Job opening – Senior Designer / Art Director

Oliver Russell in Boise has an opening for a Senior Designer / Art Director. From the job listing on their website:

Here’s the person we’re looking for:

You’re a team-oriented individual with a bent toward strategy and a strong identity skill set, but you should have outstanding design chops across all media, from packaging through digital.

You’ll need to be strong in developing a concept and able to implement it as well—we are a small and flat organization. (You should also be comfortable getting dirty on a volunteer project to rebuild trails in the Boise Foothills or helping rearrange furniture to accommodate a speaker’s event in the office. We’re a collaborative place, we work hard, and there’s no job too big or small for anyone.)

You’ll have a strong desire to change the world and will have demonstrated an active pursuit of social purpose in your career, which could come to life through volunteering, advocacy, past work for social enterprises, or perhaps even something else. Tell us about it!

You must have strong communication and presentation skills. Emphasis on presentation—you will need to present your ideas at the same high level of quality as the work you have created.

You’ll likely have 10+ years professional experience. While an agency or professional services background is preferred, it’s not a must.

Full details about the position and how to apply can be found on Oliver Russell’s website.

Musical chairs

We got word recently of a couple moves affecting shops in the Boise area:

Jason SIieversIn February, Jason Sievers moved from DaviesMoore — where he most recently served as Creative Director — to One Stone, where he’s Creative Director for Two Birds, the student-led creative studio. The move also reunites Sievers with Michael Reagan, who spent 17 years with DaviesMoore prior to joining One Stone.

Dan StoneDan Stone also recently moved from Oliver Russell — where he was Senior Copywriter — to Duft Watterson, in the same capacity. It also reunites Stone with a few of his former Stoltz Marketing Group colleagues, including Ward Duft, Jill Watterson, and Tony Hart.

Back in 2008 we wrote about Jeremy Chase’s departure from Drake Cooper and impending move to Salt Lake City, Utah.

Jeremy ChaseSince then, he went on to broaden his experience with the creative agency Struck, and over 10 years honed his travel and tourism chops with clients like the Utah Office of Tourism, Experience Scottsdale, Catalina Island Company, CMH Heli Ski, Ski Utah, Snowbird, and Sundance. He also was a public speaker and presenter at state, regional and national industry events.

Fast-forward to today, and things have come full circle.

Last month, Jeremy returned to where it all began, and rejoined Drake Cooper as VP of Client Services. In his new role he leads the client services team and collaborates with clients to plan work focused on strategy and results.

Fittingly enough, his first day back at Drake Cooper — Groundhog Day.

Welcome home, Jeremy.
