Focus Lab · Apr 9th 2019

Brand Strategy defines a foundation and rationale for a company’s brand. We are looking for a strong brand strategist who loves the strategic branding process and the power of storytelling.
You will contribute your drive for research, analysis, and critical thinking to help define that same foundation and rationale for our clients. Through research and analysis into our clients’ identity, audience, and competitors, you will define the direction for brand identities, presenting them in comprehensive strategy documents, and being the strategic voice for the design of the brand. You are comfortable learning the ins and outs of our clients’ companies, their industries, and their offerings. You’re equally at ease with conversations about business objectives, positioning, and differentiation. You understand that stories are key to your work, and know how to tell a good one while sniffing out the bad. You’re not afraid of having difficult conversations with clients, showing them how strategy is the cornerstone of all design work. You consider yourself actively collaborative, an empathic listener, a critical thinker, and hungry to be empowering and encouraging within a team of strategists, writers, and designers.
If you think you might be a good fit, consider these questions: Do you seek out opportunities to collaborate on brand strategy and design? Are you able to develop a rapport with clients in such a way that it enables you to produce better strategy? Do you value listening? Do you crave critical feedback? Do you lean into challenging design problems? Do you love building up your team members? Can you navigate the nuances of client communication, getting consensus on directions that might feel uncomfortable for clients?
