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 Senior Art Director to help us design the future of retail.
If you’re the kind of creative that rolls their eyes at retail creative, thank you and goodbye. If, on the other hand, you’re the type of forward-thinking design guru that rightly sees retail as the final frontier in advertising, and an opportunity to create breakthrough, original works of art at the moment of truth, well hello there and nice to meet you.
The perfect fit:
You’re a visionary and an image conjurer. A hands-on creator 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 & 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 Senior Art Director we’re looking for will work with a team of creatives, strategists and account people to concept and execute digital, print and social creative for some of the most recognized CPG and luxury spirits brands in the world. Every day is a little different but most days involve some of the following:
Collaborating with integrated team to create a high volume of creative work on time, on budget and on point
Presenting to a passionate group of clients with conviction, confidence and swagger
Managing and providing direction to Art Directors and Copywriters
Pitching in on new business initiatives and agency creative communications
Participating in brainstorms for activations and promotions, then translating that thinking into beautiful pitch decks
Being a source of positivity, inspiration, creativity and fun
5-7+ years of agency experience as a graphic designer or art director
Bachelor’s degree in a directly related field (advertising, graphic design, visual arts, etc.).
Strong problem-solving, presentation, and relationship-building skills
Experience collaborating with other designers, copywriters, production and account teams
Self-motivation and ability to creatively and strategically solve multiple problems at once, under quick deadlines.
Ability to brainstorm in groups and develop ideas from beginning to end.
Proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign CS5 or above.
Knowledge of PowerPoint and Keynote a plus.
Solid portfolio, available online.
Bonus points for Swiss-army creatives who can shoot, edit or code
