Creative Chicago, Illinois


Our DDB Chicago office is currently looking for a Designer to join our team.  The distinction between a designer and an art director is unavoidably blurry, but in general, a designer is more concerned with visual solutions, craft and execution and an art director is more concerned with the broader concept and campaign.
