Downtown LA cross-cultural agency seeks a conceptual, multi-talented designer. You think in terms of "big ideas" with integration across digital and traditional media. You understand the difference between a concept and a tactic/execution. You are well versed in all things digital: social, web banner design & animation, mobile ads, motion graphic animation, video editing, photography, etc. You know what it's like to work in a medium-sized ad shop that is growing quickly, rolling with the punches, turning on a dime, and always landing on your feet. And you love the idea of working in a multicultural team environment in Downtown Los Angeles, at the heart of the resurgent Broadway Theater District, surrounded by incredible food and a surprisingly lively urban environment.
Despite your broad range of capabilities, you're still eager to learn what you don't already know. You're extremely creative, but also have an "eagle-eye" for detail, and are able to conceptualize and execute creative work that faithfully adheres to a given strategic framework. Short timelines and quick turnarounds don't scare you. You're also a team player, comfortable collaborating in a multi-cultural staff environment. Spanish/ bilingual skills a massive plus!

-Expertise in Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop and Illustrator, InDesign, Microsoft Office Suite (PowerPoint, in particular), HTML5 scripting (web banner development and animation), and current web standards (CSS3 a plus, but not required)

-Proficiency in motion graphics design and animation
