Emergent Method

Location: Baton Rouge, LA

Emergent Method is a Louisiana-based management consulting firm focused on helping companies and organizations innovate, grow, improve their performance, and achieve their missions. Our work spans public, private, and nonprofit sectors, with a full client list available on our website at emergentmethod .com/clients. We opened our doors in 2012, and in 2017, we were honored as Company of the Year by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report and Junior Achievement, a recognizable benchmark of growth – and we seek the same measures of continuous improvement for the clients we serve. By definition, we are a team dedicated to our clients as they transform, come into being, or become prominent – as they emerge – by supporting organizational growth through systematic planning and action.

At Emergent Method, we consider the quality of our deliverables and communications to be a key differentiator in how we serve our clients. A big part of this is due to how much we value and prioritize design. We are seeking a graphic design consultant who can play a key role in helping us tell better stories through digital and print visualization, make complicated information clear and usable for a variety of audiences, and get people excited about our work and the work of our clients. Given the breadth and variety of Emergent Method's clients and projects, our team members tend to be prepared to change hats and perform new or different types of work at any given moment, and while graphic design will be a focus for this person, we might also ask you to help us develop a proposal, participate in an outreach effort, or plan a tailgate.
The value our team members provide for our clients is no different from what we expect of each other internally: to always be thinking of how we can be better, how we can grow, and how we can be a great place to work. We are looking for someone who works hard and enjoys both web and print design, someone who enjoys collaboration and is constantly seeking improvement for themselves and our own firm. We value the contribution each Emergent Method employee makes to our culture, and we’ve also been known to have a little fun from time to time.
While we are looking for a candidate who can be flexible and play a number of roles, we are also looking for them to be able to execute the following responsibilities to a high standard of excellence:
- Work with teammates and client to structure, format, and design compelling, meaningful web and print deliverables from concept (research, sketches, wireframes) to completion, which are a pleasure to consume and easy to use
- Think strategically about branding and designing visual communications systems. This means they are able to take a step back and carefully consider client needs, identify and define problems, seek input from various audiences and stakeholders, and plan and execute creative solutions in response to what they’ve learned. Strategic design starts with empathy and is informed from all angles – not just aesthetics (though aesthetics are important!)
- Plan and facilitate meetings, both internally and with clients, that focus on and guide collaborators through the process of planning and producing communications and/or strong brands
- Provide subject matter expertise around visual design, user experience, and branding
- Develop visual assets in a variety of formats for client projects, including but not limited to:
printed materials such as posters, flyers, signage, and handouts
multi-page strategic plans
brand identity and logos
websites and landing pages
email templates
infographics and maps
document templates and presentations
social media ads, headers and other forms of digital marketing
Microsoft Word and PowerPoint templates
- Work with teammates to produce stand-out proposals on behalf of Emergent Method
- Maintain ability to balance both a high standard of quality and speed in productivity
- Able to receive creative feedback from design team and clients with ease and sustain a desire to learn
- Collaborate with teammates to maintain, improve, and expand Emergent Method brand and promotional materials, including our website, marketing collateral, stationery and business cards, templates, and social media
- Look for and pursue business development opportunities and build relationships
- Keep up with trends in technology and design to help keep our firm and our practices ahead of the curve
- Provide feedback on communications and contribute otherwise in minor roles on a variety of projects


As with all team members, this person will be expected to strive to build strong internal and external relationships, support others, enhance company culture, and represent the Emergent Method brand and core values both internally and externally.
Ideally, this person will have a degree and three or more years of experience in graphic design (web and print), visual marketing and communications, or a related field, but we invite you to prove to us that these pre-requisites should not be required. Candidates should have a solid understanding of layout, typography, color and other design principles, and have strong communication skills with the ability to backup design decisions. The ideal candidate will also have a working knowledge of HTML and CSS with the ability to translate flat, visual mockups into functioning, cross-browser compliant, responsive mockups. Practical experience creating websites using content management systems such as Craft, Wordpress, or other comparable platforms is also a plus.
The ideal candidate must be comfortable working with Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator) as well as Microsoft Office products, and must show experience and willingness to work with a variety of supplemental applications for areas such as project management, social media management, and collaboration.

We offer a flexible, fun (and mostly amusing) environment where each team member is presented with the opportunity to create their own success by challenging themselves, learning new skills and contributing in huge ways to exciting projects. We trust our teammates and believe in their talents. That’s why we’ve seen the success we have – we’re just as serious about developing our team and fostering a supportive, encouraging environment as we are about doing quality work for our clients. You’ll catch us running the roads of Baton Rouge together, having monthly happy hours, throwing pretty great office parties and events, and planning a variety of after-work get-togethers because we actually enjoy being around each other. We’re a fast-paced, multi-faceted consulting firm without the formality – and we’re pretty serious about not being serious. Aside from all of this, we are happy to offer the following benefits to our team:
- Great salary and bonus program
- Comprehensive healthcare benefits
- Top-of-the-line tools such as Apple computers and monitors for our designers
- Flexible work hours
- Professional development opportunities

Candidates should submit a cover letter, résumé, portfolio, and three references. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Emergent Method is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate against employees or applicants for employment on any legally recognized basis or any protected class under federal, state, or local law. Compensation for this position will be commensurate with experience.
