Art Director/Digital Designer – Smiths Agency

MUST HAVE AGENCY EXPERIENCE

We are looking for a motivated, hands-on Art Director who is not only talented, but fast. This position is a mid-level opportunity that requires a solid understanding of marketing and creative strategy, and how to tell a rich brand story in all media — but with particular focus on digital media.

We’re looking for a real pro who’s obsessed with quality but recognizes we’re in a deadline-driven business and embraces the pressure to deliver. We’re looking for a leader-in-the-making who’s inspired to create great work and inspires others with the example they set along the way.

We would prefer a colleague who actively keeps up on current trends and technologies. To be clear: while we don’t expect you to know how to code, you actively keep up on best practices to ensure that you have an enthusiastic and strong understanding of the web – and digital – as a medium. This includes not only a good design sense but also an understanding of the impact design has on accessibility, site performance, UX, and responsive design.

The Art Director / Digital Designer we’re looking for will have both serious conceptual chops and be detail oriented. They will own their projects from concept through final execution, recognizing it’s up to them to protect the integrity of their visual ideas (and the overall aesthetic of their work) to the end. They will be expected to effectively present, and more importantly sell creative work to clients and internal stakeholders.

As a vital part of their job, our new Art Director / Digital Designer will also provide art direction and leadership to designers and project teammates. We will count heavily on them to participate in new business pitches. Finally, they will acknowledge that creating killer business-driving ideas and executing flawlessly for national and regional Food and Beverage brands can and should lead to awards, but that the single-minded pursuit of awards isn’t in the client’s, nor therefore the agency’s, interest.

  • Understands design standards for mobile and touch devices. Also a clear understanding of what “Mobile-First” actually means.

  • Design in a variety of styles

Junior Graphic Designer – Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine is an advertising agency. We make ads. Ads are those things that you’ve trained your whole life for; to count out 5 paces and then hit the skip button with the speed and precision of a young Doc Holiday. Your job at Yellow Sub will be to make ads so compelling that other YouTube hair-triggers just like you will forget to skip …or at least get them to watch 15 seconds of your brilliance.

You’ll also be responsible for designing logos, websites, brochures, animations, and even print ads, yes, they still make those. That’s a lot of responsibilities. But as the saying goes, “with great responsibility comes great power”…or is it the other way around? The good news is you don’t really need to worry about how the saying goes. You’ll be working alongside a talented copywriter who will sweat the dumb details, like words.

If the list of responsibilities made you squirm, that’s okay. We’re looking for a junior designer and realize you may not have experience in all those categories. What we’re really looking for is talent. If you have that, we can help you with the rest.

Looking for someone with:

  • A genuine passion for art
  • 1-2 years of design experience
  • Skills in graphic design and illustration
  • Bonus points for coding, animation or editing

Please have your portfolio ready to share.
