Manifest is on the hunt for a Senior Art Director in Chicago. In this role, you’ll be responsible for creating and communicating concepts, implementing marketing strategies, and developing interactive design solutions—from website designs to campaigns, and any other innovative means to solve our clients’ problems. Our creativity must break through the clutter and be unmistakable. Followers need not apply. Think big. Notice small. Own it all.


Our ideal candidate:

  • Thinks conceptually and enacts visually. A true maverick of visual communicaton.
  • Pushes the envelope without ever losing sight of strategy.
  • Cares about big ideas as much as pretty fonts.
  • Develops ideas that deliver value to an assortment of current and prospective clients.
  • Is savvy in designing everything from websites and apps to print publications.
  • Assembles style guides as needed to guide creative visions for projects.
  • Collaborates with UX, photographers, illustrators, content writers and more with grace and ease.
  • Takes pride in going the extra mile to make something killer.
  • Is creative, conceptual, clever, courageous and consistent.
  • Won’t be a total dork in front of clients. (Partial dorks will be considered.)
  • Reads emails, meets deadlines, hangs out, kicks ass, takes names and doesn’t eat all of the good snacks.


  • 4-8 years of Art Direction experience, primarily in digital marketing.
  • Expert-level application of 21st century art direction tools. (We’re talking the Adobe Creative Suite and beyond.)
  • Portfolio of innovative work across platforms.
  • Creative awards a plus.
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, Advertising, Art or a related field.
