We believe in the power of creativity: creativity that makes people think, feel, and then act.
Creativity brimming with bravery and vision, heart and humor, imagination and truth.
We believe that brands should stand for more than what they’re selling.
With culture as our playground and emotion as our craft, we help our clients change minds, win hearts, and create memories.
We believe that good people are the key to creating great work. Our halls are filled with passionate thinkers and makers, seasoned experts and rising stars, who unleash each other’s brilliance and celebrate every win as a team.
Together, we bring ideas from the page into the world, ideas that are so audacious, so original, so meaningful that they couldn’t come from you or me - only we.
WE ARE TMA. CREATIVITY THAT MATTERS.
We’re looking for a Junior Art Director to help us design the future of social media.
Do you love all things digital and design related? Do you spend more time on a mobile screen than a TV screen? Do you have strong opinions on the pronunciation – and optimal design – of “GIF”. Do killer digital campaigns make you equal parts jealous and inspired to push the boundaries of your own work? If the answer’s “yes”, then you could be the Junior Art Director that TMA is looking for.
The perfect fit:
You’re a visionary and an image conjurer. A hands-on designer who can concept the unexpected and then bring it to life with exceptional polish and pop. You make art that dazzles with strategy that sells. You search for inspiration, you learn from others, you envy industry greats, and you become better every day. You keep your antennas up for all art and culture. You wear many hats, you wear many shoes, and you paint with many brushes. Criticism rolls off your back, because you’re a pro and at the end of the day you know it’s all about the work, and never about yourself.
The team: Dynamic as a team, agile for our clients, and dangerous to our competition. We’re a motivated and collaborative team bursting with passion, and in our world big ideas rule. Every day, we push the ideas, push each other, and push ourselves to deliver work that matters.
Always wanted to try your hand in brainstorming? Trendwatching? Presenting to clients? In this role you’ll see it all: no part of the process is off-limits and we hold each other accountable at every level. When we win, we win together.
As a part of our team, you’ll get all the perks of a big agency with the close-knit feel of a small core team. And with team members in NYC, Chicago, Dallas, and California, you’ll be dialed into a larger community with endless opportunities.
The Junior Art Director we’re looking for will work with a team of creatives to concept and execute social media campaigns for one of the world’s largest brands. Content is king. You’ll be creating original campaigns as well as those that lean into existing sponsorships with NASCAR and famous athletes. Instagram, Facebook and beyond – you are up to date in the latest developments from all the important platforms and also the ones we’ve never heard of… yet. Every day is a little different but most days involve some of the following
Creating pixel-perfect creative, under direction from Senior Art Director and Creative Director, for our client’s social media initiatives
Creative will range from concepting social media content and videos to big idea development
Partnering with a copywriter to concept, craft, and manage assignments
Knowledgeable of cultural, design, social media, and digital trends
Building partnerships and collaborating with teammates and clients
Demonstrating knowledge of the category our clients operate in and in the competitive landscape
Seeing projects through––from concept to launch
2-4 years of agency experience as an art director or designer at a digital agency, social media agency, or content agency
Bachelor’s degree in a directly related field (advertising, graphic design, digital media)
Experience in social media is required
Strong problem-solving, communications, and relationship-building skills
Proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign CS5 or above
Knowledge of PowerPoint and Keynote a plus
Portfolio with examples of big ideas, social media campaigns, inventive solutions for brands, and passion projects (we all need a side hustle)
