  • Collaborate on projects spanning a broad range including site-wide responsive template designs, subscription and promotional messaging systems and commerce experiences.

  • Create and iterate on design projects across the entire product life cycle and multiple product launches. 
  • Evaluate the success of existing products and features, and develop designs to support business objectives.
  • Act as an advocate for the user, reader, viewer or customer in support of those business objectives.
  • Maintain other responsibilities as needed.

  • Knowledge of illustration, photography, art, image making.
  • UX, UI, research, storytelling and design process and portfolio which showcases projects from beginning to end.
  • Communication skills to help set up frameworks and brainstorm initial design concepts. 
  • Respect when challenging assumptions; giving and receiving feedback with equal grace.
  • Ability to work autonomously and oversee your design from beginning to end, but also equally comfortable in a collaborative environment, and willing to work with other team members when necessary.

  • Excellent knowledge of the technologies used to build modern digital experiences.
