Interactive Art Director

You soak up culture like a sponge. You’ve got style in spades. You follow (and often adopt) new technologies because, well, that’s what makes the world today interesting. You appreciate both the art and the business sides of marketing. And you make the designers around you better than they’ve ever been.

Modea is a young but growing digital agency. Just check INC Magazine’s list of the fastest growing privately owned companies (we’re on it) and Ad Age’s Small Agency Awards (we’re the agency of the year for Best Culture). But our growth and recognition hasn’t happened by accident. It’s the result of attracting and employing the industry’s most talented writers, developers, designers and thinkers. And that’s where you come in.

As Interactive AD, beyond the obvious (a stellar interactive design portfolio), you must have a very strong conceptual approach that leads to world-class, award-winning creative. We want to make the kind of things that cause both consumers and leaders in our industry to sit up and take notice, and that level of work is always born from big ideas. You’ll also need to be a strong leader—guiding the design team as you bring the creative concept to life, and ensuring that the team produces highly functional, beautifully elegant work. You’ll be a leader amongst a talented group of designers, and it’ll be your job to make them even better.

Responsibilities:

Lead, inspire, and direct designers

Guide conceptualization of projects

Help set the design direction and vision

Push the envelope, redefining what great design means to our agency

Deliver engaging presentations to both clients and team members

Stay on top of the latest trends in design and technology

Requirements:

Portfolio of relevant art direction work

Expert use of Photoshop and Illustrator

Strong understanding of web technologies such as HTML and Flash

Experience with interface design, designing for mobile, web app design, and other types of dynamic sites

Demonstrated work on large-scale projects

Deep understanding of user experience design, experience wireframing and prototyping

Five or more years as a designer or art director with an interactive agency

Knowledge of design principles, typography, and color theory

Strong conceptual thinker with the ability to articulate with the highest level of clarity

Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in design or related field of study

You must be authorized to work in the US full-time at our offices in Blacksburg, VA
