About the Job

We are seeking a talented Associate Creative Director - Art to join our creative team. In this role, you will be responsible for leading in the development of creative efforts supporting client work that ranges from Advertising to Earned Media, and everything in between. Working as part of a collaborative team, you'll contribute to multiple projects while working under the direction of more senior creatives.

We are looking for someone who understands the power of a big idea, the nuance of a great tactic, and the difference between the two. Someone who can execute against PR, marketing, advertising, digital social, and everything in between. You'll work across all types of paid media, as well as earned media.

About You

Our ideal candidate will have a proven track record of great creative work and 7-10 years of art direction experience. We'll look to you for solutions that bring ideas to life in engaging ways across a variety of tones and brand personalities. You'll think of and make lots of things, almost none of them TV spots.

You have:

* Strong digital and/or earned media experience, preferably at an agency that specialized in one or both
* Fluency in Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and other relevant Adobe programs
* An extensive portfolio of great creative work across a wide range of media types
* Technical skills that span both art direction and design ideas. And more ideas, even when your first ideas didn't go anywhere. And then even more ideas when the ideas that came after your first ideas didn't go anywhere.
* The ability to think strategically and activate creatively
* The social skills to work well with others, the patience to collaborate, the positive attitude that developing great work commands
* The dexterity to juggle multiple projects at once
* The talent to do all of this with a smile and, occasionally, some well-timed sarcasm
* A 'first to show up and last to leave' work ethic


* Must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (i.e., at least 2 weeks after last dose) and, if hired, present proof of vaccination before start date. Candidates may request an accommodation due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief or an exception required under applicable law
* 7+ years of experience in an agency setting
* Experience in traditional & digital creative development
* Experience working with Account Leads, Strategy Leads, Digital Leads, and other interagency teams
* Experience working with & presenting to C-Suite clients
