Graphic Design Consultant : GoodGuide

GoodGuide is building an information platform and suite of tools to inform consumers about the health, environmental, and social impacts of products and companies, and to empower them to take actions to improve their lives and the world around them. We are an innovative “for benefit” startup at the forefront of integrating science, technology, and consumer research to empower the public. We are funded by top-tier venture capitalists that share our interest in empowering consumers. We are located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART, the Transbay Terminal, and the Ferry Building.

Position: Graphic Design Consultant

We are looking for a Graphic Design Consultant to help us create the next version of our website and iPhone application interfaces. GoodGuide seeks to make complicated health, environmental, and social information accessible by and useful for consumers who are making purchasing decisions. We are looking for someone who is excited by combining information visualization, graphic and icon design, and page layout to achieve this goal.

Since work is on a contract basis, designers based in San Francisco, CA are a plus but not a requirement. However, some face-to-face design time sessions may be required.


Work with GoodGuide’s interaction design team and engineers to refine new layouts for key pages of the website and iPhone application.

Create iconography and other graphic elements to convey complex data visually.

Refine website interaction mockups into pixel-perfect graphics to be used in the website implementation.


Actions speak louder than words, so a strong portfolio of clean, simple, and usable graphic design projects is the most important consideration;

Experience with web graphic design required;

Experience with iPhone graphic design a plus;

Ability to work with cross-functional internal teams including research, engineering, product management, and business teams;

Understanding of information visualization techniques and best-practices.

GoodGuide is committed to building a culturally diverse team and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates. To apply please send your resume and portfolio to
