We are seeking an Art Director who will be a key design leader for our LA office. We want to welcome someone who is as comfortable executing design as they are mentoring designers. Someone who loves to learn new tools and skills and wants to help land and expand Appnovation’s presence in the LA design community.
As Art Director, you are comfortable leading the conceptual development and execution of creative deliverables, across all visual media types, but with a strong focus on digital experience and product design. You are driven by a passion for design and visual communication and see it as a powerful communication tool that can solve complex client problems. The form follows the function – we don’t prescribe a solution; we diagnose the problems faced and propose the right solution to fix them.
You will create and communicate concepts, participate in developing marketing strategies, lead business development pitches to win the hearts of clients, and will execute and oversee interactive design solutions. You should be completely at ease presenting to senior clients, participating in workshops, and comfortable switching conversations from branding to UI design to typography to poster art.
Balancing creative thinking with interpersonal skills, you champion creative concepts to clients and project teams alike with a balanced understanding of creativity’s role in our clients’ commercial success.
You want to keep learning, but you want leadership experience, too. You’ll report to our Creative Director whose mandate will be to grow your career and expand your leadership experience as you also lead and mentor our team that includes design across UX and UI, copywriters, research, and, content strategy.
At Appnovation, our methodology is user first. That means we don’t let design preferences interrupt design efficacy. The solution that works best is best and results are the most important metric.
Appnovation is a global agency with distributed teams, so you will need to be comfortable working with and mentoring remote design resources.
