Thrive's designers make up the beating heart of our organization and are a multidisciplinary collective of experts that create groundbreaking digital experiences, products, and brands—with expertise in UX, visual, motion, and brand design.

We're seeking a talented Visual Designer to help drive creative output across a range of innovative projects—a person with a strong pedigree in visual design, as well as demonstrated expertise in creating digital design systems, brand designs, and expression systems.

Thrive designers are adept at concepting and collaborating. They push the boundaries of visual language, ever mindful of not just how something looks, but how it feels and how it functions in the real world. Thrive designers are skilled in all aspects of the design process, including the translation and application of all brand guidelines across a range of blue-collar clients.

While Thrive's approach to visual design changes with every project, the principles that guide our design process remain steadfast. We believe in Design Thinking, which means you should too, and we use research and data to inform every design decision, from preliminary sketch to finished product.
