Look At This! it's a Freelance job

Here's the deal: understood is looking for a Freelance Junior to Mid-Level Creative Team to do great work for a great cause in our New York, USA office. Or more specifically, from your home until our NYC office re-opens.


About us:

About the role:
We’re looking for passionate and ambitious creatives (potential temp to perm) or individual AD/CW’s looking to do great work for a great cause. If you have impeccable writing or design skills and a passion for concepting big ideas, then we’d love to meet you. If you’re someone who has the ability to bring ideas to life by creating videos, animations, graphic elements, photographs and more, we’d also love to meet you. If either of these speak to you, and if you have a partner that you’d like to work with...then we’d love to meet the both of you!

A little bit about you:
• You can support, develop and execute on ongoing digital & social campaign work

• You’re able to handle feedback and evolving direction based on strategic insights

• You have a genuine interest and curiosity in supporting individuals with learning and thinking differences and disabilities

As part of our growing team, you’ll work both independently and collaboratively under our senior creative team to help on everything from brainstorming campaign concepts all the way through to creating content of any and all forms. It will also give you an opportunity to do work that truly matters for an organization committed to social impact.

• Contributing in team meetings and brainstorms, working closely with our senior creative team, as well as designers and members of our production and strategy teams

• Translating strategy and executing on ideas from creative leads into compelling copy across digital, social and video content
