I’m all about helping our clients have a less stressful, more successful business. What really excites me is when clients start making more money while getting their weekends back! Whether I’m working with a marketing manager at a Fortune 500 company or a bootstrapped entrepreneur, I love seeing these amazing businesses discover new, best-fit leads through the work Designity does. I’m also a huge fan of creating an environment where Creatives can grow, bring new ideas to projects, and be themselves. In my experience, Designity does that better than anyone else.
Digital Marketing Director & Head of Design
Creative Directors at Designity are the cornerstone of our success. Each client at Designity is matched with a dedicated Creative Director who possesses expertise in your industry.
Your Creative Director serves as your main point of contact, alleviating the need for you to reiterate your brand and goals to various creatives. They take charge of discussing your project objectives, crafting comprehensive project briefs, and outlining a detailed timeline that encompasses all necessary phases and deadlines. Above all, your designated Creative Director is responsible for handpicking the appropriate creative professional from our verified US-based network and overseeing them to ensure top-notch quality.
Consider your Creative Director as the conductor of a finely tuned orchestra, guiding every stage of the design process to deliver five-star results seamlessly. This approach lets you concentrate on more critical matters without any hassle.
Working at Designity never gets boring! You have the opportunity to work with clients in multiple industries and a variety of projects. Thanks to our subscription model, we will bring high quality clients who are looking for ongoing collaboration with you. There is also no need to work on projects yourself; you get access to a verified US-based Creative community to collaborate and bring your ideas to life. We’ve also reduced the administrative work for you by giving members of our community access to the latest processes, guidelines, and trends in the creative industry.
We know how important career progression and growth is to members of our creative community. With that in mind, we’ve built a very clear path with four levels (aspiring, temporary, verified, and super) where you can join at your experience level and follow the path all the way to Executive level Design roles. We are still a start-up but are scaling at a rapid pace, so we have tons of opportunities at Designity where you get to take control of your future and grow with great, consistent performance.
Designity is a creative community, not your traditional design firm, marketplace, or staffing agency. We have a unique, collaborative model that allows Creative Directors to collaborate with verified Creatives with different skill sets to get projects done. While our community is fully remote, we limit the community exclusive to the US market for both clients and Creatives. By doing this, we are able to deliver a great experience for our Creative community.
Our community-first culture is part of the magic here at Designity. We have a casual, friendly, inclusive, agile environment - and we’re committed to keeping it that way. We have a commitment to be Positively Transparent. This doesn’t mean it’s all sunshine and rainbows, but it does mean that we say it like it is. We don’t hold back, and we work to make sure that the Creative Community is fully aware of all of the successes and challenges. We are also Feedback Seekers - we take your feedback very seriously and turn it into actionable items. We use surveys, 1-on-1 meetings, and an open-door policy to make sure every member of the community feels that they have a voice.
We have managed processes in place from project brief creator to timeline creation tools, to project delivery system to make the collaboration easier for you. These have all been carefully crafted to make it easier for your team to get away from the administrative work and back to what they do best. And while we do have processes in place, we continually make revisions that make sense and improve quality and productivity. We believe in continuous improvement!
You’ll find a wide array of perks and benefits from being a member of the Designity Creative Community. Not only do you have the opportunity for a competitive stable income, but there are additional perks depending upon your level on the growth plan. We offer NFT certifications, sponsorship to in-person gatherings, VR glasses, Visa/Green Card sponsorship, equipment and software, annual stipends for remote work-stations, and for our highest levels we offer additional perks to go towards relocation and home-buying to your destination of choice within the US. All W2 employees also have access to medical and dental insurance along with unlimited PTO and 401k contribution matching.
A collaborative community of Creatives! At Designity, we’re breaking the mold and building something very different from the traditional design agency. Designity is a carefully vetted community of individuals who are specialized and highly talented. We are very selective in our approach with an average of just 3% of applicants invited to join our Creative Community. We use the term Creative as an all-inclusive description for individuals from varied backgrounds who work on projects such as graphic design, web design, UX/UI, coding, copywriting, illustrating, video production, video animating, etc. If you enjoy working on a wide variety of marketing materials and projects, and Designity is a good fit - we welcome you to the community!
Creative Directors are responsible for managing each project from briefs to completion. This includes establishing and maintaining timelines, budgets, files, project briefs, and workflows. While Creative Directors do not complete any of the work themselves, they’re responsible for guiding Creatives to complete it and ensure five-star quality. This is done by mentoring and providing sufficient support and inspiration to execute the vision. Additionally, the most important responsibility of a Creative Director at Designity is maintaining relationships with clients. Creative Directors are the primary point of contact with clients and are responsible for listening, understanding, and communicating each step of the creative process to all involved. Lastly, you also get to build your own team from our US Based vetted community of Creatives, and they bring your ideas to life. When building their team, Creative Directors may select from our exclusive vetted network of Creatives at four career levels: Aspiring, Emerging, Senior, and Pro.
We don’t judge you based on your résumé and your portfolio. Designity has an efficiently streamlined process to hire and onboard new Creative Directors. In order to join the community, you’ll need to follow our interactive vetting process. This will guide you to share your skill sets and talent with us. If accepted, you’ll be invited to complete a quick challenge project, which will help us evaluate your expertise further. This entire process normally takes about 2–3 weeks due to careful screening. Once passed, we’ll prepare you in our onboarding series to start working with clients.
The ideal candidate is a hybrid between a visual designer and project manager who has a passion for guiding others. As a Creative Director at Designity, you’ll need to be familiar with various types of design and marketing categories and their processes. This means you’ll need to be specialized in at least three areas of expertise so that we are able to match you with clients effectively. With that being said, comfortability in shifting gears is often necessary, and we also provide opportunities to learn new skills and techniques as you grow.
Based on our agreement with clients, each understands they can only expect our Creative Directors to work on one project at a time within their plan. However, if clients want to work on multiple projects simultaneously, they have the option to purchase add-ons to add more Creatives to your team. You will be compensated for each additional Creative you manage if the number exceeds the capacity of the client’s plan. As for revisions, there’s no limit on the number of requests made by clients. Clients are entitled to this benefit as long as they’re active clients with Designity.
You get to determine your own compensation at Designity. It’s all based on your level in the Designity Creative Community, quality of work, availability, and the number of clients you’re able to take on. Creative Designers average between $85,000 – $95,000 per year when working full time with Designity, but you have the freedom to scale your work and can build your income to fit your lifestyle. All members of the Designity Creative Community have the flexibility to determine their own workload and can scale up and down in the way that works best for them.
Once our sales team qualifies the clients, they sign up and go through our onboarding process to provide you with their company info, brand style, and project details. Based on that, our matchmaking team will assign the right Creative Director to the client based on your industry knowledge, time zone, expertise, availability, etc. After the matchmaking the client schedules their first kickoff calls to discuss the details and get started. After the kickoff call, you’ll put together a project brief and timeline and share the opportunity with our vetted Creative Community. You have the ability to select and assign the Creatives based on their expertise and your knowledge of their skills and productivity. You then begin working with the Creative(s) to complete projects according to your timeline. Upon completion, you’re responsible for presenting the work to the client and collecting their feedback.
All Creative Directors join Designity on a 1099 basis, however, there is the possibility to become a full-time W-2 employee after 45 days of successful collaboration. This is entirely based on each individual’s desire to be involved in the Designity Creative Community, performance, availability, and the length of time working with us. You get to build your own experience with the Designity Community. Creative Directors have the opportunity to work full-time, part-time, gig-basis, etc. You can scale up your work during certain times of the year, and scale back down when the need calls for it. Once you’re a member of Designity, the sky's the limit!
