Intermediate Art Director


Location: Toronto, ON
Commitment: Full Time
Department: Creative

Posted 2022-11-30

We are currently seeking an intermediate/senior Art Director (reporting to the Creative Director, Advertising) whose primary purpose is to deliver brilliant ideas and imagery for our clients.

Inclusivity and accessibility:

Art & Science is an inclusive, diverse and accessible work environment. We strongly encourage applications from women, racialized people, Indigenous peoples, people from gender-diverse and sexually-diverse communities, people with disabilities (visible or non-visible), people of different religious backgrounds, people with family caregiving responsibilities and/or people with intersectional identities.

Who we are:

Art & Science is a full-service marketing agency with pillars in strategy, brand & communication, media & analytics and experiential marketing campaigns. With a ten-year, award-winning history working with some of the biggest brands in Canada, we continue to experience growth and success. At Art & Science, we pride ourselves on blending creative with technology to produce incredible results for our clients. We are not only committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion but we walk the talk and have built a strong culture based on those values.

What you will do:

Conceptualize & execute ad campaigns

You'll work with our growing team to design ads for a variety of formats; digital display, video-based, print and OOH. Your tasks will include sourcing the visual "mood" for campaign work that can include key photographic or design references.

Encapsulate marketing objectives into human perspectives

You love imagery and advertising. You live for art, and science. Your work is gorgeous and diverse, and your book demonstrates intuition for the viewer’s imagination.

Engage within the team

You’ll be collaborating directly with other creatives and stakeholders, developing the conceptual basis for your work as part of a team. Brainstorms, critique, honing, pitching, formalization and execution.

Think smart

Big, inspiring briefs and scrappy little opportunities to create gems. Ads, storyboards, colour, layouts, styling, film and photography. Kit and kaboodle. Bonus points for design chops.

About you:

  • This ain’t your first rodeo. Production experience is a must, from concept to final files.
  • You treat deadlines seriously and can manage your own time when working on multiple priorities. You work well with others. You want to work with a team that takes care of each other, including lending a hand even if the task isn’t part of your normal responsibilities.
  • You thrive on change. We have a diverse client roster and so the challenges we solve for vary widely.
  • You believe that new thinking is always welcome when looking at old problems, and new problems sometimes require old-school thinking.
  • You assume nothing and ask great questions. You take nothing for granted.

Why work with us:

This is your opportunity to join an agency with a heart, where the values of Diversity and Equity are a focus throughout the organization. In addition to a competitive compensation package, which includes a base salary of $70K – $75K and a comprehensive health benefits plan, you will start with three weeks of vacation, and have additional time off near summer long weekends and winter holidays. You will also experience generous leave programs, so you’re not using vacation if you’re sick and/or need to care for others.

We have a downtown Toronto office, and welcome people to work in the office on a flexible basis. This role provides the opportunity to make a mark on our design culture and have exposure to a diverse range of brands, verticals and projects. If this piques your interest, we look forward to receiving your application.
