Art Director

What We Need

About Us:

Codeword is an agency of creative problem solvers who believe marketing doesn’t have to suck.

We are a fast-growing, fast-moving team of writers, editors, designers, strategists, videographers, PR mavens, and even a few traditional marketers. We have an incredible roster of big and small tech clients for whom we manage editorial and social channels, develop smart marketing strategies, drive news coverage, and create big ideas.

Codeword is a remote-first agency, though we have physical offices in NYC, SF, and SLC that we won’t make you visit.

About You:

At least 3+ years of experience

Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite – Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere, and InDesign

Proficient with the Google Workspace ecosystem – Docs, Slides, Sites, etc.

Familiarity with After Effects and Figma

Art Direction

Aptitude for vector illustration, layout, type design

Understanding principles of UI design

About This Role:

This designer/art director will be working most directly with Michelle Huynh, Senior Art Director on the team, and reporting to Sean Slavin, a Design Director at Codeword. You’ll be part of the wonderful design department at Codeword, led by Ana Macias, a team made up of art directors, animators, UI designers, illustrators, and all around creative people!

From a day-to-day perspective, you will be working directly with an internal design & marketing team at a major tech brand, providing design production, creative exploration, and art direction on an ongoing basis.

You will be involved in concepting new ideas and producing work with a healthy amount of independence. This role will require the ability to stay on top of multiple open projects without the aid of a traditional account team, and communication is crucial as you will be working directly with our client stakeholders. We’re looking for someone who loves the process of conceptual thinking and strategy as much as the design and is able to communicate these great ideas clearly! Everything from brainstorming ideas, to layout design to illustration is seen in this role.

You’ll also be tasked with pushing the boundaries of collaboration tools & non-design platforms, such as Google Workspace (Docs, Slides, Google Sites, etc.).

What You’ll Be Doing:

Adapting already existing brand guidelines to new and existing projects

Creating icons and illustrations for suites of internal communications

Developing mini brand identities for one-off projects and programs

Working closely with our stakeholder to pitch and present creative ideas

Create one pagers and deck presentations for internal marketing use

Find ways to optimize and audit already existing creative

Work on event promotion and collateral for team building programs and offerings

Your Compensation:

People – that's you! – are the heart of our business, and we believe in pay transparency.

Our budget for this role is a salary of $70,000 - $89,000 , depending on experience.

Your Benefits:

Flexible work hours

Minimum 15 days paid vacation annually

401k + financial wellness support

Health Insurance (medical, dental, life, pet, mental health services)

Home office allowance

Bi-annual Wellness Credits

Monthly Technology Credit (to offset internet / phone costs)

Every role is bonus eligible

Comprehensive Parental Leave Policy

A few more things you should know about Codeword:

The Codeword dream: Make good money doing work you care about with people you like.

We love our clients (they write the checks!), which means maintaining a high bar for the creativity, smarts, responsiveness, and communication skills we offer them.

We’re around 100 people, big enough to handle large-scale marketing programs, small enough that you’ll have an impact on our culture.

We’re a friendly team, we look after each other, and we grow our careers together.

We respect everyone’s personal life. After-hours emails are strongly frowned upon, night and weekend work is very rare, and employees are encouraged to pursue their side-hustles.

We’re all grownups here, and we trust each other to get the work done, whether at home or in an office or a time zone on the other side of the world.

We believe in defaulting to openness. Our calendars, our salary tiers, and our doors are open for all to see. (Except for secret client stuff, which we guard with our lives.)

We’re a proud member of the global WE Communications family.
