  • Position Overview

    The Creative Director joins us at a critical period in our development. The rate of change in terms of EcoSense on a “tech curve” is dramatically increasing. As we rapidly build out our IP, we are looking for a “creative visionary” to innovatively translate technical ideas into human stories and intelligently simple expressions – so that both novice investors and technical lighting designers are equally informed and inspired.

     

    One way to look at it, the Creative Director will invent our own “Rosetta Stone” language, turning raw IP concepts and meaningful words/phrases into intuitive narratives. We believe that the rare ability to push through complexity (to find simple, elegant solutions) requires both high-level strategic thinking and an equal appreciation and passion for the craft of making things. We are on the hunt for a creative powerhouse who would thrive on the challenge.

    The Position

    • The role will be to build a strong internal creative culture, as you lead the development of creative work that has the potential to create conversations and drive the business.
    • Creative vision will help shape the EcoSense voice, and you will identify unique creative ways for us to build and engage our audience and invite them to participate.
    • Be a versatile, well-rounded and highly-disciplined creative leader who has a strong pulse on the latest in creative storytelling and how it is applied across a multitude of leading-edge platforms.
    • Demonstrate creative vision – inventing, shaping, and spearheading our visual narrative. And You like to be a part of everything – you don’t like to limit yourself to just one thing.
    • A working practitioner – not only articulating vision but actualizing it through stellar execution across platforms.
    • Have a proven ability to collaborate across disciplines such as Marketing, Creative, Product and Management.
    • Thrive in fast-paced environments, and you easily toggle between the big picture and the nitty gritty and back.
    • The Creative Director will spearhead the development of our visual identity, including:
    • Visualization of our IP
    • New color palette, fonts, look/feel, UI
    • New website
    • Office space design palette/creative direction
    • Trade show design (inspirational, groundbreaking, consistent with our visual identity)
    • Branded assets, brought to life in an original way (e.g., T-shirts, mugs, etc.)
    • Templates/tools (e.g., Identity guidelines, marketing materials, PPT slide library, Word templates business cards, email signatures, contract formats, etc.)
