Associate Creative Director, Art

Company: GS&F
Location: Nashville
Posted on: June 25, 2022

Job Description:

Who we are:

Founded in 1978, GS&F is an award-winning, fully integrated marketing and communications agency. GS&F delivers proven results for clients, providing experienced marketing, creative, interactive, media, public relations and production specialists under one roof. GS&F staff numbers 90+ and our roster includes major regional, national and global clients, including Bridgestone, LP Building Solutions, Juice Plus+, Nashville Predators, Jack's Family Restaurants, Salata Salad Kitchen and the Tennessee Titans. A fiercely independent agency, GS&F takes an audience-first approach to determining the path to our client's most dramatic business potential.

Who we are looking for:

Our team consists of makers, analysts, creatives, strategists, thinkers, tinkerers and more. If you are a big idea thinker, can find a nugget of wisdom in the smallest data point, are relentless in your pursuit of doing great work and are unafraid to say the tough stuff, we want you here.

We're looking for our next creative powerhouse. Are you a conceptual, big-idea thinker who has an impeccable ability to win clients over? Is digital your domain and social your comfort zone? Can you romance (ya know, in a 'safe for work' kinda way) client executives and make them fall in love with you and the team's work? As an Associate Creative Director, you should be comfortable saying the work sucks, should do it in a way that motivates, and lead a team of creatives to fulfill their potential.

You'll likely need the following qualifications and experience to be successful in this role:

We believe that years of experience is just a number; that said, typically someone in this role has 8-10 years of art direction, creative direction, design or similar experience and has held previous positions as a Senior Art Director or Senior Designer

Prior agency experience is strongly preferred, and often individuals who've worked in agency settings are able to get up to speed more quickly

Wise and experienced leader, having managed a team of creatives with their focus on their team's fulfillment, engagement and growth

Trusted client advisor who can tackle their biggest creative challenges with sound strategic and conceptual thinking, previous experience being the primary creative lead on large, complex accounts

Proven ability to think across media types, audiences, brands and industries (however, someone who has previous tire, automotive, manufacturing, building products and B2C/B2B experience is strongly preferred)

Highly organized and an adept project manager who can get to great work quickly with an integrated team around them

A seasoned presenter of creative work who is unafraid to 'go there' in a pitch and leave it all on the line

Experience leading accounts with multiple stakeholders, divisions and interests with highly sophisticated client contacts and C-suite executives

Proven partner to their Account Management counterparts, working together to achieve the strategic goals and objectives for the assigned accounts

Someone in this role who is both determined, resilient, optimistic, energetic, motivating and visionary will be highly successful

A creative who sees an opportunity no matter how small the budget or restrictive the brief

There is power in celebrating who we are. GS&F is committed to embracing and welcoming past, current and future employees' differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status and other characteristics that make our employees unique. After all, diversity feeds the best friendships because what makes you, you---makes us, us.

Because of this commitment and our commitment to improve, we have set important DE&I milestones and goals for our agency. To that end, you may be asked a question about your gender, ethnicity, disability or veteran status as you submit your online application. Rest assured we don't have the ability to track your responses to these questions back to you and it's never considered as part of your candidacy for a position at GS&F. If we say we want to improve, we simply want to know we are actually improving.
