Be our Next Art Director
Vye is a fast-paced, goal-oriented agency with a "Get Better" mentality. We're in need of an Art Director to lend a whole new layer of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, and beauty to our process.
About us? We have two agency locations in downtown St. Cloud, Minn. and Green Bay, Wis. You'll office out of our St. Cloud location and perhaps make guest appearances in our Title Town location as needed.
If you're interested, you already know an Art Director is responsible to bring design, editorial, and interactive media to life with lofty and actionable concepts that drive client success. The ideal candidate is a highly conceptual thinker, storyteller, realist, coffee drinker, and coach with a passion for design and craft. Those are non-negotiable traits, well except the coffee drinker part.
Our future Art Director will lead a team of creatives to solve complex problems creatively and collaboratively through a variety of media (digital, social, print, and experiential). You're the right human if you have a proven track record and portfolio, can demonstrate success in all aspects of the creative process including strategy, design execution, communication, collaboration, attention to detail, and project follow-through.

- Stay sharp. At Vye, we’re constantly striving to be better and do better — for our clients and ourselves. We are curious and engaged, and we thrive on learning and trying new things. We stay on top of our game in order to help our clients achieve the same.
- Serve others. Team is more than a noun at Vye; it’s also a verb. We believe our best work is only possible when we help each other. We take issues to the source and value honesty, respect, and the dignity of each other. Our business is built on solid relationships with others, and that starts within the very walls of our agency.
- Give a damn. We’re not a ho-hum group at Vye; in fact you’ve never seen a less ho-hum group! We’re a bunch of go-getters who are not only super-charged by caffeine but by our work (insert fist-pumping). We take initiative like we take responsibility — with the spirit of teamwork and a whole lot of hustle.
- Make it fun. We embrace our fun-loving, high-spirited vibe at Vye, and we take great care to fill our days with laughter, practical jokes, and surprises. After all, the family that laughs together, creates award-winning, results-driven work for their clients together.
- Be humbly confident. We value individual passion, motivation, and drive. In fact, we believe it fuels good work. But what fuels our greatest work? When good-natured, authentic, caring individuals connect as a team. That’s combustible.
