In addition, you'll have the opportunity to work with other senior members of the design team, helping us improve process, approaches, and strategy for both the design team and the studio as a whole.

We currently have a hybrid policy in which you are required to be in the studio on our universal day on Tuesdays and are welcome to either work from the studio or from home for the rest of the week. Our design team has committed to also coming into the studio on a Thursday too.
