Highlands College Creative Director

Highlands College is a biblical higher education institution that exists to supply the church with leaders of character, competence, and spiritual maturity, holistically trained to live lives of eternal impact by fulfilling the Great Commission. Now in our tenth year, Highlands College is experiencing an accelerated period of transformation with the achievement of significant vision milestones that include state approval to award a degree, entering the final stages of a national accreditation process, and the completion of a world-class, cutting-edge new campus. Simultaneously, we seek to shape a public identity that is as distinctly collegiate as it is innovative, while raising our profile among key audiences.

Summary of Responsibilities
The Creative Director will help lead the visual expression of this transformation through the development and management of creative vision, visual brand identity, and creative solutions for Highlands College. Reporting directly to the Executive Vice President of Communications and Marketing, the Creative Director leads the design vision in collaboration with cross-functional marketing and communications teams. Collectively, this group will conceive and develop creative ideas and concepts for campaigns as well as content that will have positive, measurable audience impact across owned, shared, and paid channels. The Creative Director will lead and manage a new team of in-house designers, video producers, creative professionals, project managers, and, as necessary, freelance talent, vendors, agencies, and partners. Together, this team will work collaboratively and creatively to reach, grow, and inspire audiences that are increasingly external while continuing to serve the internal operations and goals of the institution.
