The Art Director plays an essential role in growing talent in our business through collaboration and sharing best practices with the Creative team. You know how to be curious about their opportunities and how to be real with feedback and support.

The Art Director tracks creative initiatives from start to finish, with the ability to conceptualize, develop and produce unique, strategy-driven marketing collateral focused on brand values, advocacy and ethical campaigning. The Art Director would also be working with the Head of Creative and a large, cross-functional creative team in the conception, design and execution of visual materials across a range of platforms, including digital, broadcast and print. This is a hands-on role; the Art Director will be able to delve deep into the latest design software in order to deliver impactful creative and set the bar for a skilled team of creatives. We’re looking for a diverse skill set that will complement our branding initiatives as well as multi-platform solutions, with a detailed focus on design, film, photography, and digital. They are a great communicator, in every aspect — and able to pitch the ideas generated and work created, with a passion and drive to produce original and unique creative.

As a growing business, Lush needs people that can adapt and evolve to the needs of our business, analyze and respond to your learner’s needs. Our Lush staff live with purpose, finding their personal value connection with the values of our business, bringing their work and life paths into one holistic journey. #mylushlife
