We are seeking a talented Interactive Art Director with solid digital experience and a well-rounded design background to join our Creative team. Sterling-Rice Group is a uniquely integrated brand development firm based in Boulder, Colorado. We're not your typical advertising agency. From developing a national advertising campaign to crafting brand strategies that take advantage of new online opportunities, the Sterling-Rice Group is uniquely skilled at positioning, leveraging and translating brand equity in both the physical and virtual worlds. Named in Outside Magazine's famed "Best Places to Work" list, as well as one of the best small agencies of 2011 by Advertising Age, Sterling-Rice Group is a fantastic place to work. Our fun culture, love of "living well," passion for great work, and giving back to our community make SRG a great place to be every day.

As the Interactive Art Director, you will initially collaborate on overall campaign ideas with art director/writer teams and lead the interactive-specific ideas. You will work closely with the integrated producer and extended teams to both build out ideas and design development-ready assets. You will apply solid problem-solving abilities to ensure each design project is not seen in isolation. You will look at the “bigger picture” in a creative or advertising campaign and incorporate best design and technology practices to provide cohesive support of overall creative strategies.
