I guess this is the new normal as far as design jobs go, in a world where having a team of specialized creatives is just too expensive? I'm a junior designer and this is an "entry level" position, but no entry-level designer has enough experience in all of these things to be considered "expert" or "strong" in all of them. Feels bad, man. I used to consider myself a generalist until I realized that I'm not really a designer until I've done UI/UX and video/motion graphics too.
