Most importantly, you believe in the power of combining design with the written word to move people.

These concepts could be in the form of animation, illustrations, data visualization, video or photography. You should understand and have experience in After Effects to bring your ideas to life with motion.
We have a strong point of view for how editorial, design and data work together in the service of a singular goal. It starts with identifying great stories that support the ideas our clients care about and bringing them to life in a range of formats. As a senior designer, you’ll be expected to work closely with a team of designers, strategists, journalists and editors with backgrounds at the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Bloomberg and other top publications.
