WTF is a digitally-native branding agency?

Got it. But why does that matter?

We believe that everything is branding. The emails you send, the code you write, the packaging people tear open. Everything. We also know that nowadays most things are digital. Not everything. But quite a bit. So we think that the folks helping to define why you exist and why consumers should give a shit, should be the same folks that bring that message to life, across channels.

Does that mean you only take on full-service engagements?

No. While much of what we do is help businesses go to market, we also work as specialists at times. Meaning, we take on projects building websites, shooting content, building campaigns, establishing voice & tone, etc.

Who do you typically like to work with?

We work with people that are doing something good for the world. Often, this means working directly with founders to help them bring their vision to life. Other times, it’s with select fortune 500 companies or organizations that challenge the status-quo. We started Zero in search of a better quality of life and value the time we spend making things with people. If we’re going to solve problems together, we might as well enjoy it.

Hmm sounds pretty cool, tbh. What services do you offer?

Nice, I need all of that. How much do you charge?

It depends on the level of the engagement, complexity, and deliverables - but our studio minimum is $80k.

But wait, I have more questions

Brand Strategist / Copywriter

Remote

2-4 Years Experience

Zero is a digitally native branding studio. We build brands for the digital world, with services ranging from brand strategy and naming, through visual identity, packaging, content creation, UX/UI and development. 

We’re looking for a Strategist to contribute to the branding, content creation, design, and creative technology efforts at the studio. 

Position Details:
Conceptualize the emotional “why” behind brands and how to express it across all creative mediums. Your specialty is written and verbal communication, but as a Strategist it’s imperative to think beyond your medium, developing a platform and brand world that is extendable across disciplines. Develop the persona, set the voice & tone, and provide thoughtful copy explorations that are actionable against brand goals, reflective of the target audience, and culturally aware. 

From naming to marketing email subject lines and global ad campaigns, you’re responsible for developing copy that speaks the brand’s language and offers a fresh new perspective within the brand’s industry. Whether developing the brand tone or working within a set of established guidelines, you are able to plug into the brand mindset and articulate it. Impeccable attention to detail, understanding and skill as it relates to grammar and spelling are required. Ability to modulate your voice to fit a variety of personas/brands is a must.

Day to Day Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the research & discovery phase through market research, audience interviews, and any additional tactics that add value
  • Develop holistic brand strategies that are unique to the market and genuine to the beliefs and vision of the brand
  • Develop presentations that clearly and effectively tell the story of our work, collaborate with the team on creating those presentations and present the work to our clients
  • Develop and name brands and products extending from the brand strategy 
  • Collaborate closely with UX and Visual Designers on brand applications such as packaging, website, emails, and other mediums to support the brand world
  • Work closely with PMs to define website language and a systematic approach to writing copy across medium to highly in-depth sites
  • Approach every project with a clear purpose and ensure all executions meet business and user goals


This position is flexible with full-time, contract-to-hire, & freelance candidates welcomed.
