Job Description

Snapshot of what we’re looking for

Looking to work on fun brands with fun people? How about being able to see your work out in the world (“hey mom, did you see my work there?”). How do you feel about brainstorming on national programing ideas while still being able to geek out on find details of design?


Our Art Directors are immersed in the heart of our team, working alongside their Copywriter partners and reporting into an Associate Creative Director. In the thick of the work, they’re touching all things, including sketching display ideas, animating social posts and designing all sorts of materials across all classes of trade.


Ideally, this candidate will have had 2-5 years as an Art Director working with well-established brands and has workflow, software and time management basics down.  Most importantly, this candidate has a thoughtful perspective and a high level of aesthetic when it comes to the development of the work itself.


The Molson Coors team

As one of the larger clients at Arc, the Molson Coors team is alive with activity, highly collaborative and ripe with opportunities. Sure, some of the work is nitty gritty, but we’re constantly doing fun work that can give you (and your portfolio) a buzz.


As Molson Coors’ commerce partner, our ideas are showing up everywhere beer is sold.  Grocery and convenience stores, restaurants, pubs, sporting events (hello football lovers!), concerts and more. We’re continuously working on national creative, local activations and projects to support our sport team alliances.


Some of the brands we work with include Miller Lite, Coors Light, Miller High Life, Blue Moon, Peroni, Leinenkugel, Keystone Light, Topo Chico and a handful more.
