Art Director

Posted: Aug 31, 2022

Are you part creative wizard ? developing and maintaining unique, strong, cohesive visual brands? Are you also part technical wizard ? pushing the boundaries of what is possible with today's creative software and coming up with new ways to bring concepts to life?

Do you have big ideas, an open mind and an interest in residential real estate? Do you love to learn, grow and be challenged, but can also remain calm under pressure? Would you describe yourself as driven, yet humble. 

If so, you could be NDG's next Art Director. 

And in addition to joining our talented and dynamic team, you'll have the opportunity to collaborate with some of the nation's leading home builders and developers. 

At NDG, we believe that home buyers need a trusted guide to truly help them navigate their new home search, which is often stressful and crowded with choices, competition and noise. So we innovate effective marketing strategies that challenge our clients ? and ourselves ? to better serve today's home buyer, as their guide, because helping people find their dream home means we are helping them improve their life.

From working remotely in the comfort of your home office, you'll conceive new brands from scratch and create stunning campaigns that draw an emotional connection with the intended audience. Alongside the Creative Director, Designers, Copywriters and the entire agency team, your role is to ensure that progress is made and deadlines are met, ensuring everything we create for our clients meets their lofty standards and our own ? which are even higher.

If you understand the power of branding, visual storytelling and lead generation ? as well as being part of a service-minded team that never settles for average ? this could be the place for you.

Let's talk.
