McCracken is on a mission to create meaningful connections across the supply chain that empower farmers and make agriculture more productive, profitable and sustainable. We are committed to bringing client visions to life while building a people-first agency culture. Please take a minute to get to know us at wearemccracken.com.


We are looking for a Group Creative Director to lead creative execution and build a team to meet the evolving needs of our clients. You will direct creative for all existing clients, manage our talent pool of creative contractors, and you’ll get to flex your creative muscles, too.


If you are a creative leader—equal parts strategist, art director, and designer with agency and agriculture experience—we’d love to hear from you.


Is this you?

  • You love working directly with clients and using creative thinking and strategy to achieve real business results.

  • You are as comfortable guiding a team of creatives/contractors as you are getting your hands dirty.

  • You are flexible, a quick learner, and can effectively communicate and prioritize.

  • You can set the strategy one moment, collaborate with a teammate the next, and execute on a project before the day is over.

Can you take responsibility for these?

  • Develop and lead creative and/or brand strategy for all agency clients.

  • Establish an internal creative process to eventually build a team around.

  • Set creative direction and delegating execution.

  • Manage the creative “bench” of contracted services, including design, content, photo/video, and web design/development.

  • Art direction, graphic design, final production, and anything else that requires the design skillset.

  • Review final work for quality and ensure it is on-brand and on-strategy.

  • Work closely with the account team to ensure client expectations are met.

  • Understand and adhere to project budget and timeline expectations.

  • Work with a project manager to review project timelines and assign contractors.

  • Contribute to new business proposals by taking an active role in developing ideas and strategies.


What are you great at?

  • Demonstrating an understanding of the client’s audience, product portfolio and marketing strategies

  • Creative execution

  • Digital strategy

  • Taking the ball and running with it

  • Leading internally and with contractors

  • Client interactions and presentations

  • Managing people resources

  • Listening for and helping source opportunities for new business

  • Strategic thinking

  • Working quickly and efficiently

  • Comfortable with ambiguity

  • Performing well under pressure and tight deadlines

  • Detailed, quality work

You’ll fit right in if:

  • You're comfortable in a constantly changing environment where we learn and grow every day.

  • You have experience working in the agriculture industry.

  • You have 8+ years of art or creative direction experience.

  • You have experience across all channels including: branding, print, radio, tv, social and web.

  • You are a self-confident leader who leaves their ego at the door.

  • You thrive on collaboration and enjoy adding to the conversation.

  • You possess a true team spirit, with a commitment to the success of the company and its clients, and have a strong sense of passion for the work and pride in the team.

  • You understand how to manage up and down.

  • You have the willingness and ability to travel.

Requirements:

  • 8+ years of agency experience, with part of that time in a creative leadership role

  • Experience working with/for the agriculture industry strongly preferred

  • Current portfolio of work demonstrating projects you have contributed to, as well as led a team on

  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite
