? InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop mainly but also Sketch and Figma and maybe some Premiere Pro and After Effects
? Video work would only be a quick animation for social or edits etc.
? Photo searching is part of the role so a good eye for sifting through stock images is helpful
? A typical project could be art directing a PPT = putting images into a presentation or sourcing imagery
? The work will vary but will be roughly 25% art direction vs 75% design campaign work
? 3rd person on the team but work w/ the other centers of excellence (within that there?s teams for social, video, email, .com, etc. and this designer could support each team)
