Your Role

This position works closely with all team members to create content from the beginning to the end of the creative strategy. You’ll be in on initial meetings with clients, getting to know how their business works, and doing research where needed. You will report to the Creative Director but work alongside an Art Director to align the brand voice and visuals. You are not required to illustrate but you must love stick figure drawing.

About Your Team

We’re a group of brand loyalists, marketing strategy gurus, digital experts, designers, and writers who came together to help clients focus on strategy and grow their business. The Novella Brandhouse team is highly collaborative, as each team member brings expertise to the table. As a team, we brainstorm ideas and implement strategies, so this position needs to be willing to offer ideas and concepts for ad campaigns, brands, and other marketing efforts. We are very nerdy about branding, you should be too.

Your Vibe

The ideal candidate for this role would be an excellent writer, have a creative mind and be highly collaborative with superior client relations and soft skills. They should have a desire for problem solving and digging inside the client’s mind to understand what drives both them and their customer. If you are a brand truth seeker, then Novella is the place for you.

This person should be organized and willing to carry projects and own them from beginning to end, telling the story of how the brand would be carried out on the website, print, video, marketing collateral, social, email campaigns, PR, etc. Someone who is comfortable with writing for a variety of clients and industries is a must.
