Work From Home. Kick Some Ass. Change The World
We’re looking for an uber passionate, cutting edge Creative Director/Lead Designer who is committed to using her/his unique talent to make the world a better place.
You love personal development, business growth, and marketing. You understand that great design combines jaw-dropping visuals and an intuitive and innovative user experience, without forgetting the strategic business goals of converting browsers into buyers and existing customers into lifelong, raving fans.
You thrive on mapping out strategic initiatives to catapult the company, and also love to implement your ideas with the execution of typography, custom keynotes, PDFs, ads, layout, photo retouching, illustration, infographics, etc. - all primarily for web and video.
This position will lead everything from the strategic design and overall branding of the company, to producing the designs for our websites, training products, weekly award-winning show MarieTV, and the overall look and feel of everything we do.
As a part of our small company, you’ll wear a lot of hats -- but you’ll also have the opportunity to grow and shape the company -- the only limit is your imagination!
Your day to day experience will be design execution, but you’ll also be involved in working directly with photographers, motion graphic artists, illustrators, animators, fashion stylists, film crew, editors, etc. who will all add their unique skills to company projects.

- You’re driven to define and elevate the look and feel of an industry-leading company that encompasses inspiration, purpose and fun

- You’ve got strong communication and time management skills - ability to work with a dynamic, fast-paced team and meet deadlines
- You’ve earned your BA in Graphic Design (preferred)
- You have 3 years experience as a Lead Designer and/or Creative Director

- You have personal drama
