Dovetail, a specialized branding communications agency, is searching for a new Designer-Art Director with a passion for integrating thoughtful creative with strategy to develop smart, effective work for clients in our practice areas such as Healthcare, Financial, Higher Education and Destination.

Here are a few things you’ll need to be considered:

  • You’re a contributor. You add value. You know when to speak up and share ideas. You care about typography and kerning. You don’t give up easily when things get tough. You care about the details. You stay up to date with industry trends and software. You learn things on your own and share and inspire the team. Your energy is contagious.
  • You have a proactive personality. This is a big one. We’re looking for a person that’s eager to help team members, keep schedules moving and make our collective work even stronger.
  • Being flexible is cool with you. Our business first and foremost is about helping our clients succeed. Sometimes unexpected projects come up and what you planned to work on Monday looks different by Wednesday. Ok, maybe it even looks different by the end of the day Monday. 
  • You have a no fear attitude: We have some clients with pretty complex subject matter to communicate. Rest assured you won’t have to go at it alone, but being a quick study will be an advantage.
  • Strong communication skills with the ability to articulate your thinking in person and on paper.
  • You have a diverse skill set. We work in a lot of channels, doing everything from driving brand awareness to creating conversions on a website. You could be helping concept a TV spot one day and working on a digital assignment the next. Being well rounded will help you stand out.
  • You know how to bring concepts and ideas to life through great design.
  • You’re confident but don’t let your ego get in the way of great collaboration.
