Art Director or ACD



You are a leader in design and content wow-er. You use your mastery of hard working layouts and knack for typography to create memorable, effective, and dare we say – award-winning – creative work across all media. You think a bit differently and we love you for it. You have an incredible eye for detail and big ideas. You don't take critique to heart (but it’s more than OK to be passionate about your work) and you leave your ego at the door. You are comfortable pitching ideas openly and iterating swiftly without hand-holding. You are competent at everything from social media to web site design.
