Are you a budding designer or art director? Maybe at this point, it’s unclear which one you want to be when you grow up, but you’re willing to dig in and do the work to find out. While you might not have a perfectly polished portfolio, you’re proactive enough to have something that showcases your creativity—an ad-like object, a brochure, a sketch of a brilliant idea, a website you did for your Uncle Frank. Whatever it is, you can clearly communicate its origin and explain your thinking behind it. You’re a roll-up-your-sleeves self-starter who’s built for solving complex communication problems through visual elements. You have a willingness to partner with whomever it takes to get the job done and believe there’s nothing more exciting than that moment you land on a brilliant idea. Will you have that moment here? Let’s find out.
