Minimum Experience: 10+ years

Local Projects is an experience design firm with a passion for testing the limits of human interaction. Driven to keep both meaning and innovation at the forefront of our work, we build opportunities across a range of platforms that inspire people to participate, share, and explore.

Over the last 18 years, we have completed over 100 experiential projects ranging in scope and scale. And have had the great honor of winning awards for our work, such as the National Design Award, Muse, AIGA, and the Cannes Gold Lion to mention a few.

Creative Directors at Local Projects envision cutting-edge design solutions for our portfolio of international cultural and corporate clients from concept through to execution. From short design sprints, through to multiple-year engagements, CDs establish the design excellence and innovation at the core of the firm’s services and reputation. CDs also influence our studio culture by leading multidisciplinary internal design teams, shaping processes, and pursuing innovation while ensuring creative excellence.

Bringing a depth of knowledge from one of LP’s core creative disciplines, Creative Directors work with clients to apply creative solutions towards a range of experiential projects that include physical environments, linear and interactive media, graphics, and sound, ensuring that project deliverables meet standards of excellence within established timelines and budgets. Excellent visual and oral communicators, CDs lead the client conversation towards realizable creative solutions. Sensitive listeners and partners, CDs work with the Project Manager to manage client relationships and develop production plans through all project phases and pivots.

Creative Directors bring the BIG creative solution and POV to projects. They are expected to maintain full understanding of their projects needs to lead them successfully through to final production. While discipline experts within the project team execute the project’s vision, CDs must have a broad understanding of how each team member can best be directed to contribute to the project at the right moment, from content, to physical design, from graphic design to linear and interactive media, the CD works with the Project Manager to activate the studios multidisciplinary teams, guiding them toward focused solutions.
