Gelcomm is a Youth, and Family
Design Agency with expertise in
consumer packaged goods,
entertainment branding, and trend
research.

We work and play in Downtown Los Angeles, in the
historic Financial District, surrounded by creatives in
fashion, art, graphic design, technology, and hipsters from
all walks of life. We’ve also just launched a second office
in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, to participate in
the city’s vibrant design community and better serve our
clients in the Midwest and beyond.
Our work spans a broad range of market sectors from
food, beverage, personal care, health, and cannabis
branding.

The ideal candidate must have prior consumer packaged

package engineering. This position requires a portfolio of
package design experience.

Requirements: Ideal candidates will possess:

• Proficiency in consumer goods package design
(personal care, food, and beverage, wellness, toys)

• Excellent brand development experience (verbal and
visual platform experience, presentations, branding,
logos, and collateral)

• Experience in style guide creation (print to digital, color
theory, typography, icons/graphics, patterns, and product
development)

• A keen eye for strategic insight (industry, consumer
segments from pre-school to adult, global and hyper-local
market analysis)

• A portfolio containing package design examples at a
senior level, including an essential proficiency in a
mechanical file set up

• Strong problem-solving skills

• Ability to present both internal and external to the client

• Leadership qualities in mentoring junior creative staff
• High Proficiency in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and
Photoshop

• Passion for trend research and innovation

• Active in industry awareness and contribution, speaking,

communication from an accredited university beyond
vocational training.
