You can tread water in a pixel ocean, devour a vector layer cake, and solve design problems on your feet. You know how to deepen your own skills while leading a team of designers to success (and client happiness). You're a critical thinker who likes to create cool stuff and have fun doing it, and you aren’t scared of playing in new mediums, whether digital, analog, interpersonal, or metaphysical.
