Art Director

Lightboard seeks a talented designer and mentor to join our team as an Art Director.

If you have agency or in-house experience managing a small team and designing marketing material for major brands, and want to grow with a great team–read on, my friend, read on.

About Lightboard

We are a no-nonsense design service that delivers quality craftsmanship to established brands like Autodesk, GitHub, and Microsoft, as well as innovative younger companies.

We believe the traditional agency model is fundamentally broken. Our clients don't need a full-service creative agency—they've already developed their strategy and need high-quality design to bring it to life, quickly and efficiently.

And that's what Lightboard does.

About The Job

Our design team is filled with superstars, and they're looking for a leader.

Our designers range from talented generalists to brilliant specialists, and they all need a little help now and then–another eye on a project, another voice in the room with the client, and another hand when they're feeling overwhelmed.

Lightboard is a busy place, with hundreds of projects in flight at any given moment. Different brands with entirely different types of projects–from branding to illustration to web design. Our art directors are calm and steadying hands.
