Job Description

DESCRIPTION:

Everybody says they’re looking for an experienced, award-winning Art Director to join their creative team. And in fairness, so are we. But with all the commoditized creative output and homogenized experiences out there, we’re looking for something very different. We want someone who excels in their craft and can’t rest easy until the job is done right. Someone who sees a limitation as a creative challenge to work around. We’re looking for a maker - the kind of maker that copywriters will knife fight each other to work with.

Our ideal candidate will have a big picture strategic vision and a forward-looking skill set.

This is a hands-on position that will work on everything (design, broadcast, print, social, digital) with everyone (in partnerships, teams, or an occasional project lead). But it’s not enough to just see the creative execution through, you’ve got to sell the work, too. Some client face time is on your horizon.

Join us and you’ll be part of a collaborative, fun, fast-paced team. It’s a roll-up-your-sleeves, make cool stuff, let’s blow people’s minds type of atmosphere. Interested?

Tell us why you are the person for this position. Be sure to include a link with samples of your best work (actual samples, please, no comps).

REQUIREMENTS:

Three to five years of advertising experience. (Or accomplished work that looks like five.)

Must have a strong style and voice in order to execute, lead or develop a wide range of creative concepts and compelling content.

Must initiate and build relationships both internally and externally with minimal supervision/direction from management.

Expert Photoshop and Illustrator skills are required. As is a comprehensive understanding of digital and UX function and design. (Basic knowledge of Microsoft Office also a plus.)

Superior visual literacy and expert understanding of design principles, illustration, and photography.

The ability to write wouldn’t hurt your chances, either.

Must possess the ability to lead concepting, as well as lead presentation, applications and promotional designs.

Must have strong verbal as well as visual communication skills.

Must be a creative, self-motivated team player willing to take the lead and develop forward-thinking solutions.

Must have strong presentation skills and be comfortable presenting in small or large group settings, including our clients, agency staff or other external audiences.

NOTE: International candidates must hold a valid US working permit.

We have always focused on "what's next." We were founded in 1989 as a design firm desiring to have more of an impact on our clients’ business. From an early start, we saw the value in “big data” when it wasn’t so big, and acquired a database marketing firm in 1993. Then in 1997, we acquired a digital interactive company because we realized business was changing. We opened an office in Atlanta to grow our footprint and better serve national accounts. As technology advanced, so did our business. In 2011, we launched an emerging technology innovation lab filled with app developers and technologists dedicated solely to looking to the future to identify what’s next. Finally, in 2015, we created a digital performance marketing team, giving us the ability to optimize and measure everything from traditional advertising to social media to PR. Our aim? Be the best in the country. Our work and our client partners might tell you we're there. And yet, we remain that nimble, curious, fiercely independent startup who just wanted to be the best in the building.
