  • Advanced knowledge of Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Sketch
  • Expert attention to detail and ability to manage shifting priorities on the fly
  • An obsession with typography, layout, color, and all things branded and interactive
  • A portfolio that demonstrates exceptional critical thinking skills and a sharp eye for visual design, including documentation illustrating your thought process around a given project
