Design Director, Experience

Landor, Columbus

Creating agile brands


We are currently seeking a Design Director for Experience to join our Columbus office. Could this be you?

Let us tell you more….

At your core, you are a conceptual thinker – always seeking the uncover solutions and ideas through ideas. 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.

You are an 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.

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.

So, what are we looking for?

A Design Director who has a passion for brand, but the ideal candidate also has other skills and experience they can bring to the role. Think UX, CX, motion or environments. Our work and our clients vary across corporate and consumer, so we want someone who is comfortable with both. 7+ years of broad creative and management experience (required) with a global sophistication and the ability to adapt to different clients and briefs. Bachelor of Fine Arts or equivalent education and experience. Experience leading cross-discipline teams and design leaders.
