R&R Phoenix | Creative Director

So, What are we looking for in this role?

I guess the clinical answer would be something like: The Creative Director is responsible for the overall excellence of the agency’s creative product. 

That’s totally true, but here are some of the nuanced qualities that we think the right person will embody. First and foremost, a great creative mind & a positive spirit. A mentor. A leader, inside the agency and out. A strong voice when necessary, and a calm presence when its needed most. An amazing presenter and an exceptional listener. A shining example of what it means to collaborate with teams big and small, young and old, to craft insightful ideas into culture-shifting work. Someone who thinks beyond siloed media channels, and is as turned-on by creating the next breakthrough app as they are the next legendary ad.  Someone who understands that great brands need to behave more like publishers than advertisers.  More like entrepreneurs than managers   Most of all, we’re looking for a good person, who is driven by purpose and shares our core values.  If this sounds like you, then check out the devilish details below:

The Dirty Deets:

  • Direct the creative product at the agency and strive for excellence in everything from strategy to concept to execution.
  • Responsible for all aspects of the creative product, from copy & art to interactive media & innovation.

  • Deliver work that is not only mind-blowing, but also consistently on-time and profitable.
  • Present work with passion and an entertainer’s flare.
  • Work with team on resource allocation to keep people engaged and not burnt out.
  • Publish thought-leadership both internally and externally, and take part in public forums to represent the agency
  • Hug Pops from time-to-time (we can explain).
