Help us bring consumer brands into the real world through the fusion of smart 3D design and vibrant culture making for environments. Our expertise ranges from creating pop-up shops and retail spaces to designing the human and digital interactions that fill them.

    • Fixture design

    • Applied technology

    Ideal Candidate

    • Your portfolio reflects your innate design sense and how you look beyond the assignment or client ask to solve the problem.
    • Some agency experience or major retailer background is a plus.
    • You’re interested in designing fixtures and illustrating physical environments, and open to tackling other forms of design, including print, websites, and emerging technologies.
    • You are as comfortable with team collaboration as explaining your design solutions in client presentations.
    • You are a 3D artist that has experience (and interest) in 3D rendering, virtual reality, animation, and motion graphics.
    • Attention to detail in aesthetic composition and technical implementation is your modus operandi.
    • An ability to work under tight deadlines, manage multiple tasks, and quickly learn how to produce design ideas describes you to a T.

    • Mastery of relevant graphic design and 3D modeling software — Adobe CS (a must) including InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator; Maya; 3D Studio Max; Rhino; Maxwell; and Unity, to name a few.
    • Able to travel approximately one night per month for client presentations.
    • Ability to work independently and remotely to meet deadlines.
