The goal is to produce relevant work that will be of real interest to the CNN audience; a network available to more than 2 billion people in more than 200 countries and territories, spanning TV, Web, Snapchat, Social Media, Airports and Mobile Devices. Here's what this ground floor opening requires: You've already figured out how to be ferociously creative in the working world. Your first job as Design Director will be to your impossibly high standards onto the visual work coming out of the Studio.

You will then immediately take on the task of perpetually raising the bar you have set. The look and feel of our materials and output will be your baby to nurture and protect. Your portfolio demonstrates an exciting range of tones, solutions, and looks. You're practiced at the art of balancing quality with a quick turnaround. You've instituted processes that can help a designer juggle multiple projects while maintaining quality control. You're an ideas person, not an order taker.

You already regularly pitch additive layouts, information graphics, interactive and illustration ideas as part of your day-to-day. You're happy in a hands-on leadership role. You have a proven knack for hiring and nurturing exciting design talent.

You're at home working in multimedia. You appreciate the importance of presentations and site mock ups, but you've also demonstrated you can go beyond the conceptual and apply your designs to post-sale projects. You know how to animate your work, you've shown how graphics can enhance video, you are fluent in web production, and you enjoy nothing more than tying a bow of consistent design around an experience that spans multiple platforms and devices. The Design Director will report directly to the Vice President of the Brand Studio. Salary will be in keeping with your experience and commensurate with other Design Lead positions.

Qualifications:

  • Candidate should have at least 5 years of practical experience in the design field and experience creating advertising and Editorial-based products, preferably for a digital publisher.
  • BA/BS in graphic design, photography, interaction design, or related fields.
  • Strong conceptual and visual design background pertaining to typography, color theory, illustration, photography, and layout approaches.
  • Strong portfolio urls required.
  • Expert in After Effects, Photoshop, Sketch and Illustrator.
  • Proven ability to build and manage a team of freelance designers and vendors.
