We seek a smart, curious and wildly creative Senior Web Designer to play a key role in our Marketing team. Your passion for flawlessly executed and engaging design is topped only by your obsession with usability and overall communication. You hunger for the latest in CSS and HTML5 techniques and continually use what you learn to push the boundaries of technology and user experience. You engage in heated debates on the benefits of responsive design and mobile technology. You have a thirst for inspiration that simply cannot be quenched. And, you probably get a little offended when people imply that typography is just for print designers.
About the position
This is a new position, working within a small team in the design department to both fulfill and elevate our digital capabilities. The position requires both project ownership and collaboration on strategy, concept and design, with the responsibility of leading projects to completion.
