Wanted: Creative Director with Polish

Are friends and colleagues in awe of your ability to discriminate among the thousands of shades of red and pink? Can you tell a frost from a shimmer at ten paces? Are you aware of the power of a good ridge-smoothing base coat? If so (and even if not), you might be perfect as the creative director of Essie Cosmetics, the Astoria, New York-based beauty company known for its long-lasting, quirkily-named nail lacquers. Essie is looking for “a seasoned creative leader to drive all brand imaging and visual identity across print and digital media.” And if you score an interview, be sure to mention and/or wear the company’s perennial bestseller, a placid shade of palest pink called “Ballet Slippers.”
