Senior Art Director
April 28th, 2021


Job Description

We are a small, fast-paced internal Creative Team who takes responsibility and ownership in creating high caliber creative for a beloved brand. We are here to provide strategically sound, breakthrough creative solutions for many different audiences through a variety of platforms; from digital to print to in-theatre signage.

You are a creative storyteller with experience in making visually dynamic and compelling designs. You are an outstanding graphic designer and photo art director who is comfortable with creating a large volume and variety of content and eager to explore strategic visual storytelling on multiple platforms.

You're a team player. You’re a great listener, open to feedback and able to take the creative vision and bring it to life. You’re low ego and don’t fall in love with your own ideas, and instead have a strong desire to push them. You require very little oversight and you rarely need someone to feed you the idea. You’re an idea machine.

You design with energy and passion for your craft. Creativity in design, a love for photography, type, color, composition is your life and you inspire the creative team with your energy and ambition. You’re a master of all things digital. You know all the ins and outs and can provide insights on a regular basis but you also have a general knowledge of print production.

You create strategically. You have the ability to see a vision while meeting customer and business needs. Delivering amazing work that generates results and compels action is your target.

You are organized, methodical, and timely. You should be able to meet or exceed all creative expectations for deliverables, estimates for projects. You can work within deadlines, briefs, and creative direction, as well as outside vendors such as stylists, photographers and agencies as needed.

You’re an experienced and motivated talent and you have the hybrid skill sets to show for it: Digital, print, animation and you have the technical acumen for capturing, editing, and producing impactful creative that engage the customer.

You are a natural leader and self-starter who will create projects and have a polished visual aesthetic that's fun and energetic. You do not require much oversight, you’re a thinker with a growth mindset. You are proactive and come to the table with ideas and improvements. You’re a quick problem-solver and unbelievably creative. You are constantly keeping up with new trends in digital and social channels.

You’re passionate about the movies and follow what’s going on in the entertainment industry on a regular basis. You can create lemonade out of lemons and you always do it with a smile and enthusiasm.
