Friends, we have some exciting news and some bittersweet news at the same time!
After seven years with our team, our incredible Art Director Nicole will be moving on to new adventures in the new year. She started working with us as an intern while she was in college, and this is the only job she’s had since then. This is bittersweet for all of us! She is simply ready for a new adventure, and we’re so excited to cheer her on in the months ahead. Nicole is one of the most creative and dynamic people we have ever met, and she has impacted thousands of women over the course of her time with our team. While we are so, so sad to have to say farewell to her this coming December, we’re excited for her next chapter and can’t wait to meet the person who will join our team in her role!
To step into Nicole’s shoes, we are looking for another incredibly creative, skilled, and dynamic individual to join our team. What better way to describe the person we’re looking for than letting Nicole tell you herself. Take it away, Nicole:
Spending my days in our office with my amazing teammates is no easy thing to say goodbye to, but it makes me beyond excited to meet the person who will take my place. This job has given me the opportunity to work on some dream projects, meet the most talented and kind people, and be a part of a workplace family that is supportive, and challenges me to be my best self. I can’t wait for someone else to be a part of this!
Each day in this position is a workout for your head and your heart. I believe that doing this job best means balancing the needs of our customers with the logistics and tactics of our growing company and project list. It means approaching design with both intuition and strategy, seeing each assignment as an opportunity to reach a new person and tell a new story. We spend a lot of time in our office talking about our core values of enthusiasm, integrity, the power of one, and global view. These are values that dictate our work on every level. Our greatest hope for our new team member is that he or she is impassioned to advocate for the needs of our customers and for the integrity of our brand message; is empowered to translate this vision into every part of our brand, from Instagram gifs to product development to photo shoots; and determined to keep improving.
As the Art Director, you’ll be expected to dive into company projects with an immediate vision, able to deliver assets under fast-paced deadlines. Our design decisions tend to strike our audience as fun, happy, and casual, but the Art Director should be able to balance our accessible deliverables with the nuances of our brand mission and greater marketing strategy. You’ll be expected to learn the expectations and desires of our audience in order to best communicate with them. Additionally, our Art Director must be capable of independent work and decision-making. He or she needs to be able to self-edit, and to clearly communicate why he or she made the decisions that they made.
