Graphic Designer (Full Time)

Your weeks are spent either looking back to when you were outside, or when you will go again. Time at a desk is for the sole purpose of funding your next adventure. Your heart is forever in the mountains and your soul is revitalized with one breath of that crisp air.

Who are you? You’ve been told you’re obsessed with Wes Anderson, but you consider it a compliment. When you shop, colors are more important than technical specs. Staged photos make you want to barf and leave you with the worst hangover headache of your life. You’d rather spend money on quality equipment than fancy clothes.

Sound about right? We get it--that's why we're all here--and if this resonated, then you should join us here at the Coop.
