As an ART DIRECTOR at VaynerMedia you are an expert visual thinker, storyteller, and maker. You’re someone who has the know-how and skills to work hands-on, owning the creative process from ideation through to execution. You know how to work across all social and digital platforms, understanding the best practices and nuances of each. Additionally, you have experience producing work for different formats, too, including static images, deck design, videos and animations, GIFs, and more.
You are someone who is able to bring your own ideas to life, as well as collaborate with other creatives to determine the best visual execution of a concept. You can work independently, as well as part of a team with other creatives.
Most importantly, you MUST love social media, especially TikTok. You are someone who lives on the platform. You know the creators, spot the trends, and understand its best practices. You don’t just consume videos, you create them. You know the suite of tools on the platform and understand how to use each of them. Production experience is a plus.
