Employer: Split Rock Studios, St. Paul
Recruiter: Soladay Olson | Marketing for Creatives
Split Rock Studios is looking for an experienced and collaborative Design Manager to oversee our design department. You will ensure the quality and standards of all design work, and inspire our team to push innovation and excellence in our design — while making sure designs meet client and visitor objectives.
The Design Manager will work closely with exhibit designers and developers, graphic designers, and our clients to create seamless visitor experiences that meet project goals. The responsibilities of this position will lean significantly toward management and strategy, but include some hands-on exhibition design. As a designer, the Design Manager will produce drawings that communicate 3D design intent and describe how the exhibition is organized in a space — its shape, dimensions, materials, and general construction.
