Senior Graphic artist / WANTED for local Apparel sewing factory - art / media / design - job employment

City: New orleans
Date: 05 Jun 2018
Category: Art / Media / Design

We are looking for a full time graphic designer with experience in Illustrator and Photoshop.
We do large format sublimation printing on fabric and then we sew it into garments. We need someone who can design for retail apparel, textiles and sports team jerseys..

Some of the items that we make are yoga leggings, sublimation sports jerseys, fishing shirts and neck gaiters.
We also print a lot of t shirts for online retail. We are looking for someone who can think outside of the box, yet still meet deadlines on a very consistent basis. We need someone who can come up with amazing designs for retail, and will not give up when they run into a challenge.

After 18 years of being a screen printing business and online retail tshirt brand, we have pivoted to building the only sewing factory in Louisiana specializing in designing leggings and shirts across multiple markets (yoga, fishing, sports teams, etc). We are what's called a sublimation cut and sew operation, and have 3 retail brands that we are also developing.

We're looking for a motivated and experienced artist. They need to be very creative and organized in order to meet deadlines. We're looking for someone who can take direction from written or spoken ideas and convert them seamlessly into images, layouts and other designs. We have tons of examples of styles that we like, so giving direction is easy. We need someone who can understand our direction and run with it. We might share a mood board and say, "soak up this inspiration and design 5 awesome pairs of leggings".

We might ask you to dive down the rabbit hole of an obscure Tumblr account and come back with 5 amazing tshirt designs targeting a specific niche or customer demographic. Sometimes, the work will be simple vector mockups for baseball teams.

We work in a fast-paced environment, so the ideal artist will be able to hit the ground running and be somewhat independent. Applicants with experience leading creative teams and designing with other professionals will be given prime consideration. We don't have a big creative team, but we are looking to expand quickly. If you have experience putting teams together, this is your chance to build something amazing.

We are looking for an artist who has a grasp of retail ready design. We are looking for someone who can confidently design apparel for retail. An appreciation of vintage engraving, marbled paper, photography, and culture is a must. An open mind is a must. A desire to see people wearing your designs in public is a must.

We can't write everything that we are looking for in this short post. This is the dream job for the right person. If you think that you have all or part of what we are looking for, please contact us. We are presently a team of 5 people, and have been in business for over 17 years. We are on a mission to build an amazing apparel sewing factory for our brands on the northshore, and will be creating many, many jobs in the process. If you are an independent, professional artist with experience and are great with deadlines and accountability, we want to meet you.
