Associate Creative Director / Art

Company: Bakery Agency
Location: Austin
Posted on: February 22, 2021

Job Description:

Bakery is a creative and R&D company headquartered in Austin, TX with offices in Tokyo. We work with trendsetter brands to launch products that informed consumers want. Brands like Nike, Shiner, T-Mobile, and Audi turn to Bakery to achieve their business goals by using data to inform great storytelling through innovative media channels. In 2020, Bakery was named #2 Best Place To Work by AdAge in the small agency category. We're looking for an ACD with an Art Direction background. Associate Creative Directors guide a team to develop creative solutions that live across digital and IRL formats and meet our client's marketing strategies and objectives. A successful ACD will lead brand work, mentor their team, manage regular client interactions, and steward the daily progress of their projects from start to finish. At Bakery we tend to prefer player-coach ACDs; those people who can lead by example, jumping into the work themselves. If selected, you would report to your group's Creative Director and our CCO in Austin. *Role is remote until April, when we hope to return to a physical office in Austin, TX.


  • Be a leader to art and copy creatives while overseeing 360 campaigns that meet our clients' needs.
  • Implement a combination of strategic, conceptual, and visual design skills in order to deliver persuasive stories and beautiful visuals to our clients and their audience.
  • Steward the creation of engaging scripts and experience tracks for film, social/ digital campaigns, animation, or live experiences.
  • Deliver impressive presentations! You'll be the greatest advocate for our work, but you'll also listen and internalize feedback so that we can come back with a work product that exceeds expectations.
  • Help pitch new business opportunities along with other senior team members.
  • Keep up with current trends and technological advances that can raise the level of our creative work.
  • Manage the creative process; keep things flowing smoothly, continually reviewing and optimizing every piece of creative work that you and your team produce.
  • Inspire & motivate your creative team, galvanizing them to execute large-scale, cross-channel projects that are creatively brilliant and strategically on point, on time, and on budget.
  • Be an active part of the company's culture, bringing fresh ideas consistently to your team even when they're not attached to a client brief. Requirements
    • 6+ years of experience working in a market-leading agency environment with primarily an Art background.
    • Impressive online portfolio of work demonstrating a proven track record of conceptual creative ability and judgment showcased across a variety of projects-namely in film, social, and web content-for top-tier clients.
    • Experience developing successful concepts working in collaborative multi-disciplinary teams.
    • A high creative motor. At Bakery we are asked to innovate on a regular basis, not tread the beaten path. This means you must have opinions and ideas, along with a voice to express them properly and within the context of a brief.
    • High energy, low ego. You must show you can motivate through action, but also show the ability to work collaboratively with your team and other departments without being disruptive or disrespectful.
    • Attention to small details in all work, whether it's on a visual composition or the correct grammar in a script.
    • Strong oral and written communication skills.
    • Ability to lead and mentor other creatives, especially Art Directors.
    • General knowledge of tech platforms and their limitations.
