About Human Ventures
Human Ventures is an early-stage venture studio based in New York City that backs & builds industry-changing businesses. We co-found companies with exceptional entrepreneurs, help build out their early teams & provide resources & connections in the critical beginning days.
On a daily basis you will:
- Work closely with Founders to synthesize their needs & inspirations into a designed experience - always creating a visual identity that is aligned with their vision, not just what looks good on the screen.
- Iterate on the visual + brand identity in the form of recommended typography, visual schemas, & colors. Youll develop tight design systems for the earliest stage products.
- Partner with later stage Founders & companies who are still housed at Human Ventures, & provide them with design assets.
- Collaborate daily with Founders & the product development team to iterate & make smart choices when every day counts.
Heres what you bring to excel with us:
- You love the earliest stage of product-building - you thrive on a set of wireframes & brand inspiration.
- Ability to translate a founders vision for a company into a brand & design that is defensible & unique to the company (NOT only your design preference)
- Ability to develop an organized workflow that enables you to always work on the most important projects in an environment with multiple projects happening at once.
- Skill to building core visual brand identity - color scheme, typography, web + mobile iconography (bonus if you are an illustrator, but not necessary)
- Skill to organize projects to share with others in a logical, organized way.
