To the col­lec­tive aston­ish­ment of our­selves, as well as every­one who knows us, Fer­al con­tin­ues to be suc­cess­ful. With all our gam­bling debts paid and the lien on Timmy’s car final­ly removed, we are poised for a tru­ly spe­cial 2020

As such, we are look­ing to hire a web design­er imme­di­ate­ly. This is less a choice than a neces­si­ty. While I con­sid­er myself a Microsoft Paint pow­er user and real­ly, the pre­em­i­nent expert in the robust design tools avail­able FORFREE with every copy of Win­dows XP and above, I have been giv­en an ulti­ma­tum by our devel­op­ers Tim­my and Thi­a­go: hire a real” design­er or be thrown out on my head. Such is the life of a true cre­ative iconoclast.

A real” design­er, so I’m told, uses mod­ern design tools like Sketch or Adobe XD (nev­er heard of em), under­stands the design to devel­op­ment work­flow, and takes pride in the orga­ni­za­tion and struc­ture of their design files. 

I don’t see the prob­lem here, do you?

As some­one who reg­u­lar­ly wire­frames with noth­ing but a pointy stick and a sandy beach as my can­vas, I know there’s more than one way to skin a cat. Tools aside, we’re look­ing for some­one who brings cre­ativ­i­ty, inge­nu­ity, and orig­i­nal­i­ty to their dig­i­tal design work. We will work togeth­er to estab­lish a cre­ative direc­tion based on each of our clients’ spe­cif­ic needs. Once estab­lished, it will be your job to start knock­ing out tem­plates like a BO$$.

Fer­al has some unique orga­ni­za­tion­al qual­i­ties that you might be inter­est­ed in. For starters, we are a ful­ly remote stu­dio. You nev­er have to change out of your paja­mas or even emerge from bed to work for us. On top of that, you will be work­ing with a small, tight-knit team of three. We don’t take any­thing too seri­ous­ly, and we are espe­cial­ly keen on cre­at­ing an envi­ron­ment where every­one feels com­fort­able to be who they are. We prize inde­pen­dence and originality.

Each year we take a trip some­where inter­est­ing. Last year it was Brazil. This year it’s Tokyo. I’d also like to start rent­ing out an Airbnb in a fun place a cou­ple times a year that any­one can work from should they choose. Maybe Switzer­land. Maybe Orlan­do. A boy can dream. 

Here are the specifics:

Job type: Free­lance

Com­mit­ment:25 – 30 hours a week on aver­age, with some down­time here and there

Pay: Name your price!

Skills required:

You are a real” design­er, what­ev­er that means

You have true, god-giv­en tal­ent. If you don’t believe in god, excep­tion­al” tal­ent is sufficient

At least one eye for detail, prefer­ably two

Abil­i­ty to read and write in Eng­lish or Gaelic

Pro­fi­cien­cy in Sketch, XD, or Photoshop

Famil­iar­i­ty with HTML/CSS/JS and web devel­op­ment a plus

If you are inter­est­ed in this job, please send your port­fo­lio along with a note explain­ing what kind of predica­ment you have found your­self in that would make you want to work for us to sterling@​weareferal.​com with the sub­ject JOB.” Emails only! Port­fo­lios are a must. Port­fo­lios on flop­py disks are even better.
