The bulk of our work is web-based. As such, we're looking for a
designer who embraces this medium, who is comfortable in designing
with Web standards, who is experienced in developing interfaces and
pages that are useful, usable, and engaging.

Ideally, we are looking for a designer who is equal parts graphic
designer and interaction designer. As a graphic designer, you are

people are trying to get things done. You seek to design tools and
content that empowers people to successfully accomplish their goals.

client-side), and a strong portfolio. We are definitely seeking
senior-level people, and are interested in talking to director-level
