Ten Stories


We're hiring a....Graphic Designer

Graphic Designer

Classification: Non-exempt

Reports to: Creative Director

Location: San Diego

Ten Stories is looking for a graphic designer to assist us in designing and preparing assets for use in video projects.  Much of what we design is animated or put in motion for video, thus many of our assets call to be created and prepared in Adobe Illustrator. Designers with a strong grasp of Ai and the use of its vector design tools are most valuable.  Strong knowledge of layout, typography, color and other essential design aspects is also important as we may need a designer to provide original designs/concepts/assets of their own in order to support the creative goals of a given project. Most of the time, designers will work closely with the Art Director and/or Creative Director who will help in formulating or providing direction. This role is not a remote position and  calls for people who can work and be present in our studio office for the majority of their time on an assignment.
