Full Time
Walker & Company Brands, the maker of Bevel, is a consumer packaged goods company that is completely reinventing the way consumers learn about, purchase and enjoy health and beauty products. We’re starting with a focus on the $50 billion personal care segment. Personal care manufacturers and traditional retailers are neither building brands nor merchandising experiences which cater to the uniquely differentiated needs of black and latino consumers --- two of America’s fastest growing and most culturally influential demographic groups.

The Creative Director will lead with visuals and the verbal character of the brand, not only in omnichannel storytelling, but also in direct to consumer, packaging, retail signage and retailer sites. We are looking for a collaborative storyteller who can lead a project from start to finish. Define Bevel’s visual equity and collaborate with cross functional teams and external stakeholders. If you have strong production design skills and have no problem executing within an existing framework, join us!
