Communication Designer | Toronto, ON

TROUT + TAYLOR CAREERS


Infographics, presentations, document design. If you love taking a brand and building out its story, then this role is for you. You are a communication whiz that understands the importance of information hierarchy. As Trout + Taylor’s communication designer, you’ll be the one to take our client’s brand and build out their assets for the world to see, leaving a lasting and radical impression. You are obsessed with the details and eager to learn. Taking artistic direction from our Creative Director (she’s nice, we promise), you’ll create digital and print assets that communicate the brand’s message (from business cards to tshirts to presentations - and yes, that sometimes means powerpoint - and everything in between).  You’ll work to consistently crank out genius deliverables, meet deadlines and solve design problems with thoughtful solutions.
