Freelance Designer

Remote or London, UK

Description

Hi, we’re Monolith. We provide everything one would expect from a financial platform, built using decentralised technology. There’s a wallet to securely store assets, a payment card that can be used online or in shops and a mobile app to make everything accessible to regular users.

We believe in self-sovereignty: we don’t control our user’s assets. Monolith is amongst the first practical authentic use-cases on the Ethereum blockchain.

We’re a high-performance team of around 25 people. Most of us are based around London, but we also have colleagues in mainland Europe. We have freedom and responsibility, a culture that encourages original thinking, offers ownership and embraces knowledge sharing. We have big plans to grow!

Due to the pandemic we’re working entirely remotely. When it’s safe to do so we’re looking forward to folks collaborating in person again — but remote is totally cool too!

Requirements

We’re looking for a freelance designer to read between the lines of Monolith’s brand and product, to create a universally adaptable visual narrative. Our ideal designer is someone who can quickly establish fluency in our brand and style – replicating in the first instance, and evolving in the next. Someone who can translate our otherworldly motif to continue to explore the fringe, yet understand the approachability of our brand for those new to the space or wary of its misconceptions.

We’ll give you a significant amount of freedom to interpret our vision, giving you the opportunity to breathe life into our projects. In a world where people increasingly consume visually, you’ll be the Stanley Kubrick to our Arthur C. Clarke (plus points if you understand that reference!)

Role responsibilities:

  • Social announcement collateral
  • Long form content collateral
  • Projects that seemingly make no sense!

Required skills & experience:

  • Indesign / Photoshop / Lightroom
  • Video editing
  • Experience in iconography / fonts
  • Experience in print (media / presentations / case studies)
  • Digital ad collateral creation
  • Press kit creation
  • Display/Visual creation
  • The ability to adapt on the fly
  • Willingness to abstract from a set path to keep offering fresh and at times different ideas
  • Push limits and boundaries, be willing to take a leap!

Bonus points for:

  • Experience in photography / videography
  • A background in display design / product design
  • UX/UI experience
  • HTML experience
  • A fluency in languages other than English
  • Experience with the payments industry, such as with a credit card loyalty programme

If all this sounds exciting..….send us a portfolio! We’d love to see what you can create against a rigid brief, as well as your work that’s come out of a flexible interpretation of needs. The goal is not to see your best/worst, but the breadth of what you offer to fill needs we have.We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
