  • Associate Creative Director

    (Greenville)

    We’re looking for art. We’re looking for ideas. We’re looking for concepts. We’re looking for outrageous talent, wrapped in visual badass-ery, deep-fried in strategic thinking, and covered in an unrelenting work ethic. And we need all this in a cool, ego-free human being that loves to think, create, build, drink, and lead. Not necessarily in that order.

    Cargo needs an ACD from the Art side that’s been doing amazing work for 10+ years. We could throw out a bunch of soul-crushing buzzwords like “brand storyteller,” “digitally savvy,” and “team player,” but that feels dirty. Instead, we’ll just say that we work with big brands who expect big things from us. Here are some of the things we expect from you:

    • Responsibilities
      • Provide big thinking, strong integrated ideas, and rock-solid execution that solve problems
      • Work with the Team to develop strategies, concepts, executions, and general mischief

      • Ability to multi-task, take initiative, work efficiently and be flexible when quick-turnaround projects come up
