Job Description

Guru seeks an experienced advertising and marketing Art Director (5-7 years in an agency setting) to join our full-time staff. This position will work in close partnership with Guru’s creative director, graphic designers, copywriters and strategists to generate creative solutions across channels and mediums for brands who are impacting the world in the most conscious ways. This individual must have demonstrable experience building communications concepts and campaigns, delivering attention-getting ideas, and crafting compelling designs. 

Location: We welcome your remote (but U.S.-based) location, as we are a virtual team with employees across the United States and hubs in California and Burlington, VT. 

The priorities for this role include:

  • Receiving, reviewing and researching a creative brief and discussing its strategy and objectives with a team.
  • Brainstorming original big ideas and creative pathways alone and in collaboration with the creative team.
  • Working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to identify key insights to help drive creative programming and ensure all concepts are on brief, and align with client objectives.
  • Demonstrate the ability to deliver engaging client presentations and effectively substantiate the creative decisions.
  • Understanding and being fluent in the art and science of communications and advertising.
  • Act as a catalyst to generate and embrace diversity of ideas and thinking across the teams; bring a channel-agnostic approach to creativity, surfacing never-been-done-before concepts to energize our work.
  • Willingness to both think big and craft communications assets down to the detail – including conceptual thinking, art direction and design, and production of specific assets. 

Guru’s Art Directors must possess the following qualities:

  • Be highly creative and imaginative while thinking strategically about communications  solutions.
  • Work well in a team, but be self-directed enough to work alone, given our remote culture.
  • Possess incredible time management skills that allow you to prioritize across multiple clients. 
  • Be able to work under high pressure deadlines.
  • Have demonstrated experience designing for both web/digital media and print/traditional channels.
  • Exceptional capability with typography, and layout.
  • Have an interest in conscious commerce, popular culture, and new advertising trends and techniques.
  • Proficiency with design software, including Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Proven track record with a compelling portfolio of diverse work.  
  • Possess excellent presentation skills.
