visual designer

This position has been filled. Thank you for your interest.

We’re looking for a designer to join our creative team as a strategic contributor, responsible for design across everything we do in support of our digital services organization and clients’ goals. And since we’re focused on outcomes, this means you’ll be directly affecting how Fathom creative services are represented in prospective and current client experiences—elevating design across projects, from consultation to execution, one-off landing pages to full-funnel campaign support.


As a visual designer on our creative team, few days are alike. But one thing is consistent: your critical role in refining and advancing creative throughout Fathom. Our visual designers are expected to:

  • Understand and implement design best practices throughout:
    • Information hierarchy 
    • Color theory and accessibility
    • User experience in layout and organization
    • Clearly articulated calls to action
  • Be curious and raise the bar: always push teammates and clients to explore different and better solutions (design and implementation), methods (production and distribution) and thought processes
  • Imagine, design, and extend assets that support the digital strategies we craft for our clients:
    • Content strategy—including in-piece visual assets, charts, infographics, case studies, and interactive experiences
    • Promotion strategy—including social assets, email campaigns, and partner marketing efforts that directly support or influence all owned, earned, and paid media initiatives
    • Website strategy—including site mapping and navigation structures, wireframing and UX, design concept and production, development hand-off and support, post-launch support and optimization
  • Influence marketing strategy: beautiful and smart design aesthetics in support of our clients’ marketing goals: audience engagement, user experience, conversion optimization, etc.
  • Support ad hoc initiatives across the business:
    • Deck and portfolio production and support
    • Content recommendations and optimization
    • Design audits and quality assurance
    • General design training/support for fellow Fathomers
    • Collaboration with marketing team on internal work
  • Express awareness of and appreciation for:
    • File organization and naming conventions
    • Pitch support and presentation ability (internal and external communication, written and oral)
    • Giving and receiving constructive feedback


If this sounds like an opportunity you’re interested in, note the following requirements as you apply:

  • Bachelor’s degree and 2-4 years of professional design experience
  • Portfolio of work that displays an ability to turn an idea/concept into a visual piece and extend that concept across multiple touchpoints
  • Technical skills and experience with a variety of software, including Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
  • Understanding of industry trends in creative tools, UX, and information architecture; plus, as technology evolves, the ability to adapt and learn
  • Creative collaboration: An eye for design is important, and so is the ability to process feedback and explain design elements in the context of our implementation and distribution strategies—without getting technical
  • The ability to lead a creative process from initial concept, through brainstorms and briefs, to design concepts, delivered work, and presentation
  • Excellence in execution: have a bias for action, a commitment to execution, and attention to detail
  • Attentiveness to deadlines and pacing: understanding that creatives work at different paces, deadlines and time-based execution are still imperative to the success of our solutions and client relationships
  • Organization: well-organized to manage a variety of projects; flexible to address important projects that arise
  • Problem solving: love for a good challenge and the ability to solve them with compelling design


Some individuals are better qualified than others. While the absence of the following skills isn’t a deal breaker, their presence will certainly help your case:

  • Creating, implementing, and maintaining brand identity, messaging, and standards
  • Development: html, css, WordPress knowledge
  • ADA Compliance and accessibility standards
  • Audio: planning, capturing and editing audio
  • Video: planning, capturing and editing video
