Job openings at Drake Cooper

We got word recently of a couple new job openings at Drake Cooper:


Art Director

YOU: Strategically-minded-Art Director/Designer-rock star-type person. Highly developed collaborative muscles and concept chops with mad execution skills. Comfortable living and playing in the digital world. Fluent in geek, gradient, GFX and glass half-full vernacular. Not afraid to throw ROI into a sentence, between FTW and a fist bump. Have the talent to backup a huge ego, but you don’t have one. Passionate, driven, curious, resourceful, inventive, friend, problem solver.

US: We have mad love for advertising. We have mad love for advertising. We have mad love for ADVERTISING. And we thrive on creating great work that works. We value drive, debate, breaking trail, please and thank yous, POV, and making things better than we found them. We collaborate fiercely, we play nice and drink beer together. We’re good at what we do, but we’re constantly working to get better, we embrace change, we take risks, we show up, we stay late when we need to and leave early when we can, but we don’t leave anyone hanging. We have your back. We don’t believe in the limitations of titles, we dedicate time to learn and grow. We are artists, nerds, hackers, gamers, coders, storytellers, strategists, analysts, and makers. We don’t work for Drake Cooper, we are Drake Cooper.

Production Artist

How good are you at bringing things to life? Do you need a castle and lots of wires and a lightning storm? Or can you pretty much do everything with a Mac? We’re looking for a killer production artist with proven experience. Someone who has mad attention to detail, and can keep their head when things in the lab don’t go as planned. Strong typographic and layout skills are a must and outstanding organizational skills are a given. Lab coat and goggles not required.


Full details about both positions, and how to apply, can be found via their respective links.

Job opening: Copywriter

SOVRN in Boise is looking to add a Copywriter to their team. From the job description on their website:

First and foremost, you should be able to write. Headlines, content, storylines, fun stuff—not technical stuff. Coming in a close second is that you need to be able to come up with ideas and concepts. We have a team that can bring just about any idea to life, but we want another great creative mind to add ideas, opinions, perspective and experience. You need to be confident enough to present any idea to the team and take constructive feedback without feeling it’s a personal attack.

Things you better be if you apply:
– Born to write irresistible prose
– Able to take feedback without taking your soccer ball home
– Flexible without being a pushover
– Self-driven, motivated & confident
– More effective as part of a team
– Nice

Things that don’t make the cut:
– Flakiness
– Negativity
– Arrogance

Job openings at Oliver Russell

We’re on the hunt for a Producer to join our team and to provide a necessary conduit between the account group and the rest of the agency. Along with having a passion for all things creative, we expect you to have an outgoing, motivated personality and be willing to bring your unique style to the table.

Your primary responsibilities:

  • Guiding projects from initial client conversations through completion and ensuring projects are delivered on time and on budget
  • Managing the day-to-day account relationship with clients
  • Developing and managing production schedules and estimates for client projects
  • Gathering and assembling background information for strategic planning, creative brief development, etc.

Senior Designer / Art Director

You’ll need to be strong in developing a concept and able to implement it as well—we are a small and flat organization.

We’re a collaborative place, we work hard, and there’s no job too big or small for anyone.)
