Associate Creative Director, Interactive


The culture at Subject Matter is fed by creativity, depth, energy and speed, and we’re looking for an Interactive Design leader who will thrive in this environment. If you’re comfortable in a position that is laser-focused on one topic day in and day out, this job is not for you. However, if the thought of working on health care on Monday, railroads on Tuesday, and consumer brands on Wednesday appeals to you, we should talk. Our clients’ subject matter is often meaty and complex, but that doesn’t mean our work is boring. We tackle client problems creatively and fuel our work with substance and the art of persuasion.

Subject Matter is a multifaceted Creative Advocacy firm, and teamwork is integral to our success. We are comprised of experienced writers, advertising experts, media relations pros, digital specialists, filmmakers and lobbyists.
