PHANTA Portland ,OR
  • Expired: 20 days ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description: Art Director - Digital *This is a full-time remote position. TLDR - A full-time design-driven role that helps us live up to the promises we make to our clients. Us. In a nutshell. Hey there, Louis here - I’m the COO of Phanta Media. As a digital marketing and sales agency, we leverage people-first insights, story, and an agile framework to grow sales for our clients: growing leadcounts and close rates, taking new products and services to market, pivoting and transforming businesses. For some, we’re a little hard for people to wrap their minds around. You see, we’re a growth agency. We’re one part strategic consultancy, one part creative agency, and one part performance marketers. But that mix allows our in-house team of strategists, SEMs, creatives, content producers & production resources to drive immediate and never-ending value for our clients. To get the full story on our culture and approach, and to see some of the work we’re proud of, check out https://www.oneofus.phanta.co/ For recent examples of our work please check out this Google Drive link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ES_iEDZ3sKUbIQvgPjeyH85u64stwB7h?usp=sharing The role… It’s simple really: strong visual ideation and keen design skills. The way we tell stories, through visuals, animations, or copy is often more important than the service or product offering. Because striking design communicates a feeling and experience that goes beyond the rational. Your role will be to help connect brand messages to the target audience - moment, platform, and message specific. Through this process, you’ll determine the overall style, tone and design of a project. Be it for brand identity, digital publications, web and landing page design, ad campaigns, motion graphics, or photography, you’ll help take a project from client need to full delivery. To do this, you’ll need to be able to help answer the question, “What should we do?”, then build a rationale and present your concepts and work in an inspiring way. This is particularly important when pitching new business or campaign creative. You’ll be working in close partnership with our Director of Content and Creative to create meaningful work and to ultimately influence an audience’s behaviour through compelling ideas, creativity and the use of design-based storytelling. Furthermore your Director will be a beacon for leadership, mentorship and guidance to ensure we’re not only making you better at the work and striving to achieve our standards, but even a better person. Honestly, you're somewhat of a unicorn, you have a razor-sharp understanding of design for marketing, and have a strong foundation in colour theory, typography, and layout. You come from an agency background. You not only work with other designers but with producers, photographers, website developers, and you have knowledge of e-commerce and front/back end development. We’re a Hubspot agency and partner, so we design, build and manage websites and landing pages on the platform - a willingness to learn, or better yet have familiarity with the platform would be a huge asset. We believe… That marketing can be predictable and as our Art Director, you’ll be working in a fast-paced, client-focused digital marketing agency where each client presents a different challenge and every project is unique. You’ll be using your understanding of how to follow the process when it is working, how to blow up and reinvent the process when it is not working, and a sense of ownership over each and every project. You possess a high-level understanding, or an interest in, learning of how digital marketing campaigns, CRM integrations, creative productions, and websites are conceived, planned for, and delivered, with the insight and intuition to answer questions with complete authority. Questions like: What does this need to feel like? Are we patterning high achievement? Is there consistency in what we’re doing? Does form follow the function? Will the experience resonate with the user? Are we following the process? Did we achieve the outcome? How can we make it better next time? We are all strategists… At Phanta, it's up to us to tell our clients what’s best. Because we know our targets, because we know their motivations, and have the insight. We have a tight relationship with our clients and we know them like the back of our hands. We’ve invented their brand, tone, voice, and language. And because we’re in control, we’ve got their backs. As our Art Director, you will be responsible for: Hands-on day to day designing of client work. Determining how best to represent a concept or story visually. Determining which photographs, art, or other design elements to use. Review and approve designs, artwork, photography, and graphics. Talk to clients to develop an artistic approach and style. Coordinate activities with other artistic or creative departments. Present designs to clients for approval. Being cross-functional, lending skills outside your main area of expertise to collaborate outside your role from time to time. Key requirements... Mastery of Adobe Creative Suite (Lightroom, Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, XD, After Effects) Knowledge of Hubspot, Wordpress, Shopify, Mailchimp, Unbounce, and Webflow Understanding of PHP and/or CSS,SQL a plus Strong knowledge of both waterfall and agile project management frameworks. Excellent working knowledge of project management tools such as Asana, Basecamp, Trello, etc... Knowledge of G Suite applications (docs, sheets, slides, etc.) is essential. A comprehensive understanding of production processes and workflows Outstanding planning and time management/budgeting skills in order to manage multiple projects at once. Exceptional organizational and time management skills Strong written and oral presentation skills. Key details… We’re creative problem-solvers who are focused on sales and revenue - because at the end of the day clients care more about their balance sheet then proxy indicators. And the job of making the sale, and keeping the sale, is never done. We believe that experience is everything. We live in a subjective world, and how a customer feels about working with us and the outcome is more important than the objective quality of the work. We have an agile workplace where the head of each practice group (ie, you) coaches and mentors the heck out of their team. It’s just as important for our team members to be better people, better spouses, parents, friends, etc as it is for them to be better at their skills and craft. We always ask, “what’s the story?” We’re story-tellers, not only in our work but in the conversations we have. So what’s the story from last month’s results? What’s the thinking that you and your team put into the work? What new insights and discoveries have we found along the way. As a team, we all want to know, and certain clients want to know. We work with ambitious entrepreneurs and medium-sized, owner-managed businesses across Canada and the US. We help our clients crystallize and commit to ambitious goals, determine what roadblocks are keeping them from achieving these goals, set a strategic plan to start attacking them, and then help them execute on that plan. Our criteria We evaluate potential team members based on 4 criteria. CULTURE FIT - will you fit in and enjoy working here? QUALITY OF WORK - we try to hire people better than us. HOW YOU GO ABOUT THE WORK - great work is important but how you go about your work is just as important. VALUE FOR MONEY - proper compensation should be as important for you as it is for us. We look at compensation as value for dollars invested, not simply hard numbers. If someone can work three times as fast for double the rate as another person - there's a lot of value there.
