All our clients and projects at Matter Unlimited are purpose-driven, which means you’ll not only work on bringing to life great ideas, but you’ll also be contributing to work that makes a positive impact in the world. See examples of our past and present work on our site, ranging from The Obama Foundation to our films for Merck for Mothers to help curb the global maternal mortality crisis: www.matterunlimited.com

  • Help bring to life ideas and concepts with the creative team

  • Make necessary updates to a variety of digital platforms for clients and agency alike

  • Work with lead graphic designer to design and produce one original project

  • Assist with other graphic design duties as needed


About You

You are a digitally-savvy creative person with a strong desire to help improve how brands and companies contribute to the world. You are detail-oriented, self-motivated, and can execute tasks in a fast-paced environment. You have a strong portfolio of work that shows insightful, integrated-media ideas and well-executed design thinking. And you care about giving brands a purpose and helping them reevaluate how they’re contributing to society.


You Should Be:
