Copywriter and Art Director (Team)
Posted on Apr 5, 2021 by Publicis Health
The creative department is the engine room of the agency. We believe in a maker culture that delivers creative currency at every turn. As a Full time Creative Team, you are responsible for the bulk of the agency's idea generation.
You put all of your energy into any and all briefs that come your way. You will be supported along the way by your Creative leads, your CCO and by other departments but the conception of ideas is your top priority.
You must deliver big, fame-generating conceptual thinking that pushes boundaries but is ultimately sellable. Through your experience you have a solid foundation of strategic and conceptual understanding, backed up with some significant work. Your work displays a tone and POV that stands out while still consistent with the clients' brand.
This role requires those who pride themselves on their work ethic, willingness to roll up their sleeves and desire to keep learning. Simply put, you are passionate and excited about ideas. Additionally we're looking for a good listener, willing to take feedback objectively and discuss the merits of the work (yours and others') without taking the critiquing of your work personally.
You are entrusted with all sizes of projects and are expected to work into your creative leader. You understand you still play a supporting role to the larger team, but you are able to juggle several projects at once.
We intend for this role to start off as remote but will eventually join the rest of the agency in our NYC office once it is safe to do so.
