Art Director

We’re looking for a hands-on Art Director that brings strange and unexpected ideas to life. You begin sentences with “I have a crazy idea but hear me out…” 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 and smart design to tell the narrative of a client by focusing on the aspects of their business that separate them from the crowd. We offer a wide range of services from a tight team. 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, videos, social media, physical & digital collateral, events, and branding.

Here’s how we’d like you to describe you: when it comes to campaigns you think in big overarching ideas. You think beyond layout and design and can work well with the design team, collaborating with their expertise to elevate an idea. You’re always wondering and wandering; curiosity is a way of life. Adaptability and Flexibility are your middle names. Doodling is second nature. You’re frequently the friend saying, “Have you guys seen this?!” You’re equal casual & fun with the team and comfortable & professional in front of a client.

If you’re still with us so far, check out the responsibilities and qualifications below:

Responsibilities:

• Create new campaign ideas, collateral, campaign executions, etc, partnered with a copywriter
• Build out campaign concept presentations with example/comp executions
• Develop new executions and collateral for ongoing projects in collaboration with the design team
• Assist in the production of meeting and presentation materials
• Contribute to the initial conceptual and ideation process
• Collaborate with design team on executions for everything from signage and event materials to books and brochures
• Attend client meetings

Qualifications:

• Strong portfolio of multi-faceted campaigns
• Minimum 3 years of experience as an Art Director
• Understanding of design principles
• Proficient in Adobe CS to build comps, (bonus if you have the ability to build press-ready files in a pinch)
• Great presentation skills
• Reliable time management and organizational skills

lookthinkmake is working remotely for the foreseeable future and may again establish an office in Austin, TX in 2021. Applicants in or willing to relocate to Austin, TX are preferable but not required.

Bonus points: Give us a few “what ifs” about what you hope this position could be. If the sky’s the limit, where would you want this role to take you and our team? What’s something non-traditional you’d hope to achieve in this position? Written or sketched ideas welcome.
