Job Description

MKG is looking for a talented and versatile Mid-level Graphic Designer to join our Design team.

The Graphic Designer will work both independently and collaboratively (alongside both 2D and 3D designers) at varying capacities: leading projects individually, leading projects in partnership with a teammate or supporting portions of projects a teammate is leading.

- Work directly with vendors and partners to see work through production phase (ex: printing companies, developers)
