You’re a conceptual thinker. You like big ideas, and figuring out how to bring it to life through visual storytelling. You thrive in fast-moving environments and are impatient about getting your work out into the world. You love collaboration and aren’t afraid to speak up when you have an idea. You’re always learning, from those around you, or by jumping in to figure something out on your own. You aren’t afraid to tackle a challenge head on and search out the answers you need. You’re detail oriented — if you notice it’s a pixel off you just HAVE to go back to nudge it over. You can’t help yourself (sorrynotsorry). Passionate about the design industry, you look at other brands and read about design trends. Bad kerning on signs makes your eye twitch. You probably redesign ads on the T in your head. You want to work with people that feel the same way.
