Creative Director, Marketing. mynd. Oakland, CA, USA. BOOM! Nuff said.
Do you speak Pantone and see in grids and pixels? Do you have an addiction to fonts, moodboards, and scrolling through real estate listings in far off places? Would you relish the opportunity to build a disruptor brand and recruit a team of world-class designers, copywriters, producers, photographers, videographers, set designers, and editors? If so, you just might be our person.
Mynd is looking for a senior creative leader to build and scale our in-house Creative Studio. From ad photoshoots and voice & tone guidelines, to video scripts and Instagram grids, you’ll lead the development and rollout of our refreshed brand across all business lines, markets, and audiences. You should be a seasoned digital designer and brand strategist with strong business instincts and experience using data to make the business case for creative resources. You have a knack for explaining creative concepts to non-creative audiences, and for building memorable stories and visuals that cut through the noise. You have a history of building creative teams, infrastructure, and processes, and driving cross-functional projects through to completion.
Reporting to the VP of Marketing and sitting within the marketing organization, you’ll work at the intersection of the Marketing and Design functions with considerable influence and visibility throughout the company. You’ll have “clients” on the Growth, Marketing, Sales, and Bizdev teams and thought partners on the Design team. This is a remarkable opportunity for a hands-on, innovative leader to build out a new core function and evolve the creative vision of a Series C company.
Recruit, lead, and mentor a tight-knit team of highly motivated and boundary-pushing creatives, engaging ancillary freelance and agency resources as needed.
Together with the VP of Marketing, guide a cross-functional brand committee to refresh our brand identity, develop our brand attributes, and solidify our brand promise.
