Job Description

The ability to conduct art directors, designers, and copywriters like a finely-tuned orchestra.

Presentation skills that command a standing ovation.

The talent to build relationships as well as brands.

Can mine data and research to find diamonds.

And must love dogs. (Because there’s usually at least one in the office most days.)

At FourthIdea, we hire special people because we’re continually striving to be a special agency. An agency that is as known as much for the environment we cultivate as the work we create. The person who will succeed in this position is someone who can balance a passion for excellence with a spirit of camaraderie. Yes, we work long hours to get the job done, but it never feels like work because the people here help one another rise to the occasion.

– Ensure all projects are completed to company standards, prior to deadline
– Produce the foundational elements of branding including positioning development, marketing plans, roadmap planning, and statistics analysis
