, our Designers work with the industry’s latest tools and techniques to design and prepare creative graphical solutions for clients' print and digital media needs.
Working in small cross-functional teams with our clients, we employ an Agile methodology to focus our work and deliver an unsurpassed creative outcome. This means moving fast, efficiently - like a Tuna (which is of course where we get our name) - through the creative process, to take designs from concept to prototype, and ultimately to launch.
It also means having a constant feedback loop for clients and team members to review progress and ensure projects/designs remain on track.
- Develop and articulate complex design concepts to others so they can understand your vision, and give appropriate critiques (and kudos – we get a lot of these).
- Produce designs across a broad range of industries and mediums. (These include print, digital and environmental graphics, with an emphasis on branding, email marketing, and other print mediums.)
- Bring designs to life with client style guidelines, responsive design, and tools such as Creative Cloud, CSS3 and HTML5.
- Apply basic principles of inbound and digital marketing, SEO and user (UX/UI) driven design.
- Provide and support customer needs on an ongoing basis via email, phone, or in person.
