Visual story teller. Strategist. Translator.
These are some of the words we use to describe our Senior Designers.
If this is how you like to describe yourself, we’d love to hear from you.
We’re looking for someone to join our team who, quite simply, “gets it” – understands that “artistic vision” is important, but ultimately it’s about making the client happy. You must be equally versed in print and web design, and have an appreciation for both. Our work is demanding, but rewarding and we want someone willing to dive in and add value at every step.
