Job openings at DaviesMoore

During a recent visit to DaviesMoore’s website we noticed a couple of job openings:

Production Designer

The Production Designer creates and modifies print and digital ads for use in various media, ranging from print advertising to digital banners, mailers, brochures and other collateral. The PD prepares files for production confirming specifications, technical details and ensuring all quality standards are maintained. The PD role is approximately 75% production, 25% design. 100% attention to detail.

Requires expertise working with the Adobe Creative Suite and Adobe Creative Cloud-based software, specifically creating original design work in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator while adhering to brand guidelines and best practices. Also requires experience in creation of production and print-ready/mechanical files from design renderings or mockups. Must be fast, thorough and able to manage a high volume of projects with attention to detail for copy and layout to ensure consistency and best delivery for messages both visual and written.


Front-End Developer

The successful candidate for this role will be someone who is dynamic and innovative in their approach to web development. We are looking for someone who can collaborate, conceptualize, build and maintain websites for a variety of clients.

We take pride in developing a custom, responsive web experience tailored to the brand’s objectives while integrating into the overall marketing strategy seamlessly. We seek to provide our clients with engagement websites that don’t simply provide a brochure of products and services but start and continue a dialogue with its visitors.

This approach to web design and development requires someone who doesn’t just build a site to an XD file or to meet client requirements, but rather someone who thinks beyond what the client says they want and provides the best solution for what will really move the dial for their business. Knowing when it makes sense to add interactivity or unique functionality, having the confidence to build your vision and coach the client requires someone who is a self-starter and constantly stays on top of trends in web design. This person will always be educating themselves to create new ways of engagement via the web regardless of the device a person chooses to access it.

From the “Things we missed in 2018” file

While reading CLM’s 2018 reflections, something caught our eye we hadn’t noticed: Early in 2018, Brad Surkamer bought CLM back from Ivie & Associates, which had previously acquired CLM in 2015.

2018 kicked off with Brad buying back the company from the Ivie family. Our time with Ivie was good in providing new experiences and perspectives, but we are thankful for Brad’s desire to focus on CLM and our team and clients. The move breathed a new life back into CLM. We spent time contemplating and developing CLM 3.0, CLM’s strategy for the future, and with that came a new mission, vision and set of values for the company.

The return to local control and decision-making marked the next chapter for the agency, whose roots date back to 1980.

While it appears that CLM still maintains a working relationship with Ivie & Associates, this move also seems to coincide with Quad Graphics’ acquisition of Ivie in 2018.
