Creative Director

About us

We are a leading creative agency in the business of ideas that make people stop and take notice. We don’t view technology or digital as a team or division but as a way of thinking. We want someone else who believes this too and champions this in bold ways as we forge a path into the future.

Unerstanding the latest nuances in culture, pop culture, trends and influences is key to this role and we want to work with someone who is curious, creative and not afraid to share opinions that are dynamic, thought-provoking and challenge the status quo.

About you

You are a possibility thinker, and you focus on ‘what if’s and opportunities to do what has not been done before and you champion this kind of thinking in others. You don’t worry about how to do something, you focus on what hasn't been done before and If there is not an immediate solution, you look to find others to conspire with to make your ideas come to life.

Part inventor and part problem-solver, you look to put the human experience at the forefront of ideas that you come up with. Not limited to one medium, you champion the integration of multiple disciplines, recognizing that in the integrated world we live in, digital transcends a computer screen and is not in any way simply relegated to static online display ads or website design/development.

You define, create, design, describe, and passionately champion others to work in unconventional ways. You work collaboratively with a team of Creatives, Media Specialists, Search experts, and Social Media Specialists. You have the ability to make decisions based on data and instinct and bring forward ideas and solutions to problems that no one knew needed to be solved.
