You get to work on big stuff. Toolhouse is a digital marketing agency with big clients, which means you’ll be working on big projects. Under the direction of the Senior Design Team, you’ll conceptualize and create engaging designs for websites, email campaigns, mobile apps, animations, and videos. You’ll be expected to balance function and form, turn the complex into simple, and articulate your decisions along the way.
You get to work with awesome peeps. We don’t mean to toot our own horns,but we like what we do and we’re good at it. You’ll be joining a tight-knit team of designers, developers and out-of-the-box thinkers with a common goal: create uncommon solutions and have fun doing it. Working closely with UX and IA designers on one side and developers on the other, you’ll be counted on to bridge the two with compelling creative.
You get to live in Bellingham, Washington. We just remodeled an old cannery on Bellingham Bay and kept the kitsch while adding some kick.

Fish? Dine out? Listen to live music? So do we. And that’s just on Wednesday. Bellingham is only 45 minutes from Vancouver, BC and 90 minutes from Seattle.
