BEAUTYCOUNTER, Santa Monica, CA June 2018 – Present
SENIOR DESIGNER - LAUNCHES / SPECIAL PROJECTS
Reporting to Creative Director and CCO, I was brought on to Beautycounter to help establish a more elevated template of creative across all platforms as well as ownership of special projects (i.e.) pop-up shops, store-openings, influencer kits, managing brand guides, and leading design in all major seasonal campaign creative. The message of safer beauty and skincare products, advocating in Washington for ingredient regulations, and a team of powerful women have inspired me to really make the brand as beautiful as their mission. I want all creative that reaches consultants and consumers, no matter how minor, to be the utmost quality - because these women deserve it.
