Oxman is a hybrid Design and R&D company that fuses design, technology, and biology to invent multi-scale products and environments. The fusion of disciplines within our work opens previously impossible opportunities within each domain—allowing design to inspire science and science to inspire design.

At Oxman, we question dominant modes of design that have divorced us from Nature by prioritizing humanity above all else (human-centric design). Although it is design that has caused this rift, we believe that design also offers the greatest opportunity to heal it.

We propose a nature-centric approach that delivers design solutions by, for, and with the natural world, while advancing humanity. In this pursuit, we reject all forms of segregation and instead call for a radical synergy between human-made and Nature-grown environments.

This approach demands that we design across scales for systems-level impact. We consider every designed construct a whole system of heterogeneous and complex interrelations—not isolated objects—that are intrinsically connected to their environments. In doing so, we open ourselves up to moving beyond mere maintenance toward the advancement of nature.


Oxman is seeking a graphic designer to join an all-star interdisciplinary team of deep thinkers and brilliant makers. This person embodies a passion for effective, original, and high-impact visual communication of ideas and information. In addition to the ability to represent scientific systems, the candidate should have experience with the organization of complex datasets as well as with the creation and art direction of editorial and brand design. They should demonstrate an extremely minimal, clean, and precise touch and an ability to develop a signature graphical style that aligns with the Oxman philosophy.

Successful applicants embody stellar technical skills in their respective field(s), can self-direct, and demonstrate a unique “language” of computing (software) / fabricating (hardware) / growing (wetware), or a combination thereof. They have produced and can present a prolific corpus of digital and/or physical expressions rooted in process-driven design; exemplify a passion for systems-based thinking with a wide range of potential applications for their work; personify an appreciation for science; and seek synergy between biology and technology in research, practice, or their unity. Industry experience combined with the ability to lead research, produce striking work, and maintain intellectual and aesthetic “freshness” is desirable.

Core responsibilities:

  • develop the Oxman visual language and brand identity
  • create systems, organizational frameworks, and visualizations for large, complex datasets
  • design graphics for digital and web media, including presentations, technical documents, and the company website
  • design graphics for physical and print media, including exhibitions and books
  • lead art direction of editorial design and brand campaigns, including social media
  • actively partner with a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including biologists, engineers, and other designers, across scientific and design pursuits
  • communicate ideas, work, and progress clearly, including by engaging in team meetings, presentations, and other creative communication outlets

Qualifications and competencies:

  • minimum three years of professional experience in a design studio
  • portfolio of highly successful work from conceptualization to commercialization, demonstrating out-of-the-box thinking and stellar taste in design
  • mastery of relevant design tools (e.g., Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop; Figma)
  • experience in branding, editorial design, data visualization
  • experience in digital and print production and optimizing graphics for multiple channels
  • illustration, sketching, 3D modeling, rendering, UI/UX and/or creative coding skills are a plus
  • photo editing and/or video editing skills are a plus
  • ability to thrive in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment
  • excellent project management skills, independence, self-motivation, organizational skills, and attention to detail
  • strong commitment to the team; maintains positive working relationships with diverse people, including internal team and external partners
  • embodies ethics and integrity in all work with impeccable scientific integrity, respecting both company and broader community policies in all conduct
