Sr. Graphic Designer


Hello and welcome to DAYBREAKER. We are a global morning dance community of 500K+ and growing and we wake up and dance in the most iconic locations around the world. While the city sleeps, we break the day ☀️ with energy and intention with a community of adventure-seekers, mischief makers, and collective joy enthusiasts.

WHAT WE DO

Our bread and butter are morning dance and wellness events in iconic spaces (daybreaker.com), and in 2020 we launched a dance event series on livestream reaching 250k+ attendees through Daybreaker LIVE (Daybreaker.com/live), and launched the first ever membership platform to practice joy: Daybreaker+.

We are a substance-free community and are reimagining how humans socialize (in the morning / without alcohol or drugs).

We are experience designers, creatives, storytellers and community architects with a results-oriented team and are set on building a lasting movement that continues to support local communities for years to come.

You may have also seen us on the Oprah x WW tour in 2020 opening every stop of her sold out arena tour right before the pandemic. Peep our 2020 Recap Video here: https://vimeo.com/517331331
