Art Director - Lafayette American

Lafayette American is defining a new model for a creative agency -- one that relies on a core group of experts and a wide network of talent for bespoke project-to-project teams. 

We’re looking for an Art Director to create and execute digital, social and traditional marketing. The candidate must be able to think conceptually and be:

  • Insanely creative, as Lafayette American is a creative-driven shop

  • Self-motivated

  • Curious

This position reports to the Creative Director.


Responsibilities:

  • AD will be responsible for generating concepts for projects across multiple traditional, digital and social channels, and producing that work when approved

  • AD will partner with a CW but should be able to generate ideas on their own

  • AD should expect to present their work both internally and to clients

  • We’re a small (for now) shop, so the AD should also expect to work on presentation decks, both to sell their work as well as pitch new business

Skills / Qualifications:

  • 4+ years art direction in an agency

  • Strong design skills

  • Expertise with Adobe Creative Suite, Keynote, and Powerpoint

  • Knowledge in Adobe After Effects, motion and animation, as well as editing and video is a plus

  • Experience working across multiple media, including social and digital

  • Experience with presenting & producing your ideas

  • Must know how to interpret a creative brief

  • Must be a conceptual thinker

  • Detail oriented

  • Ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines

  • Current with trends in branding, marketing, and advertising

  • Operate with a high level of quality – strong attention to detail, thorough and accountable.

  • Effective communication – written, verbal, presentation, listening skills, and high EQ.

  • A team player – trustworthy, dedicated, and work with a “one team” mentality.

  • Possesses a strong work ethic – professional, motivated, and tenacious, with a burning, blinding, ambition to grow 

  • Entrepreneurial – problem solver, innovative, and strategic. Naturally digs deep for solutions whether small or large. 

  • Must be a kind human being
