Vice President/Director - Experience Design
With nearly a decade of experience behind you, you bleed experience design. You do more than just oversee work, you roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. You're known for heading up teams that quickly create and execute concepts, for winning over a room of clients, and for spending countless hours helping junior designers learn the ropes. You are the hardest worker in the room. You're about doing whatever it takes to get something done and surrounding yourself with fun, smart, talented people to do it with. You are the type of person that people not only want to work with but want to work for.
Every day you check your ego at the door and come with a thirst to learn something new. You are always trying out new tools and techniques and challenging your team to do the same. You are a trend setter when it comes to design, tools, process, and technology. Your knowledge of technology trends and behaviors is one step ahead of everyone else.
The icing on the cake is that you also have highly varied skills and interests in a combination we wouldn't have thought to ask for. Maybe you're a photographer who codes your own image filters. Maybe you're a Typography nerd who scores your own home movies. Whatever you are, you’re curious, multi-talented and crazy good.
