About the Team

The Harry’s Design Team is responsible for elevating the physical expression of all Harry's packaging, retail displays and web presence, while continually improving our workflow. We maintain clean and polished work, to push our brand to stand out within the world of industrial design, consumer packaging and retail store design. We keep the customer at the core of all creative objectives, working hand-in-hand with Retail, Brand Marketing and DTC teams 

About the Role

We have a great opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic Photo Retouch Artist to join the Harry’s Design team. The Photo Retoucher will be primarily responsible for completing digital use retouching requests in a timely manner and will play a key role in ensuring that all images meet the company’s standards of quality, color consistency and overall brand aesthetic.

The work is predominantly product shots in RGB for digital use but some experience with skin retouching is desirable for shots which include models and body parts. CMYK experience is also a plus for assisting with photos used in printed displays and product packaging.

  • Organize and maintain a library of sample images which can be used for color reference from project to project
  • Keep work files organized and systematically structured and labeled for future repurposing
  • Understand and adhere to current best practices in color management in order to maintain the highest standards of Harry’s Imagery across all platforms
  • Keep abreast of software upgrades and current trends in retouching and suggest ways to continually streamline and improve workflow
  • Work with inDesign and Illustrator files to modify type, line art and logos on existing product shots and create realistic mockups of products still in development.
  • Upload final images into our DAM system and tagging appropriate Metadata to make images available and easily searchable across the company

What you’ll need:

  • 3-5 years experience in retouching with emphasis on web imagery
  • BFA/BA in Photography, Graphic Design or Media preferred
  • Strong retouching, color correcting skills with keen eye for detail, quality, color and consistency
  • Expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (specifically: Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge) and working knowledge of Illustrator and InDesign
  • Ability to use Capture One to manage multiple photoshoots and process RAW files
  • Basic knowledge of RGB, CMYK, Pantone matching systems, studio color management, color profiling, proofing
  •  Experience replacing type on existing imagery using line art
  • Ability to work with art directors and creatives to understand expectations as well as communicate retouching needs, scheduling and any issues that arise
  • Ability to handle concurrent deadlines and numerous projects simultaneously

Here's who you'll work with:

  • You’ll be an integral part of the Design Team, reporting to the Imaging Director who is in charge of color management printing and prepress, proofing, providing spectral data for qualifying molded components, in house photography and retouching for all packaging and in store displays
  • You’ll work closely with these cross-functional teams: Design, Brand Marketing, Retail, Strategy, Flamingo’s Brand Team, etc.

  • Color management and workflow for printing processes across multiple suppliers
  • Proofing and maintenance of proofing system

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.


Senior Associate, Creative Projects

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.


Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.
