Position at VMLY&R
At VMLY&R, we create connected brands. We resist the usual ways of seeing, doing and thinking - harnessing creativity, technology and culture - to reimagine the entire connected consumer experience. Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people's lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world.
VMLY&R is looking for an experienced Verbal Design Director of Brand Identity to help lead multidisciplinary teams. They help craft, establish and manage brand identity as it relates to all things written and said allowed. This includes overseeing naming, nomenclature, brand story, tone of voice, personality, positioning and verbal identity vision standards and vision for our clients, guiding work from its conceptual ideation through full implementation and ongoing brand identity management.
This isn't a normal advertising writer position, but one focused specifically on brand identity verbal systems as it relates to the Practice of the Brand ID & Design Studio at VMLY&R. The verbal design director can create and deliver sound strategy, write in and establish any tone of voice, and think about language and words within the context of branding our clients products and business across b2b and b2c industries. They should be equally psyched about naming a new spirit, creating tone of voice for a health care start up, or developing messaging for a global silicon manufacturing giant.
At a director level, the Verbal Design Director will manage juniors on the team, work with leads across the agency disciplines as well as collaborating, strategizing, crafting, presenting and managing our brand identity workstreams hand in hand with our client partners.
They also play strong leadership roles, leading teams through projects and regularly presenting work to clients.
