Creative Director

Welcome Aboard, Captain

We’re Madwell, a full-service agency based in Brooklyn NY, & Boulder CO. and we’re looking for an adventurous Creative Director to take the helm.

What You’ll Do

As leader of a growing team and head of that creative brain trust, it’ll be your job to help conceptualize big ideas (and cute little ones). Even more importantly, it will be your goal to nurture and empower the creatives you work with to develop and manifest great ideas for themselves.

Day to day, you’ll be working with the creative, production, accounts, and strategy teams to create campaigns, websites, apps, social media content, branding, packaging and whatever else we want unleash into the world in support of the brands we love.

Who You Are

  • Experience in creative leadership, whether in-house or in an agency setting
  • Attentive, empathetic, and able to learn and grow while teaching and growing others
  • Able to connect the dots between mediums and disciplines
  • A deep understanding of brand development as well as both traditional and digital marketing
  • The willingness from the outset to establish clear creative direction and to provide constructive feedback for your team
  • An uncanny ability to communicate and present ideas both internally and to the client
  • An even more uncanny ability to stay on schedule and on budget
  • A love of culture, technology, trends, and their evolution
  • Willing to get your hands dirty on every level of a project

Where You’ve Been

We ask that candidates have at least 5 years of creative leadership experience. That said, we care more about aptitude than perfection, and we always appreciate an unusual career trajectory. If you think you’d be a fit, we want to hear your story.

But Enough About You. Here’s a Little About Us:
We strive to provide multifaceted, multichannel, multi-medium advertising and marketing support, traditionally the purview of much larger agencies. Grounding ourselves in a deep technical understanding of ideation, design, copy, code, and analytics, we adhere to a simple recipe for success: be a tiny giant. Our commitment to boutique agency-style client relationships empowers us to be lean, responsive, and adaptive. An obsession with learning, mastering cutting edge technologies, and data analysis fuel our passion to bring complex concepts to life as naturally (and beautifully) as the big guys.
