Job Description

You’re at the top of your game and instrumental in guiding the entire craft development and delivery output for the design team. Principals provide a creative vision not just for the projects, but also a majority of the department's creative output. They establish processes and practices for realizing that vision and set the bar for quality. They contribute to the development of the team's design-based engagements and internal experience principles; and then ensure that those are appropriately interpreted through the team's work.

Principals act as the voice for their teams, internally with other departments and company initiatives, as well as externally with clients and within the industry. They are the staunch defender for their team members, the champion of the department's values and the one of the visionaries for the future of the team.


You thrive working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment, and relish acting as a mentor to more junior designers. You inspire confidence immediately with a client and are brought in for more challenging or advanced clients, to guide and support other designers. You are inspired by innovative web and mobile design and follow the latest design trends. You’re an organized project team player with the ability to iron out an amorphous process and effectively lead the team’s deliverables, responsibilities and schedule.
