BRUNT Workwear

Design
North Reading, MA, USA
Posted on Wednesday, January 3, 2024

We’re leading the way in redefining the workwear category. Our mission is to engineer better boots and apparel for our country’s tradesmen and women by working directly with real workers to learn what they actually need to execute their jobs.

The BRUNT team is not only devoted to improving on the old workwear standards, but we’re also creating a community that tradesmen and women can call their own. From our weekly hangouts at the BRUNT Garage, to hosting events across the country, we’re all about getting boots on the ground and building something real with the BRUNT crew.

What You’ll Do:

This role will be accountable for the quality, strategy, and integrity of all creative deliverables from our website, to email, to packaging, in-store marketing, advertising and beyond.

While you’ll be a strategist and leader, this role will also over-index on doing/designing, so you must get energy from rolling up your sleeves and be part of the team of designers and copywriters on the development of captivating storytelling and content that builds brand awareness AND drives performance and product conversion across multiple channels.

You’re a creative thinker with the desire to challenge norms, push boundaries and explore new territory while respecting the integrity of the brand values. This is an opportunity to implement our holistic system to create an inspiring and recognizable brand, carrying it through in everything we do from now and for the next 5+ years.

Leadership & Team-Management:

  • Supervise team members at various levels providing feedback, guidance, and development opportunities with a commitment to leading by example
  • Review and approve materials developed by team members providing detailed and actionable feedback.
  • Ability to see the big picture, determine the right course of action for the group, delegate responsibility to the right people, allocate the right resources

What You Need to Succeed:

  • 10+ years progressive creative and digital marketing experience, design experience on the client or agency side, with emphasis on content creation and visual design.
  • 5+ years of supervisory and managerial experience
  • Ability to thrive in a fast paced and high growth environment
