Design Director

A combination of Lee Clow and the best Tumblr no one has ever heard of

YOU: You have an open mind and a confident manner, able to inspire, instruct, critique, and create. Autonomous by nature, you can hit the ground running and see a job as more than a job. You get satisfaction out of teaching and mentoring others, and you bring an eclectic bag of knowledge, experience, and interests to the table.

 

THEM:  They are a global strategy and creative services agency rooted in the heart of culture. They help brands embrace and connect with an audience that sees and navigates the world with more nuance and sophistication – a world that demands more than a tagline. More understanding. More honesty. More importance.
