Being a designer at GuideSpark is about being a great visual communicator. You bring together photos, illustrations, diagrams, and charts with smooth animations to tell a compelling visual story. You pay attention to the details and understand how the right fonts, colors, images, animations, layouts and music can come together to create something meaningful and effective. You've even figured out how to use stock photography without making the average viewer gag. You've yet to meet a creative professional tool that you haven't been able to teach yourself to use in an hour or two. You want to use your skills to do a lot more than static logo design, and you're excited by the idea of creating content in motion. Ultimately, you're a great designer, you work efficiently, and you care about creating the best content possible within the time constraints.
