Designer/Art Director

Overview

The Harvey Agency is a full-service consumer experience and creative agency based in Baltimore. For more than three decades, we've worked with global, national, and local brands that have threaded through society's cultural fabric. From CoverGirl to Stanley Black&Decker to McCormick Spices, Harvey has punched above its weight (and always above the belt) in heavy-hitting categories, including wellness and beauty, food and beverage, and hospitality and restaurants.

We are looking for a graphic designer with one foot in traditional, one foot in digital — a hand in campaign development and one in branding would make you the Twister champion here. You would be responsible for developing/assisting in the development of concepts, advertising, web design, and more. You’ll work alongside design, studio production, accounts, and perhaps even a new business suit or two.

Most importantly, you respect the craft and the people you do it with.

You must have a passion and reverence for creative and strategic design — the fundamentals, the process, the trends, the outliers, and the steps we take every day to make our past selves insanely jealous. If you're a clock-puncher, there are plenty of client-side departments that would love to have you. But if you never stop chasing answers, never turn the lights out on the right side of your brain, let's roll together.

Salary: Up to $105,000 depending on track record and impact.
