As Senior Strategist, you can straddle the line between research guru, idea generator, problem solver and brand interpreter.
You can exceptionally balance these roles and are excited to get your hands on new challenges and lead in an ever-changing environment.
You are able to choreograph a project from conception to execution, and remain actively involved post-launch to ensure its success. You have the skills to gain a full understanding of each brand—conducting comprehensive and creative research of its competitive landscape, cultural relevancy and target consumers, and extracting key insights that inspire creativity. You are a person motivated by information and must be able to craft it into a vision that drives brilliant concepts.
You love the thrill of the pitch and are driven to lead teams of designers, writers, developers and producers toward victory. Understanding that a great idea is worth nothing if the client doesn’t understand and get behind it, you create presentations that are as good as the ideas themselves. What’s more, you can effectively bring these presentations to life in a room full of clients.
You are so immersed in digital culture that it is part of your daily life–not just your job. While you can easily expand your skills across multiple disciplines, you are a passionate expert in strategy, communication and concept development.
