Tesser, an award-winning, San Francisco-based brand strategy and design firm, is looking to find a contract draftsperson/designer who is skilled at either VectorWorks or Revit and can work for 40 hours/week, on-site for 6-8 weeks.
Our ideal candidate is experienced with at least one of the major architectural focused 3D/2D applications (e.g. VectorWorks Architect, Revit, ArchiCAD, etc; highly experienced AutoCAD users will also be considered). We are a tight-knit, hard-working agency with exciting national-level brand imaging projects specifically focused in consumer goods and restaurant/retail design. We design the next generation of stores for national and global blue-chip clients, like Wendy’s, Chili’s, Ben & Jerry’s, Musco Family Olive Company, and KFC.
You have played a successful role at past agencies or architecture firms, either full-time or as a contractor, creating technical, design intent drawings using drafting software. You have 3-5 years experience creating both interior and exterior 3D renderings in a professional setting, preferably for large, national retail or restaurant concepts, and you understand the production, codification and notation of drawing packages. You have a keen eye for details and strong overall design sense. You are knowledgeable about building materials and have contributed to/handled material selection in the past. Your background may include commercial or residential architecture or interior design. You are comfortable using a variety of design programs for three dimensional sketching and color-rendering, from Photoshop to Illustrator to 3D architectural modeling software (VectorWorks and/or Revit required). You are a self-starter, extremely detail-oriented and maintain a professional demeanor throughout the entire design/production process. You have a BFA or BS in Interior Design, Interior Architecture, Industrial Design or Architecture. A background in architecture and/or the ability to draw freehand would be big pluses.
