Art Director

Art directors are the agency’s visionaries. Literally. They bring ideas to life through design, photography, illustration, video and animation.

Often working with a copywriter or creative director, an art director determines how to best represent a concept. They are responsible for the overall visual tone, style and execution of an advertising campaign. Art directors follow the strategy defined in a creative brief to ensure that their clients’ message is conveyed to its target audience. To fill this role, we’re looking for a creative whose work is not only striking but also compelling.

  • Collaborating with team members to create persuasive messaging
  • Producing sketches, storyboards and roughs to visualize ideas
  • Creating logos
  • Working with different types of media
  • Coordinating direction with other artistic and creative departments
  • Presenting designs to team members and clients for approval
