Have what it takes to work for a family-friendly, iconic American brand?

A hardworking, personable bunch, this laid back shop generates big work for innovative brands; all with minimal bureaucracy and a family feel. A small enough agency to run a tight ship, but big enough to boast a diverse group of creative thinkers and makers.

This is an office where music is always playing, dogs are part of the culture, patio BBQs are the norm, and excessive imagination is a must.

A full-service creative agency, they’ve tackled everything from multi-channel campaign creation, to complex site and app builds, to fashion shoots and retouching. They like a good challenge, and have the creative resources to meet them.

Seeking a positive-minded, mid-level Art Director to add to the fold.

You’ll be responsible for adapting and conceptualizing brand ideas and designing for digital channels as well as traditional print, DM, OOH and beyond.

Mastery at using Adobe CS, as well as your thinking cap, is a must.  Working closely with Copywriters and Producers, you’ll manage projects from concept to completion. Considering the bulk of your attention will be on the Disney account, an active imagination and a belief in the magic of pixie dust would be ideal but open to any category assuming your work is top-notch. 3+ years of super hero design experience is preferred; agency experience required.
