• 5+ additional years of management of creative teams

• Experience creating award-winning, or nationally recognized work across digital, print, motion, photography, direction, social, etc...

• Technical expertise in the full range of the Creative Suite, Figma, Content Management tools, project management tools like Asana, even Google Slides, and standard visual presentation software

• A true passion for exceptional design—you know grids, systems, colors, typography, and how to work them and push them to their creative edges

• A strong portfolio that demonstrates versatility and a broad range of design and core knowledge and skills

• Experience leading/participating in the design of builds and production of web pages, app creation, and all design assets from social to email to in-store and everything in between

• Excellent communicator with the ability to interact with multiple internal departments

• A self-starter and proactive mentality with a desire to always push, not only the work but your own knowledge further
