As a Designer at Redscout, you are fully immersed in the work—you drive our project work forward, gathering relevant inspiration, generating multiple ideas and designs that push the status quo and help drive change for our clients.
Working at Redscout—
At Redscout, we work with clients to define the future of their businesses and brands. We love diving into new categories and exploring the edges of culture, and working on problems that give us a window into how people think, work, and live. Scouts (that’s what we call each other) have high standards for quality and a strong sense of community. We value learning, diverse lived experiences, original perspectives, personal growth, and mutual support. We’re also entrepreneurial. This is not a place where you’ll always have a template to work from, but you will always have a team to turn to for advice, help, and guidance as you create solutions together.
Design at Redscout—
Design is one of Redscout’s three core disciplines: Client Services, Strategy, and Design. The Design team sets the quality and standards of the visual work Redscout produces, with a strong emphasis on branding, systems thinking, and digital design. Our practice is centered around:
-A multitude of perspectives:
We each bring our individual expertise, historical references, creativity, and personal points of view into foundational stages of brand development, anticipating potential opportunities or challenges that could occur once a concept is materialized from words into expression.
We work closely with strategists and client managers, and view our clients and consumers as partners, finding ways and means to identify their needs and aspirations.
We look at cultural trends, identify the behavioral shifts behind them, and reimagine their futures. The work we do encourages our clients to embrace bolder, bigger ideas, and decisions that will transform their business because they can see it and understand it.
