Posted 2 months ago

Contend is a collection of like-minded, unique, creative, and mildly weird creators and doers.

Were looking for an insanely kick-ass, smart, and ego-free Art Director to join our small but mighty creative team. We need someone who is as comfortable concepting as they are building decks and getting their hands dirty. Youll need a toolbox full of the following:

  • Make awesome, job-winning decks.
  • Be able to interpret a brief and concept on-brand, eye-catching creative.
  • Have a really good eye for photography, especially in relation to decks.
  • Did we mention decks? Killer decks. Seriously.
  • An innate ability to articulate ideas.
  • The patience to take on multiple jobs and not lose your cool.
  • A good freaking attitude.
  • Really good style.
  • A desire to visually own an account.



Reliability and a good sense of humor

Proficiency in Mac OS and Microsoft Office (Word, powerpoint)

Understanding of the creative process including concept development, design of layouts, and mechanical output for print

Expertise in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe In Design, Adobe Acrobat, and other creative suite applications

Very organized, self-motivated, and task oriented, with strong verbal and written communication skills

Strong work ethic and enjoys working in a collaborative team environment

Capable of meeting tight deadlines, and managing multiple projects simultaneously in a fast-paced environment

Technical skills in building final art for print and digital is a plus


This is a freelance position.
