Art Director

We’re looking for an Art Director that brings strange and unexpected ideas to life.

Beginning sentences with “I have a crazy idea but hear me out…” is a great start; your expertise is in the big idea. Working with a copywriter, you’ll pitch ideas and develop overarching campaigns that span all forms of media. You’ll work hand in hand with our designers to set the direction and tone of new campaigns. And you’ll pick up the baton on campaigns currently alive in the wild and move them forward with new executions.

lookthinkmake combines big concepts, gutsy executions and smart design to tell our clients’ narratives by illuminating on the aspects of their business that set them apart. We offer a wide range of services yet our team remains tight.. We thrive on ideas that feed our souls and serve our clients. You’ll work with pretty much every person in our office on a variety of projects: campaigns, websites, social media, physical & digital collateral, events, and branding.

Here’s how we’d like you to describe you: when it comes to a campaigns you think in big overarching ideas. You revel in abstract situations and conversations. You’re constantly thinking “what if?” You’re always wondering and wandering; curiosity is a way of life. You’re frequently the friend saying, “Have you guys seen this?!” You think beyond layout and design and can work well with the design team allowing their expertise to elevate an idea. Adaptability and Flexibility are your middle names. At least one of your fingers is a sharpie that can’t stop doodling ideas. You’re equal parts goofy and studious. You’re comfortable and professional in front of a client. And finally, you appreciate and love the journey of the creative process as much as the destination.
