LOS ANGELES

Digital Art Director

EXPERIENCE

6+ Years

Sound like you?

You want to be unforgettable and make unforgettable things. Every time out.

You have a talent for using visuals to communicate and make people feel something. You agonize for inordinately long periods over the exact right typeface to use. You ask yourself questions like “if a picture can tell a thousand words, how many words can a GIF or the perfectly looped video tell?” You believe each and every pixel deserves to be represented at its best.

If you join us, you’ll collaborate with creatives, strategists and engineers who stop at nothing to make ideas come to life. Along with your team you’ll be the daily champion of simple, beautiful and fresh. You’ll be happy to be in an environment that  celebrates “we” over “I”. You’ll already be passionate, resilient and resourceful when you arrive but you’ll also be excited to be powered to new heights by a crew who is forever humble and hungry to its core.

We’re Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners, an ad agency that always strives to be honest and true, cool under pressure, resourceful and tough with an appropriately proportioned soft spot.

Always ready to ride in and save the day. Passionate and opinionated yet collaborative and with out conceit. Curious. Prompt. Courteous. Prepared. Willing to trust guts and fly by a pant's seat. Driven by ideas, belief in principles, good food, and well-aged single malt scotch. Shitheads need not apply.
