Senior Art Director

To apply, send resumes to with “Senior Art Director” as the subject line.


Solve is seeking a Senior Art Director who wants to do remarkable work with us. We’re committed to a hybrid environment, with three days in our downtown Minneapolis office and two at home. (But we promise, our office is pretty laid back.)

Who are we? We’re an independent agency making some noise. Maybe you saw a post or three about our recent flurry of awards. Or our new business wins. We’ve got momentum on our side, and now we need someone like you.

Speaking of, who are you? You’re ambitious, conceptually driven and understand that big ideas work across all mediums. You have a strong portfolio and solid production experience. You love the craft of art direction and bringing ideas to life. You’re highly collaborative and enjoy an environment where creativity isn’t limited to one department. And you’re seeking strong, empathetic mentorship to help define your career path.

As a Senior Art Director, you can take ownership of projects and see them through. You stand up for your ideas, take direction, and mentor others so that everyone grows.

Some of the things you'll do
  • Working collaboratively across all departments to solve our clients’ business challenges in innovative ways
  • Concepting breakthrough, on-brief creative ideas
  • Working with your writing partner and other creatives to prepare work to be reviewed by the CCO, who you’ll report directly to
  • Art directing and designing everything from TV to brand acts to bookmarks, giving our work the right aesthetic and creating persuasive presentations to sell the work through to clients
  • Presenting work with confidence both internally and to clients
  • Juggling the virtual WFH environment through the alchemy of Teams, Keynote cloud collaboration, and whatever comes next
  • Working with production partners and vendors
  • Going all-in to help the agency win new business pitches and grow
  • Remaining cool, calm and collected under pressure
  • 5+ years’ experience in an agency environment
  • Integrated background that goes beyond broadcast or traditional media, i.e. fluent in digital/social
  • Ability to bring fresh, distinctive art direction and design to the work
  • Good design instincts, aesthetic taste, and solid typography
  • Solid production experience, including experience on shoots and in post-production including editing, color grading, and online finishing
  • Highly proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop) on day one
  • Knowledge of Lightroom and Keynote is a strong plus; we use Keynote cloud collaboration daily
  • Interactive design experience a plus
