Description
Creative Directors:
My crew and I here at The Creative Group in Austin are in literal, dire need of an Associate Creative Director (or, perhaps a Senior Art Director) to fill a gaping hole in our client?s growing agency team.

This is a direct-hire Associate Creative Director position of creative process from initial ideation, creative direction, through to final execution. Working closely with the Creative Director, a team of designers, producers and creative strategist, you will have the unique opportunity to lead and drive a creative team to consistently elevate their work.

Picture it?you?re working as a full-time ACD employee on a warm and sunny day in Austin eating your BBQ stuffed avocados (or whatever, stay with me) from the food truck down the street, and you?ve just realized you have money in your HSA that you can use for that [fill in the blank] AND use some of that PTO to take that vaca up to [fill in the blank] over that long holiday weekend where the holiday falls on a Monday, and you now have off because you?re a full-time employee making an annual salary!...you get it.

Here?s what our client wants from an Associate Creative Director in cold, straight-forward, plain-text English (ish) in order, the best I can tell (I just edited this exhaustive list to the absolute peak of my late night capabilities):
(1) 5-7 years experience leading a creative team in the event design or experiential marketing field
(2) Strong ability to link creative process with the final recommendation to the client goals and aligning with the overall strategy of RFP/assignment
(3) Solid understanding of industry trends and creative tools
(4) Knowledge or understanding of tech industry
(5) Strong communication, problem-solving and project management skills
(6) Solid leadership and mentorship skills
(7) Experience working with high profile, innovative companies
(8) Strong design and graphic skills -- expertise in Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch-Up or other 3D program, Microsoft Office
(9) Proficiency in working with complex and detailed budgets
(10) Highly organized and deadline oriented competencies.
(11) Ease with interacting with clients and internal staff alike.
(12) A Bachelor?s degree.

?LOOK, that?s all ya need!
