    JOB SUMMARY

     

    You don’t just know the buzzwords: brand standards, big idea, concept, integrated campaign, environmental, social — you have an experienced and even passionate point of view about them
    in relation to a large portfolio of B2B and B2C brands. You’re excited to partner, design and lead
    with other creatives to bring our UL story to life in a design environment and throughout traditional
    and digital spaces.

     

    You might have corporate experience; in fact, we hope you do. You definitely have creative agency experience, and you understand the discipline required to focus on clients first and shut out all that corporate blah-blah. You know how to design and mentor an art team, collaborate with copywriters, present your work to key internal stakeholders and [seemingly effortlessly] juggle all four on any given day. You love to design and love what you do.

     

    Our UL Office location is in Denmark and you have a team to work with in Chicago as well, but you can make it work because communication is your gig. And it’s not hard because the teams you get to work with are smart, energetic and pretty darn talented.

     

    The UL Creative Services In-House Department is growing, and if you want to grow with us, let’s talk.
