  • Assessing for the quality and appropriateness of imagery.
  • Developing strong, evocative solutions for the creative team.
  • Delivering the highest possible creative output when requested.

What we’d probably see in your résumé/portfolio

  • Strong communication, conceptual thinking, typography skills and design skills.
  • An ability to communicate strategically.
  • Experience working with a team.
  • Excellent organizational skills.
  • Bachelor’s degree in design or related field.
  • 2-4 years of experience in graphic design.
