We need another designer!

Posted January 28, 2014 by Stephen Chuchel13 Comments

Hey! We’re looking to hire another graphic designer!

We want to hire someone who is a problem solver, a thinker, and a storyteller.

We want to hire someone that understands that advertising is storytelling, folk art, and applied philosophy, and embraces that.

We want to hire someone who wants to be challenged, and excel at what they do.

We want to hire someone that will fit into our work space – we are an advertising agency yes, but we are also a workshop in the noble tradition of blue-collar industry. This means things get messy sometimes, and that’s ok.


Here’s some of what you’ll do:

Execute creative
Develop consistency/style usage guidelines
Attend internal meetings
Self-motivated, directed research
Fabricate presentation boards to the highest OCD compliant standards

Preflight production art
Communicate with delivery agents such as printers, television stations, and outdoor media
Understand “Economy of Scale” for each campaign piece(s)
Wireframe websites and user interfaces

Version art assets
Track proofs and client feedback
Accurately track time and tasks in our Project Manager
Manage client approval with our Asset Manager

Ask questions, and stay intellectually curious about how things work and how they can work better





  1. A couple of people have had issues with the job form on our site. It’s working here so I’m not sure what’s going on – if it doesn’t seem to work for you, feel free to use our contact form at http://emrl.com/contact. Thanks.

  2. I hope you like my stuff. I really need a job. Thanks!

  3. I Look forward to hearing from your company.

  4. There seems to be a file limit on what you can upload. I had to use my text only resume since images drastically increased the PDF’s file size.

    Thank you for this opportunity to apply for this position. I look forward to hearing from your company.

    • You can’t get it taken off early but you can take steps to improve it. I read in an ailrcte online about a man who declared bankruptcy and managed to improve his credit within 2.5 years and was able to get a car loan. While the interest rate was high, he made every effort to pay it off quickly. Within 3.5 years, he had secured a fixed rate mortgage and was able to buy a home.So the moral to the story is that while you can’t get it to come off early, there are things you can do to improve you credit score. It’s also important that after you bankruptcy that you inspect your credit report. Make sure that all your debt is listed as being discharged by the bankruptcy. Things that are not listed as such needed to be disputed so that they reflect this or are removed.After your bankruptcy, a lot of people recommend that you get a secured credit card a credit card that is linked to a savings account where you deposit a certain amount of money and that money secures your card. This is a great way to build back your credit. Also, this card should become an unsecured card and the money in the savings account should be given back to you.If you have student loans (which are not discharged in bankruptcy), you can use those as a means of improving your credit by making steady payments.You have a lot of options, but you have to take your lumps, go through the bankruptcy and then work hard to rebuild your credit. Also, the next time around, make sure that you when you use your credit cards that you pay them off quickly and don’t use them unless you can pay them off. This will show that you are responsible with your credit and will improve your score faster.Hope this helps! I know how you feel I’ve been in the same boat!

  6. Added my Behance website and email updated.

    Not long ago I designed an advertisement that won an award for funniest ad in a skateboard magazine. When I received the award it was a wood burned skateboard deck with the words “FUNNIEST ADD”. I thought this was funnier then the ad itself.
