Arts & Letters is looking for an Art Director

Job Description

Arts & Letters is an independent creative company working in Advertising and Technology. We’ve solved some of the biggest problems for some of the world’s best companies and our collective lesson is that today’s modern clients need a creative partner built to work the way they do. So we’re fast. We create ideas the same way the best tech companies create products: quickly, iteratively, focused on an audience. We’re open. We involve everyone in the creative process. Some find this thrilling. Others find it terrifying. Everyone finds it valuable. Most importantly, we’re optimistic. We love to work with people who want to change things. Because we know things can change. Usually quicker than anyone ever thought possible.

An Art Director at A&L is…

A passionate conceptual thinker who can break through the abstraction of the world of never-ending decks with THE LOOK. Great art directors at A&L were world-class designers at other places with the ability to rally teams around the soul of a visual direction. They were also the best art directors at other places with an insane attention to craft. Whether they’ve cracked a global 00H campaign, tweaked a piece of product UI or even simply spacing in a presentation, they are on it. To them, everything matters, except the stuff that doesn’t. They are always fighting between the great expanse of creative exploration and the convergent squeeze of refinement. As a creatively-founded and creatively-led company, A&L fosters an environment for the world’s best visual thinkers to do what they do best: think visually. As a result, our art directors are bold, absurdly fast and believe that every now and then people need to stop talking and look around (sometimes at something they helped create).

To excel in this position you must have…

6+ years art directing and design experience in Advertising or Creative industries
Strong conceptual abilities
Good communication skills and attention to detail
Ability to be agile and a strong collaborator
Interest in and/ or knowledge of the technology sector
Excellent presentation skills
