Vice President/ Director, Experience Design

OVERVIEW

Vice President/Director: Experience Design

Our Creative Directors at Digitas are creative leaders who make digital products and services people love to use. They are collaborators who bring multidisciplinary teams together to set and drive a vision forward. Their backgrounds run the gamut from site to mobile, ecom to campaign, startup to agency. They are designers focused on creating the best possible experiences, who love making new things, and are exceptionally well versed in the practice of modern digital product creation. 

They love color. They obsess over type. They think strategically and can craft the narratives necessary to support their creative vision. They are makers at heart, and are not afraid to jump in and get their hands dirty. 

 

Sound good? Good.
