Lyceum Media is looking for a Creative Director in New York, NY, USA.
Hate the news? Us too.
Lyceum is a new media company that aims to add value to people’s lives, rather than feed them garbage. We don’t do “news,” we don’t do politics, we don’t do clickbait or hot takes or opinion or comment sections or tit-for-tat or any of that other crap. We do rigorous, thoughtful, artful, longform pieces in a variety of forms: essays, criticism, investigative pieces, letters, columns, interviews, oral histories, conversations, humor, visual art, music, film and fiction.
Lyceum is, simply, a brand new space. For the curious, for the bored, for the exhausted, for the politically homeless, for the people hungry for a four-course dinner rather than another bag of candy.
We're looking for a Creative Director to design this space for us. That is, envision and execute a beautiful, interesting and ever-expanding space to encounter content you can’t find anywhere else. A “space” is really a great way to think about it, because although the first phase of Lyceum is a website, the future is wide open, and we’re thinking big (magazine, books, records, interactive events…).
What you'll do:
➞ Create a beautiful, innovative concept for the website and build it out, recruiting and managing any help you need.
➞ Develop comprehensive branding for Lyceum, including a style guide.
➞ Start putting together a broader creative team.
➞ Curate a list of artists, designers, photographers, etc. that you think Lyceum should feature, and cultivate relationships with them.
➞ Work alongside our Chief Strategist to envision and start designing the future of Lyceum.
Please navigate to the full job post below, and MAKE SURE you read the application instructions in order to be considered. This is a full-time position; we're not interested in partnering with outside agencies or studios.
