- Ensuring the overall visual aspects of our campaigns and commercials are engaging, consistent and the selling message is clear throughout all related content.

- Providing art direction on set, including setting the tone for prop and wardrobe stylists.
- Conducting ongoing design and brand trend research for our clients, and always bringing fresh ideas to the table.

- Love to come up with big ideas
- Have a strong aesthetic sense with an ability to mold your designs to different brands and objectives
- Have strong storytelling skills and craft visually compelling stories under sometimes tight deadlines
- Be hungry to get your hands dirty in all facets of advertising
