Art Director

About this position

We are Envisionit, an award-winning digital marketing agency. We’re seeking an Art Director who is interested in both bringing conceptual ideas to the table and being hands-on with the design work. A creative who can think big and bring ideas to life through boundary-pushing, results-driven design. Someone who finds energy in the ever-changing digital landscape and driving conversions through thoughtful design. A natural born leader who loves to collaborate across the agency and with clients.  

Our clients span a number of industries, with Tech and CPG a focus, and our teams boast many talents across the spectrum of digital. We firmly believe you should enjoy what you do every day, so we make passion a priority. You will work with a tight-knit bunch of seriously talented people who genuinely like each other, have fun and work together for the collective success.

We are headquartered in Chicago and have a beautiful office overlooking Millennium Park and Lake Michigan that is available for our employees to use, as well as a flexible work-from-home option.

 

A few stand-out points:

  • You will have a true impact and have a say in what we recommend to our clients (it’s actually an expectation).
  • Our clients are motivated, so you will see the results of your work out in the world (no endless revision loops).
  • You will not get pigeonholed in one vertical. We have many exciting clients we work with!

Key functions:

  • Create memorable, stand-out visual design for the digital space, including media campaigns, landing destinations, websites, and email. 
  • Lead and collaborate with team members to develop big campaign concepts that can be executed across digital platforms. 
  • Collaborate with creative directors, motion designers, copywriters, production artists, and digital channel experts to develop assets that deliver upon our clients’ goals, drive conversions and results. 
  • Collaborate with copywriters to define layout and hierarchy of content based on goals and requirements.
  • Visually evolve brands to position themselves more effectively for growth in their industries as well as within the digital space. 
  • Create visual user experiences and branded assets for websites (web layouts, page templates, design systems, infographics, etc).
  • Ensure visual design follows best practices for usability and drives conversion goals.
  • Ensure web design systems are appropriately planned for and coordinated with developers.
  • Work with the client services team and Associate Director of Delivery to ensure design effort remains within scope.

What we’re looking for:

  • A passion for taking everyday digital interactions and transforming them into high-performing brand experiences.
  • The ability to problem solve, think conceptually and deliver creative solutions.
  • A team player that truly enjoys collaboration and working with people.
  • Confidence in presenting work to internal and external stakeholders with solid strategic reasoning.
  • Someone who is driven, organized, self-motivated, able to keep a cool head and meet deadlines.
  • Someone who can work with flexibility across design tools that include Adobe Creative Suite, InVision, Sketch and beyond; a willingness to learn new tools.
  • A solid portfolio of digital work. 

What’s in it for you:

  • Flexibility - We strive to support our employees and understand that life is complex with a lot of moving parts. We offer a hybrid in-office/remote environment, generous PTO, summer Fridays and floating holidays beyond the standard holidays.
  • Growth opportunities - Every employee has regular check-ins with managers to discuss priorities and goal progress, peer feedback and a framework to share career goals and passions. We are proud to say many people on our leadership team have grown through the ranks of the agency!
  • Transparency - We have regular, anonymous surveys for you to share your feedback, an open door policy, regular agency meetings and a suggestion box that is always open for you to share your thoughts and ideas.
  • Commitment to company culture - We have a recognition system that is employee-led, a diversity and inclusion committee, monthly events to bring employees together in-person and even weekly happy hours! 
  • Commitment to serve - We offer every employee a paid day off each year to volunteer for a cause they are passionate about, and give them the opportunity to share this cause with the rest of the company.
  • Office amenities - You’ll have access to a dedicated workspace in our downtown office plus free use of the Prudential building concierge and well-equipped fitness center. There is a stunning rooftop overlooking the lake if you want to work outside on a nice day.
  • Ease of transport - Our office is located near the el, Metra and bus stations and there is paid parking underground.

The ideal candidate for this position will have at least 5-7 years of professional digital experience, and a solid design portfolio submitted with their resume.
