What You’re Looking For

You live and breathe marketing and brand. You seek a high level of autonomy but still want the benefit of working within a great design team. You are passionate about building a global brand presence through consistent execution. You care about the words on the page. You know how to translate customers’ unique needs in order to tailor your designs effectively. You understand that the difference between good design and great design is the last 1%. You’re not afraid to raise your hand when you see something wrong, and it pains you to see sloppily-done work. You’re comfortable seeking out the answers to your questions through ad-hoc conversations and you’re not afraid to get technical. You have a passion for staying on the cusp of what’s next in design and technology—embracing it and sharing it with everyone around you.
