The Creative Director position at our agency client requires design experience, is dynamic, collaborative, calls for good interpersonal skills, and a keen business sense. One day you may be art directing a photo shoot, the next you may be inspiring team members in a brainstorming session. The following day may include hands on creative execution followed by budget planning.
This agency acts as a family; “Our interactions must be underscored with respect, communication, and sometimes forgiveness.” There is no communication hierarchy, everyone must work towards positive interaction, mentoring one another (everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn), and supporting one another during good and “challenging” days.
The Creative Director will use their strong interpersonal skills as the Creative Ambassador for the agency nurturing and supporting design initiatives with clients and team members. As an Ambassador of the agency the Creative Director is also expected to participate in new business efforts and ensure strong client relations on their own, and in tandem with project management team members.
This position requires management and business experience. It has multiple senior reports and will partner with the seniors to manage a growing number of design team members. As such it requires a background mentoring people and leading by example and through written and verbal direction, and allocating workflow to maximize team resources and morale. Additionally, this position is responsible for estimating design project and operational costs accurately, the overall profitability of the design team, and, in tandem with the Account Director, a profitable margin for the agency.
We are looking for design experience and creative passion. Experience is necessary, creative curiosity probably comes naturally to you. This is a team member with a history in design that encompasses art direction in graphic and digital design. Supportive problem solving based on past success and failures, transparency, group/team thinking.
