Description

Chernoff Newman is passionate about solving problems through creative communications. We enjoy the folks we spend our days with, whether it’s inside the office or outside after hours. We have a relentless curiosity, no matter what discipline we’re working within, and that drives our passion for creativity. It also fuels a culture of collaboration and fun. We live in a team environment, where we truly work across all disciplines in our marketing efforts. And the most important member of our team? That’s our client. This approach, where we put our clients first, helps us work together as a unified team. A team built to connect with consumers on a personal level. Technology may drive this engagement, but people are who really make it happen.

We’re in search of someone who is able to routinely conceptualize creative solutions that effectively communicate strategic intent across a variety of mediums. Ultimately, our art directors are expected to understand clients’ needs and visually express ideas through compelling, persuasive imagery and design. Art directors work closely with our associate creative directors and copywriters to schedule and monitor all art direction and graphic design projects.

Our best work is achieved when we bring diverse perspectives, backgrounds and skillsets together to solve problems for our clients. In addition to diversity of thought, we value diversity of people and are committed to a workforce that’s inclusive of our community and culture.
