ABOUT FARMER’S FRIDGE
At Farmer’s Fridge, we believe it should be easy for everyone to get delicious, nutritious food in a hurry. We source the best ingredients we can find, and bring them to our kitchen in Chicago’s Fulton Market. Every night we chop, roast, mix, and shred everything by hand, creating tasty salads, meals, and snacks that we deliver daily to our growing network of citywide Fridges. Chances are good there’s a Fridge near you right now, stocked full of good stuff, waiting to serve you something tasty with a few taps of a touchscreen.

About the role
We’re looking for a creative and ambitious visual designer to join our rapidly growing Chicago based food-tech start up.
What you are:
A talented designer and innovative thinker. Someone who thrives in a fast pace environment. Good at taking creative direction and constructive feedback. You are constantly curious and are always on the look-out for the latest design trends. You geek out about typography. You cringe at poor letter spacing and oddly cropped photos. You have a passion for creating exceptional brand experiences. Beyond your creative skill set you are a kind and open-minded person who enjoys working in a diverse environment.
What you are not: Slow paced. Timid. Afraid of change and ambiguity.
About the team
The designer works alongside a highly passionate and accomplished team. You will report to the Creative Director, and work alongside the marketing team to support all marketing and branding efforts.
Be responsible for helping to translate our brand vision into beautiful and compelling digital and print assets. These assets span a wide range of marketing and brand collateral, including but not limited to event signage, environmental graphics, leave behinds, branded swag, ads, posters, email campaigns, infographics, presentations, and other various marketing-related materials. In addition to supporting the marketing team you will also work with the tech team to weave that brand vision into our digital eco system which includes our website, app, and custom user interface on our fridges.
You are excited to work in a start-up environment. We’re moving fast and need someone who can jump in and help take our creative efforts to the next level.
