The technical stuff:
Must have a four-year degree in art or design related field. Four to five years of experience in a studio or agency is preferred. Mastery of Adobe Creative suite: Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, (After Effects is a plus but not required), PowerPoint. If you're an artist, photographer, gamer, potter, we'd love to hear about it and how it may extend into what you do here. Sadly, throwing clay is not a part of the job.
The senior designer must have at least two years of relevant experience in public relations and/or related fields including design, advertising, management consulting, media and publishing.
