Associate Creative Director/Art

Let’s be honest, everyone wants to be a CD. Just imagine the chance to stand in front of a brick wall with your arms folded in every agency photo op.

The endless meetings. The managing of egos. The endless meetings. It’s all gold. But, how about a gig that cuts down on the meetings and allows you to have the best part of the CD title – mentoring creatives while still doing the work that you love?

Here at Paradowski we’re unlike most agencies. To be honest the CD role is pretty much the opposite of what was described in the above snarky paragraph. Sure, there’s meetings, but we’ve found a way to minimize them. But this isn’t about our CDs, it’s about you, our new associate creative director.

What are you looking for? Let’s do away with the B.S. that usually fills these job postings. Let’s be honest.

Are you someone who is constantly curious? Do you love seeing an idea all the way through from concept to production? Are you someone who knows that selling work well is the real key to getting great work done? Are you someone that has a sincere desire to help others succeed and in doing so make our agency a great place to work?

If you’ve got 6-8 years of design/ art direction experience, a portfolio that demonstrates the appropriate level of craftsmanship with a little management experience thrown in, we’d love to talk.
