What We Are Looking For
We’re looking for someone who checks off most, but not all, of the boxes. You excel at tackling projects with different timelines, and welcome feedback and collaboration. It’s more important to us to find a candidate who can display indicators of success through skills they have developed and experience they have been a part of, than to find folks who have “been there, done that”. We want to be a part of your development journey, and we’ll learn as much from you as you learn from us.
 
There are a few must-haves, but we will keep that list short:
·         Bachelor’s degree or College diploma program in Graphic Design or a related program
·         Portfolio to showcase your work as a designer
·         Have 4-6 years of experience in an agency, or as an in-house designer
·         Experience working with MacOS
·         Possess a high degree of proficiency in Adobe Creative Cloud; specifically, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator
·         Excellent project management skills, and attention to detail.
·         Experience with video editing (Adobe After Effects) is preferred.
·         Understanding of HTML5 animated ads is a definite asset.
·         Knowledge of UI design principles and software (Adobe XD or Figma etc.) is also valued.
