Senior Designer (NYC)


For more than two decades, Fathom Creative has been delivering strategic and tactical solutions to global communications agencies. We’re building a new design team in New York to work onsite at one of the top PR firms in the world, specifically to support their business development efforts. Maintaining their #1 position requires a fresh, innovative approach to everything we do.

You’d be joining a group of enthusiastic, hard-working individuals who would immediately give you their custom screen printed shirt off their back if you needed it. Like working in a silo? This isn’t your place. If you have trouble multitasking and meeting challenging deadlines, you’ll have a tough time here.

We’re looking for solution-oriented, drama-free, motivated team players who like the challenge of turning mundane content into drool-worthy eye candy and standard presentations into unrecognizable, award-winning “art on screen” experiences.

This is the Olympics and you’re up for the challenge.

  • Create, refresh and maintain multiple brands and skillfully apply them across a wide array of digital and print deliverables.
  • Design and execute TED-level client PowerPoint presentations and generate purpose-driven, creative concepts that inspire action
  • Collaborate with art director, project managers, and developers to define and implement innovative solutions for our clients
  • Execute all visual design stages from concept to launch, bringing fresh, efficient simplicity to complex content
  • Present your designs and sell your solutions to various stakeholders
  • Champion best practices and standards for visual design
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest design trends, techniques, and technologies
  • Ensure quality across all aspects of your assigned deliverables
  • Contribute to our positive, spirited culture and embrace our shared responsibility in maintaining this as a terrific place to work


  • Minimum 5 years of proven professional graphic design experience, preferably in an agency setting
  • Bachelor’s in Graphic Design, Visual Communication, Interaction Design, or similar major
  • Diverse portfolio demonstrating strength in visual design, branding, presentation design, infographic/data visualization, typography, color, and conceptual thinking
  • Mastery of relevant design tools, platforms, and software (Adobe Suite, Sketch, MS Office, etc.)
  • Ability to work on multiple projects and brands simultaneously
  • Ability to think and respond quickly while maintaining attention to detail
  • Pictionary skills so strong it’s basically a bloodbath. Karaoke skills so awful it sounds like comic sans for ears.
  • Expertise in video, animation, motion design and related software
  • Passion for emerging technologies, mobile platforms, and trends
  • UX/UI design skills, including site maps, wireframes, user flows and personas
  • Ability to build a website from scratch in WordPress
  • Proficiency in HTML, CSS, and jQuery
  • Chill. Fathom is a collaborative, open, and friendly agency. We’re looking for someone will be invested and excited to contribute to the future of Fathom.
  • Flexible. Because we are a small team, designers are responsible for many different types of jobs, big and small, for a variety of clients. The ideal candidate should feel comfortable jumping between many different projects whether it’s a brochure small nonprofit, branding an association, or creating a website from scratch for a corporate company.
  • Perfectionist. While we aim to make everything sparkle, at the end of the day, Fathom is in the business of visual communication and our clients count on us to deliver high-quality designs with precision and attention to detail.
  • Timely. Our designers are responsible for their projects and deadlines as much as our project managers are.
  • Competitive salary and bonuses commensurate with experience
  • Competitive benefits package including Medical, Vision, Dental, 401k, etc.
  • Flexible work/life policies and other cultural benefits of working for an independent, progressive company
