You are an independent worker, who knows when to rally the collaboration and consultation of the team and your clients to deliver exceptional products that are on time, on budget and on strategy. You can work in a high-pressure environment with rapid deadlines, high workload and evolving priorities.
You must have completed a post-secondary certification or degree program in Graphic Design, Information Design, Communications Design or similar program. You demonstrate experience in design and marketing production, across all communications formats. You are fluent in all aspects of Adobe Creative Suite and a Microsoft Office work environment. You can demonstrate experience addressing challenges with excellent marketing and design solutions and can clearly articulate how your ideas and strategies advance objectives in a compelling fashion.
We offer a fast-paced, creative team environment based in downtown Banff, with wilderness and active pursuits just outside the door.
