As chance would have it, we have an empty chair.
But this isn’t just any chair.
It’s a chair that’s absolutely perfect for an art director. Not because it’s a stunning example of modern industrial design. It’s actually a rather basic one with black poly-blend upholstery, rubber armrests and a finicky pneumatic action.
It’s perfect for an art director because it sits across from a senior copywriter/creative director and next to an insanely talented studio and web team.
Mind you, this chair’s not right for any old art director. The art director that lowers him or herself into this chair every morning, double espresso in hand, must have well over a decade of brand-building experience, a track-record of strong digital work, and the leadership chops to inspire great work in those around them. We’re talking about an art director who is more ACD material, really.
This unpretentious but mostly adequate chair is one of about 20 or so occupied at Trampoline. The people here are a motley group of marketing, design, social, and interactive folk, with client and agency experience from across the country. We have an enviable client list, a great space, and an espresso machine. We have no cubicles, no patience for weak ideas, and no time for drama. We’re a boutique with the energy of a startup, because we’re always reinventing how marketing is done.
This lonely, unassuming chair overlooks historic and gritty Barrington Street, in downtown Halifax. As an art director, this is where you want to be. Halifax is a small but mighty city. Take the urban energy of Toronto, the coastal cool of Vancouver, and Montreal’s affinity for nightlife, and jam it all into a city you can walk across in under half an hour. The beaches aren’t far away either.
So here’s the thing. We don’t want this chair to stay empty much longer. Drop us a line and let us know why you’re the brain to fill it.
