  • Be diligent in the creative process: Author briefs, project scope and budget documentation; present them to the Creative Services team as the voice of the client

  • Enthusiastically lead the team through all aspects of the project from inception through completion; keep everyone excited and informed

  • Communicate effectively and regularly with leadership, the client and all team members involved with each project

  • Contribute ideas that lead to successes outside of your day-to-day responsibilities
