A Hundred Years is looking for a versatile, imaginative Art Director to join our team. This is a long-term contract position located at our studio in Downtown Los Angeles.

Great Art Directors understand the emotional impact of design. They understand how to bring together typography, color, photography, and other graphic elements into a vision that captures the spirit and strategy of a project. Their eye for detail and their ability to understand the whole are equally important.

  • Work as a close collaborator with a project team of strategists, producers, creatives, and business owners
  • Lead/participate in strategic planning, brainstorming, concept development and concept refinement sessions
  • Rapidly visualize creative concepts
  • Design and deliver client presentations; help build strong client relationships
  • Art direct designers and photographers

Qualifications

  • 6+ years experience in a creative design role
  • Strong graphic design and typographic skills executed digitally and traditionally
  • A track record in communications and brand design, with multi-channel executions
  • A vivid portfolio with relevant work samples
  • Has held a client-facing role on multi-faceted projects, can present and articulate design decisions
  • Can work independently and problem solve collaboratively
  • Strong work ethic and attention to details and deadlines
  • Bachelor's degree in a design-related field, or similar training
