Art Director Intern

At Colle McVoy we believe that creativity can transform business problems into human solutions. The insight and ideas that transform business for our clients come from our people. Our agency culture is unmatched, and we welcome applicants who share our values of passion, partnership, integrity and courage. At Colle McVoy, creative is more than a department. It’s an expectation. And that’s where you come in.

As an art director intern at Colle McVoy, you’ll be responsible for wowing our creative directors with your ideas, design skills and entertaining YouTube video finds. You’ll spend a lot of time with a copywriter dreaming up ridiculously big ideas. Once you and your writer friend strike gold, you’ll be responsible for bringing your big idea to life. Sometimes you’ll work with outside vendors such as photographers, retouchers, illustrators, directors, animators, editors and print vendors. You may even work with an animal trainer or a chainsaw juggler at some point, if you’re lucky. So, if you’d like to work for an agency that has a sweet rooftop deck overlooking downtown, a tap server, and has been named a Best Places to Work consecutively for the past six years, then show us what you’ve got.
