OpenIDEO is in search of a Design Fellow to join our San Francisco-based team.
The Design Fellow will work collaboratively, creatively and flexibly within our interdisciplinary team and in support of our clients and social innovators around the world. The ideal candidate has a strong foundation in graphic design and may have experience in UX/UI design, brand identity, print, digital, and illustration.

Being a Design Fellow at OpenIDEO means bringing your talent and personality to the table to serve as the design expert for our passionate, fast-moving team. You’ll have the opportunity to guide and develop our growing design capabilities in support of multiple projects, including our online Challenges, events and community initiatives.
Throughout, you will create a variety of consistent, quality assets ranging from presentation decks, toolkits to support innovators, graphics for communication channels, print assets, branding, web projects and more. You will be the shepherd for our visual brand identity and will work closely with many members of the team to visualize the complex processes and inspiring stories that arise from our work.
The Design Fellow will be a skilled visual communicator, adept at operating in a fast-paced environment and balancing client requests and team needs. You’ll have the opportunity to make your mark, become deeply embedded in a close-knit team, and design in support thousands of innovators worldwide.
To apply, please submit your resume, cover letter, and portfolio (or link to). Your portfolio should include at least 4 examples of work-related projects. Bonus if you include 2-3 projects you have worked on for fun. And toss in some design work that has recently inspired you.
