Our client is a global design agency seeking a Senior Art Director to join their team on a temp-to-perm basis starting in March or April 2018.

The Senior Art Director will be working within a team of 5 designers and an Associate Art Director. Projects will focus mainly on CPG food and beverage clients.

The Senior Art Director will be responsible for leading this team, presenting to clients, organizing projects, etc. (there is no account management team internally so this is why you'll have to speak directly to clients yourself).

The Senior Art Director will come up with brand concepts and territories and in turn, break down the brand world before moving into execution. This will involve guiding the design team on how to create the designs in a way that stays true to the brand. All final project deliverables will be packaging designs (but packaging experience is not a requirement for this position). You will just be involved in the concepting of these designs and helping to create different skews and versions of each of them.

- 5+ years of branding design + art direction experience
- Experience working on CPG brands is a bonus!
- Packaging design experience is a plus (but not required)
- MUST be comfortable presenting to clients and designing presentations
- Ability to manage and lead a team
- Portfolio MUST showcase original graphics and a strong understanding of hierarchy of information.
- Ability to version out different skews of designs
- Proficiency in the Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Photoshop
