Art Director - Toronto
27/08/21
As an Art Director at Works Design, you get to make a marketable difference in corporate communications. You bring to the position a commitment to client service and collaboration; to high-quality, original ideas; to sharing creative inspiration; and to leading others in creating thoughtful, well-executed designs.


THE PLACE
Ours is an engaged and creative team of approximately 35 professionals who are dedicated to teamwork and collaboration. We’re project-focused and deadline-driven – so some days may be longer than others. But even when it’s busy, we make time for team activities (whether virtual or in person), rooftop barbecues and other celebratory get-togethers.
Works Design is currently working remotely due to COVID-19, but we are looking forward to being together again in studio using a hybrid approach to operating in the future.


If you join us, you’ll need to be okay with dogs: we are a dog-friendly studio. They’re all harmless, but some of them are big.

  • Support project managers in directing and managing projects

  • Help develop the talents of design staff

 

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
Possessing superior skills, you generate excellent ideas that help to deliver content in an engaging way – on brief and on budget.
