Location: San Francisco, CAAssociate Creative Director
Right brainer, left brainer – no brainer! Your desk sits at the intersection of big ideas and even bigger
results; you’re just as excited about seeing things happen as you are about dreaming and drawing them up.
And we need you to inspire some folks here in our San Francisco office.
As Associate Creative Director, you’re a leader that follows the burgeoning trends in the industry
while inspiring your colleagues to think bigger. We’ll expect you to help develop creative efforts that
align with business strategy, IA/technical specifications, usability requirements, and quality assurance…
not to mention our clients’ needs and expectations. By encouraging collaboration between disciplines,
you’ll assist your peers in other departments with the growth of our business across all assigned accounts.
Now, we want you because you bring brilliant art and conceptual direction to the table.
But you’ve also got to have an eye for what’s hot and happening outside the conference room
in terms of emerging trends in the social/viral space as well as new technologies.
You’ll manage time and people across various projects at all times, so your calendar is your best friend.
Your presentation skills are top notch. And Photoshop? You fiddle with it in your sleep. Most of all,
you should know your way around mentoring and advising a motley crew of other creative team
members – their ideas and contributions will be your biggest project.
