Senior Art Director

Is Santy for you? We’ll find out soon enough, when you send us a link to your brilliant portfolio and resumé. Fair warning: We’re not just looking for someone who makes pretty pictures. Your skills and talents go above and beyond design techniques. You have a mind brimming with big ideas and the technical capacity to implement them. You possess that rare and elusive ability to thoroughly comprehend a brand strategy, distill it to its core essence, then turn it into something beautiful. You take constructive critique like a champ and you play well with others. You laugh far more than you complain, and you feel totally at home in a loud, boisterous, no-holds-barred, collaborative environment.

- Provide accurate time and cost estimates for each tactic
