Designer / Art Director

Does the sight of Cinderella Castle give you butterflies? Have you ever debated whether Space Mountain or Splash Mountain is better? Did you break down at the end of Toy Story? Are Mickey ice cream bars one of your favorite foods? 

thelab is looking for someone like you. 

We are searching for the perfect Designer / AD to work on the most magical entertainment/hospitality brand in the world.
