About SYPartners

SYPartners is a consulting firm that focuses on transformation.


Using the tools of strategy and design, we work alongside CEOs, leaders, and their executive teams to design a better future for their organizations—particularly in times of great change. The animating idea that drives us is our belief that organizations designed for both humanity and performance create unprecedented impact. We partner with leaders in organizations that have the courage and rigor to pursue both as equally essential and mutually reinforcing. And we seek to design our own organization in alignment with this idea, as well.

SYPartners was founded in 1994. The company is headquartered in New York City with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Abu Dhabi, and is a founding member of kyu, a collective of best-in-class creative firms.

The Role  

One part visionary and one part maker, designers at SYP channel deep curiosity and stellar design expertise to create futures that don’t yet exist. Their contributions bring both inspiration and clarity to our work, whether designing a powerful experience, a compelling narrative, or a mission that drives people to act. 

In partnership with Strategists, Program Managers, and UX Designers, Designers are responsible for bringing to life the experiences and tools that lead our clients (and sometimes their customers) through a journey of discovery, learning, and transformation.  

Our work spans all media. This means that no designer at SYP works exclusively in Print, Digital, or Exhibition design, but will apply—and build!—their skills throughout all three.  

Candidate Profile

  • You have the innate ability to understand people’s needs and experiences, and communicate those insights through a variety of form factors (print, website, presentation, exhibition, film, etc.).
  • You are curious about the challenges impacting business and society today, and are passionate about the impact of your work beyond a final deliverable.
  • You are a natural communicator. Whether through words, sketches, or prototypes, you share your ideas in a way that inspires others and builds belief.
  • You are a motivated self-starter and comfortable with highly collaborative team environments (this is not an asynchronous and autonomous contributor role).

The work you’ll do

  • As a Designer, you will collaborate with a team to deliver impactful work for clients and will assume ownership of various aspects of projects. You will apply your collaborative skills to build relationships with teams across disciplines and with clients.
  • As a member of a cross-disciplinary team, you will reach across disciplines and contribute to the whole project, while also ensuring projects are completed with high quality design aesthetics (typography, photography, motion, composition, color, and hierarchy).
  • As a design team member, you will be mentored by Creative Directors and partner with other designers to create visual and experiential systems across a project

Qualifications

  • 2-4 years of experience at an agency, design studio or relevant organization
  • Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design Environmental/Exhibition Design, Architecture, Industrial Design, Interior Design, or related field preferred
  • Experience in highly collaborative, team environments. ​​
  • Fluency in Adobe Creative Suite, Google Drive and Powerpoint/Keynote
  • Experience working with interaction design tools like Figma, ReadyMag, Adobe XD, Squarespace, WordPress, Miro or other industry tools is a plus

SYPartners Commitment to Diversity

At SYPartners, we are committed to the work of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in our own organization and for the leaders and clients we partner with. Our vision of the future—one in which organizations are designed to create conditions for human flourishing—demands that we continually work to become a more diverse and inclusive organization ourselves.

 

We are committed to working with and designing for people of every race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, physical ability or attribute, religion, national origin, or political belief. We recognize this commitment requires continual learning, reflection, and imagination.
