To land this role, you’ll need to be a strong UX/UI designer who can create visual impact through a fashion-forward lens.

As the Design Lead, you’ll also provide overall visual direction for multi-brand campaigns and communicate with clients and the in-house photo studio to ensure aesthetic standards are being maintained across creative assets.
