Struck has offices in Salt Lake City, Portland (OR) and Los Angeles.

    We Need…

    a creative director with strong digital experience, who drives growth by bringing a unique creative perspective for clients and Struck.

The Creative Director is a role model for radical collaboration, which requires a foundation of trust, respect, and shared ownership across the team.

    Diversity & Empowerment: The Creative Director understands that no single dimension defines us. While they know it’s important to focus on user outcomes, they understand it’s equally important to design the way our teams are organized to achieve those outcomes.

    • Excellent presentation skills and communication abilities for both internal and external needs.
    • The chops to direct all the projects of a modern agency: interaction design, brand strategy and development, user experience, advertising, content creation, and hard-to-define experiential oddities.

     

    We’re always looking for talented folks with diverse skill sets and even more diverse backgrounds. How you approach a problem is defined by your own personal history, and better solutions come from harnessing the talents of a diverse team with rich, unique histories of their own.
