Our team is looking for an art director. Someone who loves the work – and making the work, work. Mediocrity just isn’t an option. Interested in helping develop a growing team of designers? We’re talking to you. Someone with passion and drive to create brave brands and boundary-pushing concepts that deliver, and inspire their teammates along the way.

  • Someone who elevates their creative partner's work – and vice versa
  • A strategy-minded creative who loves to get inside their audience's heads and build creative with measurable intention
  • A curious self-starter who sees opportunities in projects big and small
  • Someone who knows how to sell the heck out of the work, to peers and clients
  • Not a stranger to client marketing plans and business strategies – and how to factor them into creative
  • Skilled at digesting internal and client feedback, and making magic happen
  • An angle identifier. A thought leader. Able to leverage experience, intuition, and strategy to uncover untapped and unseen opportunities to solve big problems in real ways
  • A collaborator. Someone who inspires others to dig deeper, push harder
  • Forever a student of your craft, always honing those skills

What you'll do:

  • Lead design direction, in addition to executing design, for a variety of materials across branding and campaign projects
  • Partner with a copywriter and extended team members to concept at a high level, and work with the broader creative team to bring vision to reality
  • Make sure all dots across creative connect – from design to copy, video to social and back – and the goals of the brief are met
  • Provide actionable and constructive feedback to a rad team of designers
  • Drive production phase standards – making sure all work is proofed, on-brand, on-goal, and up to par
  • Ensure best practices, while always looking for ways to improve and innovate process
  • Be present for client meetings and presentations, and pitch creative
  • Be a mentor to junior members of the design team

What you have:

  • Make the slickest looking decks and proposals in the (mid)west
