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.
