Converse Senior Color Designer

Converse Senior Color Designer

Boston | Massachusetts | United States

Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We're a company ready for change and that's who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that's why we hire individuals. So we're speaking the same language.

Design, Converse I, Converse

Art School Finally Pays Off

That art school word 'aesthetic' comes in handy again. The look and feel of Converse gets funneled through this crew. From Events to Online to Retail to Photography to Messaging, Brand Design is the artistic hand on the color wheel. If you're looking for a motley band of artists and thinkers, then look no further. We all know what "aesthetic" means, too. We just don't use it because it's cheesy.
Description

Become a part of the Converse Team!

Converse does more than create the most iconic and well-loved sneakers in the world. Born in sports and celebrated by culture, it is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream, and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders, and visionaries. At Converse, it's about each person bringing their authentic self, skills, and passion to serve the daring spirit of youth.

For Converse, everything begins and ends with the consumer.
