The Creative Team
Being a Creative at Born Social isn't just about making pretty things, it's about making effective work. Work that is tied closely to account strategy and work that is often tasked with getting people to take action. We believe in adding real business value to our clients, and you will often be presented with this challenge. We are not a table of passive designers, rather a group of social media strategists with an arsenal of creative skills. A diverse, multi skilled bunch, made up of copywriters, photographers, animators and designers who work incredibly hard and always think social first.
If you're the kind of person who genuinely gets a buzz from being smart in the social space then you're going to fit right in.
