Who we are looking for:

Wunderman Thompson is looking for a Junior Art Director to join our world class creative team based here in Atlanta.

As a junior level creative, you'll commit to bring your ambitions to grow your experience and portfolio to everything you do, from campaigns and client meetings to productions–and we'll commit to provide you with those opportunities to show your skills and grow. With each brief, you'll be expected to show your ability to ideate on and beyond briefs no matter the media need. You'll be part of a talented team of varying levels and your ability to collaborate, respond to feedback, and maintain a positive and motivated attitude will be crucial as you make great work. You'll have a portfolio of work that shows us big ideas, cross channel thinking, and your ability to execute your craft at a high level.

This role is on multiple accounts, partnering with a Junior Copywriter, reporting to an Associate Creative Director, with a direct line to the Group Creative Director.

**This is a remote start opportunity with option for hybrid in-office working capability. Our office is currently operating in a remote capacity.**

WT Atlanta is looking for top creative talent who want more–more global brands, more portfolio worthy campaigns, and more access to the partners, specialists, and technology to help you sell-in and execute ideas that break rules, traditions, and set future trends for the industry and your peers.

We know the next big idea is nothing without the right opportunity and team to help you make it a reality.

As winner of both Most Creative Company and Most Innovative Network at Cannes this year, our recognition is quickly catching up with our work (and the culture around it). In our Atlanta office, nothing we do is mid-market. From owning the creative on global accounts and building brands that reach billions, to leading creative on North American pitches as we continue to grow and expand. We operate with the culture and hustle of a small independent creative shop, but we do the work that only the muscle of the largest agency in the world can pull off.

Our work is quickly expanding in the ATL office. The momentum we're seeing is unmatched. We're seeking new creative hires with the talent to help continue our growth.

What you'll do:

  • BUILD | Concept, design, and execute award winning brand campaigns for ambitious clients.
  • BREAK | Embrace the unknown and challenge conventions. If it's been done, it's not good enough.
  • THINK | Be a source of new ideas for every brief, tactic, execution, and conversation.
  • PARTNER | Collaborate with your partner, clients, strategy, account, and experts from our global network.
  • GROW | Broaden your experiences and skill sets while elevating the work you're on and expanding client relationships
  • SUPPORT | Be willing and able to help the team in every way possible as we strive to create great work.
  • INSPIRE | Know how to capture the attention of your audience, from client presentations to campaign launches.

What you'll need:

  • 1-3+ years of experience in advertising agency, inhouse creative group, or related field.
  • Portfolio showcasing big ideas and the ability to execute them across channels in unexpected ways.
  • Proficient in the skill of advertising art direction including typography and layout.
  • Growing presentation skills. Experience on new business pitches preferred.
  • Professionalism with clients and internal team.
