Who You Are:
There is no creative problem you cannot solve. You build relationships everywhere you go. You were the captain of your sports team or club, and you didn't succeed unless your team succeeded.

You are ready to use your experience in brand strategy to implement brands across the globe. You can't wait to measure by your results, because you know that the world only values results.

You were made to be a creative influence on others with less and more experience than you.

You don't care for rules, and definitely take risks in your work.

You are outspoken, and never settle for anything less than excellence.

What you'll do @ DBC:

Think of yourself as the captain of the team: Every day, you’ll:

+ Lead With Intention

It'll be your team. You'll transition to take a highly talented group of designers and make design thinkers from them. You'll take charge of adding to that team, and help guide the creative strategy of each and every project.

You'll make sure the machine is firing and cranking out radical creative on time and at or under budget.

You'll manage multiple projects of various sizes at any given time.

+ Design, Design, Design

You'll know when its time to roll your sleeves up and do it yourself. When that ultra important client meeting is just a day away, you'll be right here in the trenches making the concepts perfect.

You'll approve that work, and confidently present it to clients. Those clients will love the work and its results, so much that they refer DBC to others.

+ Get Challenged and Solve Problems

You'll work hard for your team’s concepts, and you fight to prove that they will achieve the desired result and more. You do this with testing, both quantitative and qualitative.

+ Teach

You’ll have Junior Design Thinkers and Intermediate Design Thinkers working with you. You’ll train them and make sure they’re as efficient as possible. You’ll empower them to make educated decisions, and unpack the results with them.

+ Develop

You don’t sugarcoat, but you do understand the human elements of a team and grow individuals with varying talents into professional designers that will become Senior Design Thinkers in 2-4 years.
