Job Opening: Art Director at Oliver Russell

Oliver Russell in Boise is looking to add a full-time or freelance Art Director to their team. From the job listing on their website:

You love design—branding, packaging, interactive, etc. And because you love design, you’re prolific. You know what the word “prolific” means because you read books. And because you read books, you know there’s a lot more to the world than just marketing. You’d like to devote your talent to promote people and products that make life a little more interesting and a lot more sustainable—because the clients you’re working on today are slowly crushing your soul.

We’re Oliver Russell, a Boise Certified B Corp. that builds brands for purpose-driven companies. We’re growing and looking for a great designer with at least a few years of experience and a solid portfolio of branding, packaging, interactive and illustration work. We offer good pay and benefits like health insurance, wellness allowance, matching IRA contributions, paid volunteer time, and four-day weekends over Memorial Day and Labor Day. As a bicycle-friendly business, we’ll pay you to leave your car at home. Not so coincidentally, we were just selected as “Best in World for Workers 2015” by B Lab, the nonprofit organization that certifies B Corporations.

This is a full-time position, but we’re open to freelancers too. If this sounds like your cup of tea, please send your resume and work samples to info@oliverrussell.com. Show us you’re good. Show us you get it.

Desired skills:

  • CS Suite, MS Office
  • Coding for email blasts
  • Strong presentation skills
  • Decent writing skills
  • Motion graphics a plus
  • Experience in categories of food & beverage, sustainable technology, health & well-being a plus
