Design Director
Immediate, 2x4 New York
A Design Director plays a critical role at 2x4 as s/he both shapes the work of a team and leads multiple teams in cross-disciplinary projects. While teams are organized by discipline, we actively transgress those boundaries to find new forms of overlap between visual design, content development, space, technology, and experience. S/he should have a superior intellect and highly developed perspective regarding the cultural and disciplinary issues surrounding contemporary design.

S/he must be a very high-level critical thinker and possess significant expertise in brand strategy and brand design as all projects are grounded in strategy and the tactical application in physical forms. However, a Design Director oversees multiple disciplines and skill sets and draws them together into coherent projects. In addition, s/he must play an important public role dealing directly with clients and articulating the studio ethos both internally and externally.

Roles and Responsibilities
- Management, mentorship and oversight of a branding team.
- Work with Partners and Managing Director to set a strategic agenda and specific tactical initiatives for visual design at 2x4.

- Strategize, conceive, create and present design ideas specific to projects and clients.
- Direct, critique, and mentor designers and oversee all design work and team presentations.
- Provide consultation on other 2x4 projects across teams, as required.
- Attend all key client meetings, presentations, and workshops to present and promote the work of the team.
- Work with Managing Director and project management staff on pricing and contracts for team projects.
- Manage overall project workflow, project allocation, budget, and schedule on all projects within the team.
- Oversee the performance review process for all team members
