We are seeking a Design Director who can serve a dual role—one part team leader, one part designer. This unique position requires a hands-on approach in both cases and a very agile mind who can balance fulfilling the needs of the department, the designers, and their individual workload simultaneously. Our design department is a fast-paced environment where creative artistry and strategic thinking drive everything we do.
As team leader, the Design Director will be responsible for sustaining and elevating the caliber of the visual design across all of our work. Responsibilities include art direction and mentoring as well as serving as a sounding board and inspiration for the entire team. This person will also be externally-facing and participate in key client meetings and creative presentations. The Design Director will be reporting to the Creative Director, and the two must have a very fluid and communicative relationship.
As a designer, the Design Director will be creating and producing design work and be serving as an additional powerhouse for the team. Projects range from identity, print and packaging to online advertising and websites with a large focus being the digital realm.
Candidates should be first and foremost creative problem solvers who can both express their own vision and elevate others. Deep interactive knowledge is highly valued. Agency and management experience are mandatory.
Competitive and commensurate with experience
All candidates should include a link to their portfolio or provide work samples as part of the application process. Please indicate your role and contribution for each project submitted.
