We look for a very high level of skill with InDesign, strong graphic design ability, a love of the industry and a talent for telling stories about it, great client service, and impeccable organization and project management. As we are constantly expanding our offering, we are also interested in any ancillary experience or skill such as video editing and motion graphics.
