Interactive Creative Director
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.
We’re looking for a Creative Director with a strong interactive background to take the lead role in winning and producing groundbreaking digital-intensive projects. Someone with a proven ability to develop big ideas, and then turn those ideas into award-winning work across a wide range of digital channels. You’ll need to know how to engage a viewer’s emotions as much as you’ll need a love for and understanding of the newest interactive technologies and trends, and what they mean for our brands. To guide projects through the complete life cycle, from ideation to production, development, and deployment, you’ll need considerable experience building large websites as well as more focused branded experiences such as mobile apps, videos, and gaming. And you’ll help shape the future of our department, so you must be able to lead, mentor, grow and attract great creative talent.
