About The Role
WeWork is looking for a senior environmental graphic designer with 3-5 years experience to help conceive, define and execute environmental graphics and art installations for our WeWork interior spaces as a member of the New York City-based Art & Graphics (@wearelunchmoney) and interior design teams.
You will be assisting in the design and production of everything from wayfinding graphics, to hand painted murals, to custom wallpaper patterns and neon signage. Part of the work will be installation-based. Strong hands-on art and design skills are required - i.e. painting, drawing, or other means of creating design in physical spaces, as well as using tools, ladders, etc. You will assist in managing relationships with vendors and manufacturers, ensuring the ordering and organization of materials and samples, and interfacing with freelancers and artists. You must also have experience in traditional graphic design.
WeWork design is a global team composed of experienced and talented designers, engineers and architects. We are dedicated to creating exceptional co-working spaces where our members will work better together. With locations on almost all continents, this is a great opportunity to be part of one of the fastest growing startups in the world.
