Over the past years our new business win rate has been ridiculous. We are bubbling over with fascinating clients and we need a senior level associate creative director who can meet the demands of our growing roster while helping redefine the work and workflow of the agency.

  • Working with account management and VP, CD when necessary, to distill the essence of an assignment into a bulletproof creative brief that leads to category changing, awesome work. 
  • Selling massive ideas to C-level suits. 
  • Contributing your own wordsmithing special sauce to the mix (player/coach). 
  • Always be thinking about what’s next. Ways to evolve and interrupt the norm of how we work.

  • Big-agency experience working on known broadcast brand campaigns, with a wide range of budgets.
  • Deep knowledge in TV production and able to guide the creative vision through production and post. 
  • Comfortable managing assignments, creatives and handling client meetings, presentations and production when necessary.
