About Our Company The award-winning Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) was established in 1975 and has since grown to be one of America’s leading culinary schools. Graduates of ICE’s career training programs are highly regarded by America’s top chefs and restaurateurs and many have become culinary leaders. The recreational program offers 1,700 hands-on cooking, baking and wine education classes annually to over 26,000 students; and the special events division hosts over 500 hands-on corporate, private and press events each year. ICE’s 45,000 square foot facility is located at 50 West 23rd Street in New York City.

The Art Director is a newly created, full-time position, reporting to the company’s Director of Marketing, with a direct line of communication to the CMO and CEO. You will join ICE at an exciting time in our 36-year history: we are mid-production on a national rebrand by a top branding firm. The Art Director has the ability to think conceptually about ICE’s brand experience, then the skills to bring it to life. It’s not just about creating an image, body copy or producing a piece, rather, about fostering our new visual system so that brand has a unified look and feel. You’ll stay true to ICE’s new brand architecture but enjoy a creative license that it affords. Most important, you’ll do so with plenty of rich content, in a growing industry, and for an organization that’s in the center of all the action.
