[1/2 digital, 1/2 everything else]
5 years experience
Sure, you could use your skills to sell widgets and thneeds, but why not change the world and save lives instead? Come drink the Kool-aid, join our social change communications agency, and make a positive impact in the world.
But you better have the goods. Strong design, digital and conceptual skills, committed work ethic, positive attitude, sense of humor, ability to juggle multiple projects — plus one more — and the skills to work in print, digital, virtual, mobile, physical, theoretical and the improbable. Have the book to prove it.
Fenton has been a pioneer in social change communications for more than 30 years. We work with NGOs, foundations, government and on corporate social responsibility projects that make the world a better place. We have 5 offices with a total of 75 employees.
From new business presentations to ads, collateral, websites, ideas, banners, tchotchkes, and whatever wackadoodle thing we dream up, you will be expected to deliver in a flexible, task-oriented and efficient manner. The job is half digital [website design, banners, facebook] and half design [presentations, reports, identity development].
Based in our San Francisco office, this position is a direct report to the global head of creative, based in New York. You will be expected to work with designers in our other offices and share projects, ideas, responsibilities... and secrets if you want. You will be paired closely with a digital account director to facilitate creative, design and digital capability into all our projects.
The job is cool because you get to work on all sorts of projects that directly influence the world around you for positive change. There is a lot of autonomy and potential to strut your stuff for inititatives you believe in. Changing the world is tough, so the ability to handle multiple projects across a variety mediums, budget time and deliver on every deadline is a must.
We hire based on talent, experience, and attitude.
A solid book is essential; if your résumé is in Microsoft Word, you need not apply.
