Associate Creative Director (Client-Side) at MediaMonks LA
MediaMonks is seeking an Associate Creative Director to oversee design, art direction and animation teams on one of our largest, top-secret accounts. We are looking for a captain that will steer a creative vision for pitches and growth with one of our largest clients. While overseeing all creative operations, this key leadership role will produce digital advertising assets that require our in-house teams to deliver quality x quantity. We’re looking for someone that can steer teams of makers with confidence, creativity and craft.
- In this key role, you’ll be working on a global scale to create effective digital advertising content in partnership with our biggest global client.
- Working as part of a dedicated unit within MediaMonks, you’ll be in a unique position to lead creative processes and pitches across the entire account, taking on campaigns big, small and huge.
- You’re responsible for the creation and execution of the high-output and high-stakes campaigns we create in incredibly short amounts of time, directing design, animation and illustration across teams and time zones. You know how to manage creative operations that deliver large scale transcreated assignments.
- You’ll be presenting to the client in person and through video calls, pitching for new projects or running workshops to collect new insights and ideas.
- You identify what needs to be done on a creative level so that our PMs and producers can book sufficient time to make your projects shine.
- Setting creative and technical standards to determine the best tools and techniques to use is essential.
- You’ll translate creative concepts into thorough briefs for our in-house designers and animators.
- For some projects you direct the visual style, for other projects, you help safeguard predefined ones.
- You’ll produce creative proposals, sketches and mockups to kickstart new assignments.
- You help to make sure all work is conceptually in line with the campaign’s objectives and client expectations.
- You look after the execution of the concept and help to improve the work by offering new angles, inspiration, best practices and practical solutions — guaranteeing projects meet the creative standards MediaMonks is famed for.
- You shepherd a team of junior, medium and senior creative talent and help build great career paths.
- You must have 6 - 10 years of experience designing, leading/managing a team of designers, and at least 5 or more years of client facing experience with deep familiarity of advertising and tech industry.
- You’re looking for high-quality projects, not prestige: your work will be seen by millions but we can’t brag about it.
- You’re equally capable and confident in dealing with high-end brands.
- You have a comprehensive understanding of creative and design work streams and how we can continue to improve both going forward.
- You have experience directing digital design, animation and illustration.
- You’re skilled in creating concepts for display advertising and social (content) campaigns using images, animation and video.
- Your pitch skills are as great as your concepting skills: you know how to make a case and sell people on an idea through beautifully designed presentation decks.
- You have the ability and stamina to tackle the same challenge from a wide variety of angles.
- You can produce concepts from scratch and enhance ideas provided by clients and colleagues.
- You’re a team player with leadership skills: you can keep a cool head when things get heated and are great at dealing with (stressed-out) clients and coworkers.
- You know how to maintain a positive vibe and inspire people to get things done, wherever they are in the world.
- If you can also throw in some illustration and/or animation skills, that’d be a great nice-to-have.
