Stone Ward is a small but mighty, 38-year-old creative agency fit for someone who is looking to pursue a career in design with a high-performing team. Our Chicago office (conveniently located in River North) is seeking a full-time Designer. The ideal candidate is highly self-motivated, positive and passionate about doing great work. This person will work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment of creativity and learning.

Stone Ward projects include: social media, print, digital experiences, motion graphics, branding & identity, packaging, branded environments, retail displays and everything in-between. Clients include U.S. Soccer Federation (including the Men’s and Women’s National Teams competing in the 2022 and 2023 FIFA World Cups), Snap-on Tools, No Barriers USA, National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), Westrock Coffee and many other recognizable brands. Our small, creative office environment feels less “office-like” and more like a great place to spend the day with friends. We work in-office Monday and Tuesday and remotely for the rest of the week. We utilize daily virtual check-ins to stay in touch on remote days.
