  • Solid portfolio of work that displays your design chops, including an exceptional design sensibility (typography, layout, and prototyping) and experience designing for the entire consumer journey
  • Expert knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Figma, and/or other relevant design tools
  • Super-collaborator who can ideate, develop and execute campaigns alongside an art director partner, while also working with team members across design, production, digital and product development departments
  • Self-motivated and adaptable—frequently seeking feedback and proactively developing improvements to deliverables, work processes, design systems, and project management practices
  • Exemplary organizational and time management skills
  • Strategic, insight-driven thinker who ensures all deliverables ladder up to greater business objectives

Bonus If You Have:
