Job openings at SOVRN

SOVRN is looking to grow their team again, and has two new openings they recently posted on their site:

Art Director

We are seeking an art director with excellent design chops who can also provide clear direction without losing sight of project goals. We want an art director that can work with and mentor our designers, animators, videographers and other creatives to lead and unify a creative vision and deliver campaigns that are as impactful as they are thoughtful. To mesh with our team at SOVRN, you’ll need to be able to communicate a vision to the team, provide clear direction and feedback, and listen to client requests to determine how to best incorporate feedback.

As an art director, your responsibility lies in leading and maintaining the creative vision for a project or campaign and helping the team produce that vision. You can expect eager team members to support and enhance your vision, as well as simple and effective processes to help you maintain deadlines and deliverables.

Graphic Designer

We are seeking a talented graphic designer that is looking to create work that makes an impact. We want a talented designer that pushes creative boundaries and delivers appropriate, unique and rich design for a range of work in print and digital mediums. You’ll get great direction and support from the project teams to help you achieve your best work. To fit in at SOVRN, you’ll need to be able to work well with others, which includes having the confidence to stand behind your work and receive constructive feedback.

Full details about both positions — including how to apply — can be found on SOVRN’s website.
