Job Summary

Visual Designers will be working on projects for some of the biggest and most innovative media projects online. These are major consumer facing websites, so they need to have experience with large-scale projects in e-commerce, digital media, advertising and more--our clients are as varied as can be, and Visual Designers need to be able to move from one project to the next without missing a beat. Our team is excited to push themselves while they're here and grow quickly; we want people who are ready to soak up as much from this environment as they contribute with amazing design. WJP Studio produces stunning work; our team challenges themselves at all times to top the bar. The ability to contribute ideas and execute the ideas of others quickly and competently is key. We're looking for multifaceted, collaborative designers to work on everything from full website rebuilds to global marketing. This is an opportunity to define and reinvent the digital space, and a passion for doing just that is critical--we want people who believe in their skills and their perspective and are ready to bring that awesomeness to these projects.

Description

o The ability to both work autonomously and as part of a team -- you'll need to do both here, so we want need people who can get their marching orders and go as well as communicate and collaborate.

o Leadership skills. Our designers have the opportunity -- and responsibility -- to come up with great ideas and work with junior designers to see them through to the finish.
