Job Description

Your job will mean defining, beautifying and crafting the look of some of the world s biggest, most well-known brands. You ll design for a variety of media that defy the two-dimensional and live in personal experience. You ll love this job because starting your day with blank pages getting placed in front of you, waiting for you to design gorgeous experiences that have never been done before, excites you. You ll be at a place where ideas get produced, not left for dead in brainstorms, and those ideas come to life in tangible ways that you can actually experience in the real world. You ll get a chance to step up, get client-facing experience, and be an instrumental voice in pitches and presentations.


There s no one roadmap for brand experience; you ll build visual stories from the ground up on a daily basis. We ll show you the goal and you ll get us there how will be up to you. You ll show off your design chops by being able to effortlessly swap styles and looks for a variety of clients and environments. You want to make more than just a print ad or a commercial you want to make anything and everything and that s not hyperbole. Some days you ll work on the video for a microsite, other days you ll make a billboard or stunning still images for a live experience or who knows* This isn t cookie-cutter ad school art directing this is brand experience.
We challenge ourselves to create ideas that are so terrifyingly good they make us nauseous. That s what you ll do.


/ WHY YOU LL LOVE DOING IT AT MOMENTUM
Because the idea that a brand s action is more important than its rhetoric is the key to ouR entire approach. The experiences people have help decide what a brand means to them emotionally, socially and when it's time to buy. Experience creates real connections that lead to loyalty, advocacy and sales. So Momentum imagines and creates what we call the total brand experience. We connect brands and people in authentic ways that give real value to both. For people, that means memorable, valuable experiences after which they love the brand for who it is and what it does. For brands, that means loyalty, sales, conversion, share and more.
