Spherical is seeking an Illustrator to develop production assets (including, but not limited to an icon library, infographics, perspective illustrations, and UI components) for a suite of tools supporting climate resilience in Los Angeles. We are seeking a style that lends itself to revealing the hidden dynamics of living systems (ecologically rooted while also enchanted with possibility). The style should be able to incorporate watercolor shading and digital overlays. The ideal illustrator will be able to digitize any physical illustrations so that the team can manipulate vector files into motion graphics and animated scenes. This position is remote.
