Join the Team
Can you imagine yourself at the heart of a fun and future-focused team creating business-shifting ideas for homegrown brands? If so, SRH may be just the place for you. Check out our current opportunities below.
Start Date: ~ July 2023
We're seeking an Art Director to continue our legacy of excellence. Do you have a knack for making the ordinary extraordinary, and the extraordinary even more so? Are you able to translate paralyzing industry jargon into bold creative ideas for our clients' point by point and say, "Th-th-that -- there! That's it!"?
If you have a passion for design, an eye for detail, and a knack for pushing boundaries beyond craft, we want to hear from you!
As our Art Director, you'll be responsible for working with our creative team in developing innovative concepts and designs across a range of media. You’ll also work with the design team to get those ideas out into the world as finished pieces. From digital campaigns, print ads, video treatments, experiential activations and more, you'll have the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting projects that will challenge and inspire you.
To excel in this role, you should have:
A strong portfolio that showcases your creative vision and demonstrates your ability to translate ideas into compelling designs. Bonus for weird stuff.
An ability to think outside the box (while still acknowledging the box, and even celebrating the box on occasion).
A deep, geeky understanding of design principles and the ability to apply them in fresh ways.
Experience inspiring your teammates and collaborating effectively on brief.
A willingness to experiment and take risks, as well as a drive to continuously improve your skills.
Basically, be an art astronaut, and a kind, adventurous one at that. (Notice we did not say Rock Star, because there is no way you can go on tour anymore.)
5+ years of agency experience as designer/art director
Experience with final production efforts and best practices
3+ years of formal higher ed designer training (a degree is a plus)
Ability to work autonomously and be accountable to teams and deadlines is a must
Live in the Milwaukee Metro area
Full vaccination and booster for the Coronavirus
Full health and dental insurance
15 days of PTO in your first year
5 sick/mental health days
COME AS YOU ARE
SRH believes creativity is born out of diverse perspectives and backgrounds. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex and country of origin.
There’s much more, but if you’ve read any job descriptions for an Art Director, you know the drill. Help us bridge the gap between strategy and production in visionary ways that speak to our inner klang.
