Position Overview:

The Cleveland Cavaliers Art Director is responsible for leading and guiding a team of highly motivated and talented professionals who create “wow” experiences through creativity, brand development and graphic design.   The CGX team (Cavaliers Graphics) is obsessed with creating the most dynamic, innovative and ground-breaking content to drive branding, marketing campaigns, corporate partnership activation, ticket and retail sales efforts, and fan engagement initiatives for the Cleveland Cavaliers & Quicken Loans Arena organization.

The Art Director is responsible for innovation, creative direction, quality print production, superior client satisfaction, results-driven management and professional development of the CGX graphics team.  The ideal candidate must be versatile, engrained in design, sports, entertainment and creative culture, and have the ability to concept and develop major projects effectively both individually and within a team setting.  This must be done while also mastering the art of evolving quick thoughts into usable content on a deadline.  In addition to leading a team, the Art Director is responsible for maintaining a significant personal design project list that will range from small to large initiatives.

The Art Director will report directly to the Senior Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer, and will work in partnership with marketing team leaders throughout the organization on a variety of projects.  This experienced leader will guide the creative content development for campaigns and team print projects in support of organizational messaging and objectives.  This role works in support of all organizational properties, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Quicken Loans Arena, Lake Erie Monsters, Cleveland Gladiators, Canton Charge, and other key properties and projects as defined throughout the year.

Successful and results-driven client partnerships (internal and external) are critical.  Content that drives incredible, jaw-dropping fan engagement is Job #1.  A wildly creative vision (with a high skill set toward execution) is a must.  Flexibility… an “All for one.

  • In addition to the development of base concepts and print production support, a successful marketing campaign will integrate a wide array of creative resources that will extend the marketing message in fun and unique ways throughout all organizational assets.  The Art Director will play a key role in supporting opportunities to extend the brand so that we blur the line between retail messaging and fan engagement.
  • Nurture a tight bond and partnership with our marketing group and all other internal teams to create, develop and integrate innovative design and brand elements into all outgoing content.  This includes a proactive approach toward activating corporate partnerships and ticket sales campaigns, and an obsession with successfully activating all fan engagement opportunities.
  • Inspire excellence in copywriting.
  • Collaborate with team advertising agencies and third party production partners as needed.

DESIGN & PRODUCTION

  • Communicate with outside print vendors on all aspects of projects.

  • Provide clear, proactive, and results-driven communication with all production and marketing teams and clients (internal and external) to guarantee strong implementation of all campaign needs at the highest possible level. 
  • Responsible for consistent logo usage, and the maintenance of established graphics standards.
  • Maintain a current status on all on-going projects and guarantee that all deliverables are met in a timely manner; guarantee that all brand and stakeholder goals are successfully achieved.

MAXIMIZE MARKETING AND CROSS PROMOTIONS

  • Support the development of activation strategies for major ticket sales and partnership campaigns, with the goal of consistently over-delivering for the greatest value proposition possible.
  • Assist in the creative development of the teams’ respective promotional schedules, event activations, marketing messages and content and ticket messaging, as needed.
  • Motivate opportunities to effectively utilize CGX created content across multiple platforms (i.e., in-arena, web, social, broadcast, etc.)
  • Clearly communicate branding strategies across internal teams.
  • Partner with all appropriate internal sales and marketing teams to successfully fulfill revenue generating commitments while maintaining a fan-focused and brand-based presentation.
  • Strongly support the development and creative concept of saleable inventory.

DEDICATED TO TEAM MEMBER DEVELOPMENT

  • Prioritize the professional development and amplify the roles of our CGX team.
  • Focus on building the quality, depth and capabilities of the team, enhancing our creative capabilities and driving quality and innovation. 
  • Manage, support and direct all team members associated with CGX for the success of the team; a focus on nurturing the positive culture of our environment is the highest priority. 
  • Prioritize cross training to successfully develop team members to achieve their highest potential, and to provide CGX with a talented depth chart that creates strength and stability in our operations.
  • Define and implement training opportunities to maintain and build team member skills.
  • Prioritize assignments for team members, and ensure they are equipped with the information and platform they need to be successful.
