Senior Designer

Who You Are

You can tread water in a pixel ocean, devour a vector layer cake, and solve design problems on your feet. You know how to deepen your own skills while leading a team of designers to success (and client happiness). You're a critical thinker who likes to create cool stuff and have fun doing it, and you aren’t scared of playing in new mediums, whether digital, analog, interpersonal, or metaphysical.


What You’ll Do


  • Brainstorm big ideas with the copy and design teams
  • Bring those big ideas into a visual reality
  • Establish high standards in process, design, and presentation
  • Stay on top of all new techniques and trends in multichannel, multi-medium marketing efforts


  • Collaborate with the creative, production, and accounts teams to understand fully client needs on all projects
  • Clearly articulate your vision and provide insightful, efficient feedback to your team
  • Direct the creation of visual assets with internal and external resources such as photographers, imagers, illustrators, animators, and developers
  • Present ideas, strategy, process and plans clearly and effectively to internal teams and clients
  • Manage time and workload for you and your team


  • With your team (and sometimes on your own) you’ll bring ideas to life across time, space, and mediums


Our Must-Haves

  • Experience building and leading teams
  • Natural strength as a problem solver, including a drive to find creative solutions to design and execution challenges
  • Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Keynote
  • Mac-leaning but Windows-capable
  • Packing a broad, deep understanding of typography, period & current styles, design theory, and best web practices
  • Experience with front-end development/knowledge of CSS/HTML a serious plus
  • Empathy, communication skills, and general nice-person-ness a must


Where You’ve Been

We’re looking for someone with 6+ years of experience in the field, as well as prior experience leading a team. That said, we care more about aptitude than perfection, and we always appreciate an unusual career trajectory. If you think you’d be a fit, tell us why—we want to hear your story.


Interested? Send Us:

  • Your CV
  • A nontraditional cover letter (“Really?”—Yes, really.)
  • A link to your portfolio
