Associate Creative Director – Content & Copy

United States Creative

The role

We Are Social is seeking an Associate Creative Director to join our growing team! We create people-centric, brand experiences that drive results. We aim for the buzz and filter every thought through a subculture lens. We make authentic connections. We spark real conversation, online and off. We do not create culture, people create culture. We just amplify it. We are creators, writers, designers, PR practitioners, Influencers and so much more. We’re passionate about our clients and our work.

For this ACD Content & Copy role you MUST have a deep interest and unbridled passion for movies. Liking movies is one thing; quoting movie dialogue in conversation, constantly recommending films (old and new) to friends and family, and using film clips as memes is another thing entirely. We’re looking for the latter person: a movie nerd who also happens to be a social media obsessive. If this sounds like you, we look forward to connecting soon.

While working on our Creative Team you will:

  • Continually work to understand what makes branded content successful on each social platform
  • Keep abreast of all the latest social memes, trends and content formats
  • Lead ideation for social content and campaigns tying past, present and upcoming films into culture
  • Provide leadership and direction to team members as they create concepts and execute solutions
  • Be a creative spokesperson for projects to ensure that the creative integrity of the work stays intact
  • Present effectively to clients and agency teams (this is a client-facing position)
  • Handle quick, reactive turnarounds while shepherding high volumes of content through ideation to production
  • Understand the structure of a brand’s identity—how the visual and verbal executions come together to create a holistic brand experience
  • Concept campaign work that is social at heart, but expands into the real world through experiential expressions of the core strategy and voice
  • Recognize a client’s needs and articulate them into a creative concept
  • Have a genuine interest in and awareness of the creative industry, including groundbreaking social executions and emerging technologies
  • Have a growth mindset and be an empathetic listener, colleague, and peer
  • Contribute to new business activities

Your experience looks like:

  • 5+ years of agency experience and a portfolio of social advertising work
  • Experience leading graphic designers, motion designers and video editors to bring social content concepts to life
  • Robust knowledge of social advertising fundamentals, including platform strategy, storytelling, socially optimized design and emerging technologies
  • Proven track record of creating social content that authentically ties into culture, not just resizing digital ads to fit social formats
  • Previous experience working with entertainment clients a huge plus
