Designer / Jr. Art Director


We left the big agency scene to create an agency with a conscience that tells the world what brands stand for. We focus on brand strategy, storytelling, design, and consumer engagement experiences. We’re a nationally award winning agency with offices in Portland, OR and Milwaukee, WI. And yes, we do all the things that other creative agencies do - drink out of mason jars, adorn our walls with faux stag heads, and occasionally communicate via typewriters and sketch books just to spice things up.

Manifesto is seeking to add a Designer / Junior Art Director to our creative team. We’re looking for someone with a strong visual style who’s ready to roll up their sleeves and get dirty. As a Designer / Junior Art Director, you will collaborate with other creative team members—and agency staff—to develop big ideas into powerful visual expressions.

Quite simply, we’re looking for a proactive, creative individual with strong conceptual chops and the ability to articulate ideas visually through design. Also, it is important that you enjoy playing—but are not too good at—ping pong.
