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.
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.
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.
