Junior Art Director

Overview

Ogilvy's award-winning Content & Social Team is on the lookout for a highly conceptual Art Director. Candidates will have a solid portfolio demonstrating a firm understanding of storytelling and big ideas that engage digital audiences. You are a creative problem solver who yearns to make content that people want to share. You live and breathe in the social Web, established platforms and emerging trends in technology. You nerd-out proudly on the intricacies of human behavior, pop culture, and want to make a difference in the world. You have a driving passion for creating social change and helping solve the world's problems – whether it's eradicating poverty, championing disaster preparedness or getting people to think differently about their healthcare. At the same time, you can come up with fresh content ideas for milkshakes, burgers and booze. If you're the epitome of all of the above (and below), let's chat.

Responsibilities

You have a refined design eye, know how to tastefully use typography, and always strive towards excellence in your craft. You can demonstrate your passion to solve complex communication challenges in a fast-paced environment through strategy, concept and a deep understanding of how to exceed audiences' expectations and engage them on behalf of our clients. If your portfolio showcases strong design and an extensive background crafting intuitive and innovative digital experiences, we want to talk to you.
