Design Jobs

We dream about pixels and walk to the tune of Roy-Gee-Biv. We use words like saturation, opacity, and hue. We don’t go anywhere without our Pantone swatch book, and actually use a legit, non-pirated version of Adobe Photoshop. Indeed, you can buy this program. Here’s the skinny on the CI Design Department: we are top-notch. Picture a spacious office with a team of 22: designers, illustrators, photographers, and video producer. Spoil yourself with countless colors, muy expensivo cameras with flashy parts, and team-building activities to express your creative side. When we’re not coloring by numbers or numbering by colors, you will find us always creating new catalogs, aiding new product development with band, box, and illustration creation, and feverishly designing web graphics, monthly newsletters, product videos, space ads, package inserts, web page layouts, brand logos, and so much more.
