We believe in the power of creativity: creativity that makes people think, feel, and then act.
Creativity brimming with bravery and vision, heart and humor, imagination and truth.
We believe that brands should stand for more than what they're selling.
With culture as our playground and emotion as our craft, we help our clients
change minds, win hearts, and create memories.
We believe that good people are the key to creating great work. Our halls are filled
with passionate thinkers and makers, seasoned experts and rising stars, who unleash
each other's brilliance and celebrate every win as a team.
Together, we bring ideas from the page into the world, ideas that are so audacious, so original,
so meaningful that they couldn't come from you or me - only we.
WE ARE TMA. CREATIVITY THAT MATTERS.
We're looking for a Junior Art Director to create breakthrough, original works of art for our brands. A forward-thinking creative who understands the power of consumer engagement through promotions, retail, social, content, big idea thinking and more. A visionary and image conjurer. A hands-on designer who can concept the unexpected and then bring it to life with exceptional polish and pop. You make art that dazzles, backed by strategy that sells. You can think verbally and are able to articulate your ideas with panache. You constantly seek out inspiration, you learn from others, you envy industry greats, and you become better every day. Your antennas are always up for art and culture trends. On top of that, you've got the organizational chops to juggle multiple projects at once, while staying laser-focused on the small stuff. You're a team player and can see yourself as a creative leader one day. You take feedback like a champ and run with it, because you're a pro and at the end of the day you know it's all about the work, and never about yourself.
