<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Drive editorial messaging, considering how copy, imagery, and product come together to tell the strongest story and inspire the consumer, all while being tightly aligned with brand priorities.</span></li>

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Work in tandem with design lead to guide and inspire the team as well as elevate our print portfolio.

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Live in lockstep with cross-functional marketing and merchandising partners. You’ll be responsible for understanding and influencing their priorities and goals, partnering on visual merchandising and product-based storytelling, maintaining seamless communication, and effectively translating creative strategy.</span></li>

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Do all of the above in a fast-paced environment where deadlines are daily and the volume of work is high. Pace should thrill you, not derail you.&nbsp;</span></li>
