Job Description

Logitech seeks a Creative Designer (Junior Art Director) with integrated skills and 3+ years professional experience to join its growing in-house agency team working on Logitech and Logitech G. In this role you will work with the growing in-house creative team to conceptualize campaign creative, create comps, build pitch decks, and art direct work through production and post. Must have ad agency (or in-house ad agency) experience with passion for advertising, be fast, collaborative, and have strong visual storytelling fundamentals–with the portfolio to prove it. Enjoy less endless pitching, more creating and producing. Come join the fun and get some great work in your book.

The Role

The Creative Designer role for Logitech will support the visual storytelling responsibility in creating original, culturally vibrant, brand engagement: from top level campaign concepts, to paid media advertising, and everything in between.

As a designer you will play an instrumental role in supporting the visual expression of Logitech and its sister brands. You will live and breathe art direction, pop culture, and the latest trends in advertising and technology.

You will enjoy a mid-sized company atmosphere, with a flat, collaborative culture, including direct access to Business Group teams. You will pitch less and produce more, and get a real opportunity to make an impact on marketing and product experiences.

You will partner with a copywriter and a cross-functional team of marketers, designers, industrial designers, product leaders, technologists, business leaders to bring ideas to life and products to market.

Come join us in telling the world about the cool new products Logitech is creating, while chasing an award or two along the way.

  • Develop and maintain relationships with best-in-class visual partners, including photographers, directors, production and post houses
  • Ensure projects are completed on time, with an exceptional level of quality
