Graphic Designer - Grimsby
Compass Creative is searching for an experienced graphic designer to join our team.

Candidates will have several years of experience in a creative agency or in-house art department and will bring a fresh, clean design aesthetic to an informal, friendly, creative office environment. As well as mad design chops and interpersonal skills, ideal candidates will have an understanding of marketing, social media, web development, photography and video.

Our mission is to redeem the stories we tell in the marketplace. We value Truth, Beauty and Business Results!

We work with some awesome companies and help them understand who they are (truthfully), what they do (exactly), who they do it for (specifically) and why it matters (really). We help our clients discover their unique story. Then we help them "dress the part" and connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways.

If you’re a senior-level designer, if you love brand design, think in both words and pictures, and have what it takes to create memorable brands & enjoyable user experiences on the web and in other media… well… we want to hear from you.

Hours will typically be 8:00–5:00 but are flexible.
