Position Details

Art Director
Southeast Wisconsin
Milwaukee, WI

Start Date: July 2023

We're seeking an Art Director to continue our legacy of excellence. Do you have a knack for making the ordinary extraordinary, and the extraordinary even moreso? Are you able to translate paralyzing industry jargon into bold creative ideas our clients point at point and say, "Th-th-that -- there! That's it!"?

If you have a passion for design, an eye for detail, and the drive to push boundaries beyond craft, we want to hear from you! As our Art Director, you'll be responsible for working with our creative team in developing innovative concepts and designs across a range of media. You’ll also work with the design team to get those ideas out into the world as finished pieces. From digital campaigns, print ads, video treatments, experiential activations and more, you'll have the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting projects that will challenge and inspire you.

To excel in this role, you should have:

  • A strong portfolio that showcases your creative vision and demonstrates your ability to translate ideas into compelling designs. Bonus for weird stuff.
  • An ability to think outside the box (while still acknowledging the box, and even celebrating the box on occasion).
  • A deep, geeky understanding of design principles and the ability to apply them in fresh ways.
  • Experience inspiring your teammates and collaborating effectively on-brief.
  • A willingness to experiment and take risks, as well as a drive to continuously improve your skills.
  • Basically, be an Art Astronaut, and a kind, adventurous one at that. (Notice we did not say Rock Star, because there is no way you can go on tour anymore.)

This postion requires:

  • 5+ years of agency experience as designer/art director
  • Experience with final production efforts and best practices 
  • 3+ years of formal higher ed designer training (a degree is a plus)
  • Ability to work autonomously and be accountable to teams and deadlines is a must
  • Live in the Milwaukee Metro area
  • Full vaccination and booster for the Coronavirus

Please include salary requirements in your cover letter.

Benefits include:

  • Full health and dental insurance
  • Bonus potential
  • 401K match
  • 15 days of PTO in your first year
  • 5 sick days
  • Paid holidays
  • Summer hours
