Honest Agency is looking for an Art Director
Our clients expect great things, so we’re looking for an Art Director who can help us be great, inside and out, every time.
At Honest, we create brands that people love. We do that by understanding our clients’ motivations and by working with them to align their operations, culture, and reputation, so they can build brand integrity and trust.
Our Art Director creates, maintains or grows that brand integrity in all brand applications. They are responsible for developing or fostering original creative concepts and approaches; and overseeing all creative operations.
Our ideal candidate has the skills, knowledge, and experience to create and support excellence within the parameters of any project; and the expertise to make recommendations above and beyond.
This person will oversee the design team and orchestrate their work, and the work of our external supplier partners: photographers, videographers, printers, programmers and others. They establish and direct the activities of creative staff to maintain our standards of excellence, timeliness, and profitability while achieving the clients’ goals.
The Art Director leads brainstorming sessions, conceptualizes ideas, assigns projects to the creative team and works with Project and Account Managers to ensure deadlines are met and internal workflow runs smoothly.
Our Art Director is the creative lead for the agency, inspiring outstanding and effective creativity. As a member of the Management Team, they support and ensure collaboration and teamwork. They support the Account/Project Manager in managing the client relationship for all things related to creative, they are a senior-level client advisor and an excellent and experienced presenter.
Because we marry strategic planning and branding for our clients, our Art Director will need a solid brand background. A lot of our clients like outstanding print executions in their portfolios, so strong print knowledge is an asset, as is photography direction. Of course, fierce attention to detail in all media is required.
At Honest, we look for people who take their work seriously, but not themselves; people who can remain open to new ideas and encourage one another. The way we see it, our clients do great things and we love to help them do it, greatly.
If this sounds like a role that’s made for you, we want to meet you.
Send your resume and portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before March 31.
