Flying Embers is a company that was founded in Ojai, California by a team of entrepreneurs, winemakers, musicians and surfers driven to create the best tasting, highest quality and most innovative organic alcohol drinks in the world. Flying Embers got its name when they banded together during the Thomas Fires to protect everything they had been working to build. The experience gave them the name and their drive towards a purpose beyond the brews. They established the Embers Foundation to support firefighters and first responders with 1% of all sales going directly towards Rewild, Respond and Recover efforts. We take intense pride in pushing the limits of innovation in our brewing and in building our biz. Today, Flying Embers is a national brand with strong local roots in Ventura, California.

We are in search of a Graphic Designer to add to our Ventura based creative marketing team. The ideal graphic designer should move seamlessly through the Adobe creative cloud, surfing between graphic design, animation, video, and photography to craft and create with the same buzz and passion we pour into our brews. You should get just as jazzed about creating a social post, as a t-shirt, a tap room menu as an ad in an industry rag, a wrapped semi-truck as a product label that might never be launched. This is an exciting opportunity for a creative designer whose passion is amplified and enhanced by working on a team of likeminded individuals.
