  • As an art director you will write creative briefs for illustrators, motion graphic designers and other partners to push the boundaries of our product and communications.
  • Help promote best practices and standards to develop workflows that accelerate the ideation process, and promote a positive, inclusive environment.
  • Help develop assets for both one-off and ongoing marketing initiatives (daily social media posts, owned channel creative updates, internal communications, swag, and more).

What you’ll bring to the table

  • An open, curious and collaborative mindset with an enthusiasm for storytelling and craft.
  • Exceptional understanding of the creative process and design principles. Expertise in working with Creative Suite Illustrator & Photoshop as well as Sketch is a must. Bonus points for After Effects.
  • Portfolio showcasing proficiency in communication design and dedication to delight - with details on your role and contribution.
  • The enthusiasm and conviction to present and protect brilliant ideas. You are able to distill complex information into meaningful concepts and strive to make sure nothing good gets left behind - whether they are your proposals or you are nurturing the ideas of others.
