Brand - Energy Designer I
Posted on Jan 22, 2019 by Nike
Soul, performance and style take flight at Jordan Brand. With its deep roots in basketball, the Jordan Brand began as an homage to one player: Michael Jordan. Since then, Jordan has become synonymous with peak performance and an endless pursuit of greatness. Employees in merchandising, product branding, sports marketing and sales bring creativity, innovation and audacious design to footwear and apparel, all with one mission in mind: help athletes fly on and off the court.
As our Energy Designer I - Brand Jordan Footwear, you'll create innovative designs for Jordan Footwear products under the direction of Design Leadership. You'll work within our cross-functional Category team to create a line from concept to reality and produce footwear product designs that advance Jordan's design image, product performance and appeal to targeted consumers. You'll also present visual concept solutions to product briefs; collaborate with our Design, Development and Product Management groups to focus product designs for market success; and finalize technical packages. This opportunity also involves proactively following the execution of all product details, including construction, color, form, style, detail, fit, performance and cost/value requirements. In addition, you'll develop an understanding of the category-specific consumer and their culture by learning about competitor products, consumer retail habits and market trends; and translate what you've learned into all product designs.
