Conceptual Art Director - Richmond

Conceptual Art Director Wanted. Emphasis on conceptual.  

We’re assuming you already know your way around the Adobe Creative Suite. You know the intricacies of type design and appreciate the nuances of kerning and leading by hand as opposed to by computer. Heck, you probably recreated a Gutenberg Press in your basement. You understand color theory, photography composition and are the person everyone at a cocktail party avoids speaking to about the pros and cons of The Golden Ratio Theory. You are comfortable with all forms of content creation. Motion graphics is second nature. Your Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram posts are the envy of your creative friends, and totally confuse your parents.  

OK. You know how to make things look pretty, but can you concept?  

Can you take two abstract ideas and bring them together in a new and unexpected way? Can you take a strategy and wrestle it to within an inch of its life? Can you pull an insight out of the bowels of focus group consumer research and come out the other side with a creative solution that makes a difference and is inspiring enough to change consumer perspective and behavior?  

Well then, we’ve been looking for someone like you. Someone who can help us build a place where everyone can reach their maximum human potential. Interested in joining our little work in progress?

Please submit portfolio link and resume to ndp Creative Recruiter.

Conceptual Advertising Copywriter - Chattanooga

Copywriter(s) wanted to write their own job description.

We tried to write a job description that would capture the true essence of what we were looking for, but kept coming up a bit short. Everything felt too straightforward. Too traditional. Too uninspiring. Too clichéd. Too normal. Too much like every other job description out there. Nothing seemed to capture our spirit or imagination. So we thought, instead of writing a job description for what we wanted, why not get the writer we were looking for to write a job description of what they wanted?

What kind of a place do they want to work for? What kind of a place do they want to help build? What kind of work do they want to do? Maybe they want to come here and become an award winning writer. Maybe they’re already an award winning writer that wants to take their craft and skill to the next level? Maybe they want to make a name for themselves by doing something no one else ever has. Maybe they don’t care about awards or ads or social media or digital or marketing in general, but they do care about writing.

It’s in their blood. It’s their passion. It’s what they were born to do. The fact that they’re in advertising may only be to pay the bills. They care so much that maybe the job description they write won’t be a job description at all. After all, who wants a job? Maybe the job description they write helps us realize that what we were looking for isn’t a writer at all, but someone who is passionate about their art and craft and wants to push themselves as much as we want to push ourselves. That would be a pretty cool job description. Let us know what you think you want your next job to be. We’ll let you know if we can make it happen.

Conceptual Advertising Copywriter - Richmond

Copywriter(s) wanted to write their own job description.

We tried to write a job description that would capture the true essence of what we were looking for, but kept coming up a bit short. Everything felt too straightforward. Too traditional. Too uninspiring. Too clichéd. Too normal. Too much like every other job description out there. Nothing seemed to capture our spirit or imagination. So we thought, instead of writing a job description for what we wanted, why not get the writer we were looking for to write a job description of what they wanted?

What kind of a place do they want to work for? What kind of a place do they want to help build? What kind of work do they want to do? Maybe they want to come here and become an award winning writer. Maybe they’re already an award winning writer that wants to take their craft and skill to the next level? Maybe they want to make a name for themselves by doing something no one else ever has. Maybe they don’t care about awards or ads or social media or digital or marketing in general, but they do care about writing.

It’s in their blood. It’s their passion. It’s what they were born to do. The fact that they’re in advertising may only be to pay the bills. They care so much that maybe the job description they write won’t be a job description at all. After all, who wants a job? Maybe the job description they write helps us realize that what we were looking for isn’t a writer at all, but someone who is passionate about their art and craft and wants to push themselves as much as we want to push ourselves. That would be a pretty cool job description. Let us know what you think you want your next job to be. We’ll let you know if we can make it happen.
