Art Director

As a mid-level art director at Colle+McVoy, you'll be responsible for wowing our creative directors with your ideas, design skills and entertaining YouTube video finds. You'll spend a lot of time with a copywriter dreaming up ridiculously big ideas. Once you and your writer friend strike gold, you'll be responsible for bringing your big idea to life.

Sometimes you'll work with outside vendors such as photographers, retouchers, illustrators, directors, animators, editors and print vendors. You may even work with an animal trainer or a chainsaw juggler at some point, if you're lucky. So, if you'd like to work for an agency that has a sweet rooftop deck overlooking downtown, a beer trike and was named one of the Best Places to Work by Advertising Age, Outside magazine and the Star Tribune, then show us what you've got.

  • Develop concepts and layouts, collaborating with copywriters and other creatives to produce a high caliber of work under deadline 
  • Art direct through final layouts; attend photo shoots, broadcast shoots and all aspect of post-production 
  • Present ideas and work to team and/or senior creative personnel 
  • Possess a spectrum of design skills; interactive design is a plus
