Job Description

The Associate Creative Director at Article Group leads project teams through conception and delivery of compelling b2b technology marketing campaigns and content artifacts. You will have accountability for creative problem-solving and project-team leadership, while still contributing to client-facing deliverables in a “hands-on” manner.

You will help our clients and our team determine creative solutions per audience and marketing intent, ensuring that ideas are right, not merely good. You will ensure work products are coherent and beautiful across messaging and design, whether within a suite of campaign deliverables or as singular object. In close collaboration with strategy and account / engagement management disciplines, you will gracefully represent Article Group to clients and own accountability for creative decisions. 

You are capable of direct partnership with strategy and engagement leads to identify client problems and plan project level processes to tackle them. You can lead the creative effort by example as both a doer and delegator of tasks while giving concise actionable feedback to team members of all levels. Ultimately you are responsible for crafting and advocating for the integrity of the core creative vision with team members and clients.
