We need someone to provide the creative leadership "Zen" for our design team. We produce printed design cases for mobile phones, tablets, and other small devices. The qualified applicant: ? Is creative by nature ? Has an eye for art, design and balance ? Can work with and direct a team of sometimes irrational creatives ? Can connect with our customers via Social and sense what they want ? Understands how art and design ideas can be funneled into final concept, then finely honed into marketable designs that appeal to our customers ? Can work with design team to translate customer desires into design ? Has a deep understanding and appreciation of cartoons, particularly anime and other asian origin animation. ? Can translate creative chaos into order Much of our work will center around animation designs, as these are in heavy demand. We are signing agreements with select animation brand owners, so things are becoming interesting here. There are possibilities for creative expression from our designers within these characters, however designers will need a strong creative leader to guide their art. Your work days will consist of, among other things: ? Selecting winning concepts from design submissions ? Analyzing past hot-sellers and finding new designs which should have demand ? Submission of approved designs to the catalog management team, support as needed ? Finding new artists from online communities which may be interested in licensing and promoting their brand and work with us ? Onboarding of new artists ? Collaborating in keeping our Company Image documents up to date ? Communicating with management and team members regarding current fashions and trends Important note: ? We have a "leave your ego at the door" policy here. We don't tolerate "company politics" as this distracts from our positive Ch'i (energy) as a team. Respect and a positive working environment must be supported by all team members. This is a part-time position, as we are a small but growing company. You can grow with us, and significant upside potential exists. We ask for the usual requirements in your proposal? CV, past experience, requested hourly rate, etc. Mostly we want you to explain to us what you can bring to the team, and why you are a perfect fit for us. If this is who you are, come work with us to make magic for our customers!
