Position Description

We are the #1 PC company on the planet.
#240 on the Fortune Global 500.
We make ThinkPad computers, Moto phones (hello Moto), AI, VR and things you never saw coming that will change the world for good.
We are Lenovo.
And we’re building an in-house agency with a single purpose: To make Lenovo the most talked about brand on earth.
Now, we’re looking for an experienced advertising-based Senior Art Director/Designer with equally strong conceptual and design skills to join our team.
Here, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a traditional advertising agency without the traditional agency BS.
You’ll work on the Lenovo brand and all of Lenovo’s globally-renowned product brands like ThinkPad, Yoga, Moto and more. The position is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and will report directly to the Creative director on the World Wide Brand team.

Key Responsibilities
You’ll work alongside our award-winning Creative Directors with resumes that include Wieden & Kennedy, Ogilvy, MullenLowe and JWT to develop the brand’s content across all channels including digital, social, broadcast, print and whatever comes next. You will help manage and grow the junior teams and oversee the work of our external agency partners. Plus, you’ll work closely with internal production resources and outside vendors to see all work through to completion.
You will also need to collaborate closely on brand and product strategy with a tight-knit and razor sharp marketing team.

Position Requirements

The right candidate should:
• Hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree and have 6-8 years of experience as an agency creative with an award winning portfolio.
• Have an insatiable curiosity and a passion for bringing powerful, unexpected ideas to life within digital, social and traditional media.
• Be very comfortable and familiar within the digital and social space.
• Collaborate and work well within creative teams and with multiple creative partners.

• Be able to identify good ideas from others and be willing to work with them to help develop and grow those ideas.
• Have a good background and experience in strategic thinking and strategic campaign development.
• Be able to help shape a creative brief and develop strong, relevant and engaging creative ideas against it.
• Be able to develop a keen understanding of the target audience, so that they can communicate with them in the most engaging way possible.
• Have experience working directly with clients and be comfortable developing relationships with them.
• Be a very confident presenter and be skilled in influencing and persuading others.
• Be a quick thinker with attention to detail who is comfortable working in a world of fast paced deadlines and working on several projects at once.
• Have a strong understanding of branding, and how to apply a brand’s visual language across multiple touchpoints
• Have a strong design sense and the skills to transform your ideas into final product.
• Be highly proficient in Abode’s Creative Suite, and have some experience in front end development.
• Be able to produce talked-about creative work within existing budgetary and timing parameters.
• Be very well versed in the production of digital and video assets and be comfortable working directly with production teams in a hands-on manner.
• Have a love and knowledge of technology and how it is changing what’s possible.
• Have a can-do attitude and the openness to work on global campaigns and internal campaigns alike
• Be ready to roll up your sleeves and go from creator to manager and back again at a moment’s notice
