Associate Creative Director

Looking for a high-level, right-hand Associate Creative Director who can manage and elevate our design and dev projects to the next level — ideally evolving into our full-time Creative Director.

About LPDS

Hi, I’m Loren Polster, a graphic designer and front-end web developer of 15 years in the process of building a little virtual agency, bound for glory.

We focus on assets for marketing teams — rebrands, website design & dev, social & display ads, event collateral, and of course, polishing PPTs by tomorrow. Some projects are simple and executional, and others are deliciously custom and complex.

We specialize in integrated but flexible retainer contracts for medium-sized SaaS companies. We aim for an optimal blend of reliability and adaptability — combining the best of an in-house team and an external agency. We're honing in on a formula that could work well with where work is heading (for talent and clients): remote, fractional, balanced with life.

If you’re interested in building something, in having your ideas be heard and in improving yourself and others, let’s chat.

Read about what we offer, important details, and how to apply at lorenpolster.com/join-our-team.

Process

  • This application isn’t a binary hiring process.

  • If the interviews go well, we’ll start you with some small projects to test working together. That might lead to a retainer contract or more.

  • Either way, you’re getting your name on a list for a growing number of opportunities —  here or elsewhere — that fit with what you’re looking for and specialize in.

Details

  • Fully remote contract work

  • Project-based to possible weekly retainer of 15–30 hrs.

  • $60–90 / hour depending on experience, quality, efficiency — and volume of hours.

Responsibilities

  • Running your projects with minimal to no input from me — once onboarded and familiarized

  • Produce flawless and stunning original design work in brand development, collateral, website and UX design, and other promotional materials

  • Delivering great solutions in context as well as great design:

    • Taking practicality and use of the design into consideration — how it will be built, the goals of the brief, ask of the client — not just creating something cool.

  • Come up with brilliant creative concepts and make design decisions on your own

  • Manage projects, clients and other designers

  • Respond quickly, be on call during scheduled hours, and provide fast turnarounds

  • Execute less-exciting design production work with excellence

  • Edit and possibly build web pages — usually through page-building interfaces on wordpress not requiring code

  • Maintain unwavering politeness and respect to our team and clients

  • Follow and improve our processes & protocols

Requirements

  • 10+ years professional design experience

    • Agency experience is a plus, but not required

  • Expert knowledge of Figma

  • Knowledge of Adobe CC programs — namely AI, PSD, INDD

  • Available 20–40 hours per week

  • Native English speaking

  • US time zones (or close to)

  • Familiarity with WordPress basics

  • CSS and any front-end knowledge is a big plus, but not required
