Senior Art Director/ACD Art Director

Creative · Minneapolis, Minnesota
Department Creative
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

Fast Horse is looking for a Senior Art Director or ACD Art Director to join our creative discipline.


Fast Horse is an independent, truly integrated agency built to unlock maximum value for our clients and potential in our people. No working in silos or fighting for a seat at the table. No competing interests or incentives. We’re an agency designed for integrated teams, not individual departments. Ideas come from everyone.  We can give you an opportunity to work on integrated campaigns, and to make really cool stuff, for a roster of world-class brands like Heineken, Dos Equis, Toro and Audi.


Our proposition starts with world-class strategists, creatives, producers and amplification specialists locking arms from the initial brief all the way through execution. It ensures organizing ideas are optimized for earned, shared, owned and paid media from the outset. And it ends with campaigns punching above their weight class because every element works harder by working together.


Smart, curious, creative, collaborative, driven and optimistic are just table stakes for working at Fast Horse.


Art direction, and the ability to visualize how ideas come to life, is an integral part of that process and a key to the overall success of our work. Ideal candidates will have 6+ years of agency art direction and creative experience and have a deep understanding of the creative process. We’re looking for students of the industry who can develop and push our creative ideas and bring our visual work to another level.

 

If you like setting your sights on the next-to-impossible and being part of an integrated way of thinking, here’s more detail about what we’re looking for:

 

  • A strong multidisciplinary, idea-driven portfolio that shows a range of big, integrated thinking across earned, social, advertising, digital and more.
  • A very collaborative working style that comes along with smart, well-grounded opinions and an open mind. You have to love to explore and not get wrapped up in ego.
  • You need to be self-directed and have the ability to lead the vision of a campaign with team members, always asking “what if” and then following it up with “here’s how…”
  • You can “run a shoot” without creative director present.
  • You bring fresh looks to everything you touch and collaborate nicely with designers—without leaning on them to hard as a crutch.
  • Nice to have some national awards in the shows that matter (not just the local Show)
  • You present confidently and effectively to internal and external clients, and you have the ability to get people excited about ideas and ways to bring things to life.
  • A strong voice/reputation in the creative community.
