Creative Director

Landor, San Francisco

Creating agile brands

At Landor SF, we are committed to changing the future of branding and designing stunning work that’s never been seen before.

Now we are looking for our next Creative Director.

If you are experienced and wise, love your craft, and have a passion for collaboration, you’ll fit right in.

About us…

Landor builds some of the world’s most iconic and agile brands.  Our global team of strategic experts and creative explorers solve complex business and brand challenges in unexpected ways.  It’s one of the reasons we took home four Cannes Lions this past June.

Who You Are


As a creative explorer…


At your core, a master designer – always seeking to uncover solutions and ideas through design. You thrive on setting the direction of the creative process within the office, and providing inspirational leadership for the creative team. You know when you need to roll up your sleeves and design and when to focus on vision. You are a storyteller, a brand strategist through design and an advocate for the creative process.


As an advocate for design…


You are expert at communications – saying what you mean and hearing what others mean to say, whether in a one-on-one conversation or in a formal presentation.

You’ll be very good at building relationships – with clients and within the office. You’ll be good at this not just because it’s a requirement of the job but because you’re passionate about relationships and are sophisticated at dealing with different personalities and different seniority levels. You’re a diplomat and do not fear confrontation. You thrive leading a team and understand the different contributions different individuals make.


As a business leader & mentor…


You are a strategic thinker, understand branding and love it when you really understand a client’s business and arrive at insights that solve their challenges via their brand.

You are results-focused, very organized and a skilled planner. But you are also an improviser who knows that ambiguity and changing priorities are common. You know finances, financial goals, reporting and metrics and how to manage these.

You are a team player; understand team interaction and roles of team members. You perform well in a team environment and foster communication and cohesion between internal teams and functions.

Finally, you are optimistic and enthusiastic but also a bit restless and dissatisfied.


What We’re Looking For


  • 2-3 years as a Creative Director. Experience should include B2C, B2B, global clients, start-ups, expertise across design, advertising, typography, video, motion
  • At least 12 years of broad creative and management experience (required)
  • Bachelor of Fine Arts or equivalent education and experience.
  • Experience leading cross-discipline teams and design leaders.


We are not looking for a unicorn. We know you are out there! If you think this is you, express your interest and apply.
