Technical/Industrial Designer

Illumivation is a design and fabrication studio that creates larger than life props, marketing installations, trade show exhibits, and out-of-home advertising/transit sculptures. Our business is growing, and we are looking to hire another Technical/Industrial Designer to work out of our Chicago offices and shop.

This role’s primary responsibility is to create technical designs, renders, and production drawings for fabrication teams. Our designers need the creativity to translate client dreams into objects we can build in-budget and the ability to create shop drawings for elements made from wood, metal and foam.

The Technical/Industrial Designer will also be responsible for some bids/concept consultation visual rendering, CNC operation (experience preferred but will train), and working with producers to QC shop production of their drawings.

This is a full time salaried position at 44k/year with healthcare benefits and paid sick/vacation time. We’d like to hire someone with:

2-4 years experience in a design role

A degree in Industrial design, technical design, engineering, or other related field

CAD/3D mastery

Photoshop and Illustrator skills

Fabrication experience major plus

A passion for creative problem-solving

Experience working on a tight-knit team and/or under multiple project deadlines
