BOLD Worldwide is looking for a dynamic freelance Creative Director. He or she will be responsible for driving the overall creative vision for specific client projects. The Creative Director must possess impeccable client-facing skills and be able to represent the agency’s creative and ideation process from concept to delivery.

BOLD Worldwide is a small Manhattan-based advertising agency that specializes in athletic, sports and CPG brands, so someone with a background in these areas is a huge plus. Our Agency is full-service but the core of our projects deal with content creation and commercial production.

We are looking for a highly creative person who isn’t afraid to look at things differently and go beyond creative measures to deliver top quality work. Currently this is a freelance (per job) basis and is perfect for a CD who has decided to go off on their own for more freedom. If this person proves themselves as a huge asset to the team there is a possibility of it turning full-time down the road.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
• Create compelling creative and user-focused solutions that align with the clients’ objectives.
• Present BOLD concepts to both existing and potential clients.
• Act as a creative lead, oversee and mentor a team of art directors, designers, etc.
• Cultivate new, fresh ideas for our clients, as well as the BOLD brand.

Requirements:
• 3-5 years agency experience with proven creative leadership role.
• Experience in both existing and new business pitches.
• Fast, efficient and able to manage creative budgets and resources.
• Proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign or other basic design tools.
• Established design background with execution across various types of platforms.
• Experience with content creation and commercial production.
• Bonus points if you have worked with Sports or CPG brands.
• Extra Bonus points if you are athletic.
