Job openings at CLM

CLM in Boise is looking for a couple new team members, and recently (okay, a few weeks ago) shared these openings with us:

Writer

CLM is looking for a writer who can tell a brand story in a wide range of ways. Can you synthesize a slew of information and produce logical, cohesive ideas and copy? Are you passionate about writing, the work you create, and type of people you work with?

You’d make a great fit here if you:

  • Excel at strong, long-form writing and editing—preferably with a creative point of view and marketing background.
  • Can tell a story.
  • Conduct research that showcases an uncanny ability to deep-dive into the marketplace and a client’s offerings and brand image to write accurate, on-target copy/concepts.
  • Work dynamically with art directors, other writers, and directors to develop all aspects of ad campaigns and concepts for agency and clients.
  • Vibe with CLM’s fun, smart, hard-working culture, and process flow / timelines.

Production Artist

CLM is looking for a Production Artist with pixel perfection. Can you take a lot of moving pieces from different projects, organize them, replicate them and make it all look good. Are you passionate about design, your work and the type of people you work with?

You’d make a great fit here if you:

  • Are a master at taking existing designs and developing campaign assets.
  • Have the ability to learn and grow.
  • Can contribute ideas to concepts and campaigns.
  • Have the ability, or learn, to make HTML5 ads.
  • Vibe with CLM’s fun, smart, hard-working culture, and process flow / timelines.

Arrivals and departures

What can I say, I’ve seen way too many planes overhead the last few months.

There’s been a lot of movement at shops in the past several months. Here’s an undoubtedly incomplete snapshot of things we’ve seen.

At 116 & West:

In: Creative Director Kelly Knopp (who returns to the shop after a period of freelance work that included the launch of Boise OG).

Out: Adam Rosenlund, to a new role outside the agency.


At CLM:

In: Copywriter Cameron Stewart, Account Coordinator Antonio Gallegos, Video Producer Laura Munsil, Digital Media Coordinator Vanessa Almaraz, and Media Planner & Buyer Oscar Mariscal (who returns for a second stint with the agency).

Again, this is certain to be an incomplete list of comings and goings. There’s always more happening just under the surface…

Reunited

And then there was one.

Following up on the previous post about the Idaho Lottery RFP (that proved to be a bit of unintentional foreshadowing), we recently found that CLM shared the news that they were selected to handle the Idaho Lottery’s creative services:

This marks the first time in almost a decade that creative, strategy, and media will all be under the umbrella of a single agency, if memory serves.

Congratulations to CLM on the win.

Who will the next Lottery winner be?

Back in March, the Idaho Lottery issued a Creative Services Request for Proposal. Not unusual, given that it’s a state agency, and the RFP calendar and process is pretty cyclical.

The question of who will be selected to provide creatives services for the Lottery is still to be determined. But we know one agency it won’t be.

Yesterday, incumbent shop Mitchell Palmer shared a post and video on their LinkedIn page wishing their friends at the Idaho Lottery success in finding their next creative partner.

For background and context, Mitchell + Palmer was awarded the creative portion of the Lottery’s work in 2015, following a similar RFP process.

The new creative services contract is scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2021, according to the proposed timeline in the Idaho Lottery’s RFP. In 2012, the Lottery first issued separate contracts for creative and media. CLM has held the media portion of the contract since then, and added strategy in more recent years.

Job opening: Digital Media Coordinator

In addition to the previously-mentioned Writer opening, CLM in Boise is looking to add a Digital Media Coordinator to their team. From the job listing on their website:
