Anyway, as a member of the design team, you’ll help inform how we communicate the brand of Discord to the world and support the creative development of all of our marketing needs.

  • Solid vector illustration skills.
  • Strong fundamental design skills, including knowledge of typography, composition, and color.

  • Up to date with current design technologies and trends.
  • Can provide multiple creative solutions to problems.
  • Great attention to detail, while having open mind for creativity.
  • Brand guideline creation experience a bonus.
  • Deep understanding of sarcasm.
