Creative Director’s Mission

Hi! We’re Jam3 a design and experience agency and part of the Media.Monks family. We help modern brands launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from around the world. We have Strategy, Creative, Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). This amazing fusion of talents lets us make things we could never make alone.

Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process.

If you like making good things even better you’ll fit right in.

As our new Creative Director, you’ll be responsible for providing award winning creative direction and smart, innovative executions for our clients worldwide. We're uniquely project-based which means we’re always working on something interesting, and for modern clients like adidas, Google, and Sonos.

Made it this far? Great. Read on for more details about our day-to-day.
