Job Description

We are a small, fast-paced internal Creative Team who takes responsibility and ownership in creating high caliber creative for a beloved brand. We are here to provide strategically sound, breakthrough creative solutions for many different audiences through a variety of platforms; from digital to print to in-theatre signage.

You are a creative storyteller with experience in making visually dynamic and compelling designs. You are an outstanding graphic designer and photo art director who is comfortable with creating a large volume and variety of content and eager to explore strategic visual storytelling on multiple platforms. You have the ability to think conceptually and strategically. You rarely need someone to feed you the idea. You’re an idea machine.

You're a team player. You’re a great listener, open to feedback and able to take the creative vision and bring it to life. You are low ego and don’t grow attached to your own ideas—instead, you have a strong desire to push them. You are reliable, responsible and flexible to the situations thrown your way, and you tackle challenges head on. You’re an active participant—You’re engaged and prepared to speak up in discussions.

You design with energy and passion for your craft. Creativity in design, a love for photography, type, color, composition is your life and you inspire the creative team with your energy and ambition. You’re a master of all things digital. You know all the ins and outs and can provide insights on a regular basis, but you also have a general knowledge of print production. You are constantly keeping up with new trends in digital and social channels.

You create strategically. You have the ability to see a vision while meeting customer and business needs. You deliver more than just beautiful design—your design decisions are always thoughtful and strategic. Delivering amazing work that generates results and compels action is your objective.

You are organized, methodical, and timely. You should be able to meet or exceed all creative expectations for deliverables. You can work quickly within deadlines, briefs, and creative direction, as well as with outside vendors such as stylists, photographers and agencies as needed.

You’re an experienced and motivated talent and you have the hybrid skill sets to show for it: Digital, print, photography, video, animation and you have the technical acumen for capturing, editing, and producing impactful creative that engages the customer.

You are a natural self-starter who will create projects and have a polished visual aesthetic that's fun and energetic. You do not require much oversight, you’re a thinker with a growth mindset. You are proactive and come to the table with ideas. You’re a quick problem-solver and unbelievably creative.

You’re passionate about the movies and follow what’s going on in the entertainment and advertising industry on a regular basis. You can create lemonade out of lemons and you always do it with a smile and enthusiasm.
