Priorities USA is looking for a Design Director in Brooklyn, NY, USA.


Priorities USA is looking for a Design Director to join our all star creative team of art directors, writers and producers to help defeat Trump in 2020. You’ll be supporting one of the largest persuasion and mobilization campaigns in politics – a year-round effort to talk to key groups of voters.

Reporting to the Associate Creative Director (Art), the Design Director at Priorities USA will be managing a small team of designers to execute beautiful digital creative to motivate voters across the political spectrum. You’re a creative leader who thrives in a fast-paced design environment and can expertly manage the production of a wide range of assets across multiple projects.

Because of federal election law restrictions, we are only able to consider candidates for this position who are United States citizens or who hold a Green Card (are lawful permanent residents). We are unable to consider candidates who are authorized to work in the United States for other reasons.

Please note that this is an election cycle job that concludes in November 2020.
