About AllKinds Studio:

AllKinds is a multi-disciplinary design and fabrication studio that uses all kinds of materials to create custom art installations. With commissions from corporations, organizations, art consultants, branding agencies and architecture firms, we tailor-make each artwork to fit large-scale spaces for brands, interiors, events and movements. Our dedicated team of designers, artists and fabricators mix materials, technologies and techniques to create art and objects that are innovative, meaningful, beautiful and on-brand. We thrive in our collaborative approach, welcoming new ideas and getting excited about the “what ifs”. Our combined skill sets and handmade approach enable us to produce anything we can conceive, including even the most complex or technical concepts. With every project, our shared goal is to create a meaningful environment that tells a story in an elevated, authentic and impactful way. And nothing makes us happier than creating that story utilizing materials that were once meant for the landfill and giving them new life. At the completion of our projects, we make every effort to repurpose, recycle or donate leftover materials to ensure they are given the longest, most meaningful lives possible.

Below are our company’s six Core Values. If you feel like these speak to you, please keep on reading!

Open-Minded: We push ourselves to learn new techniques and acquire new skills to enhance and evolve our work. With every project, we welcome all ideas and encourage new ways of thinking from our team and clients. There are no limits to what we can produce.

Collaborative: We are accessible, a resource and a true partner to our clients, giving them personalized attention and brainstorming with them to find the best possible solution. We view every project as an opportunity to do something amazing together.

Supportive: We are a team who encourages each other and works together in a positive, collaborative environment. We listen, problem solve, discuss and create together without ego. We learn, teach and share new skills with each other to make the team better as a whole.

Driven: We are passionate about creating and sharing meaningful, beautiful art with the world. We work hard to create unique, memorable and innovative art installations that make a lasting impression.

Professional: We present ourselves and our work with confidence and clarity. We earn respect and trust by setting clear expectations and sticking to the boundaries we set with kindness and conviction.

Conscious: We reuse, repurpose, recycle and donate with every project, as much as we can. We thoughtfully plan a project from the start to minimize environmental impact and maximize our social impact.

About the Marketing Coordinator:

Our Marketing Coordinator loves to help showcase our skills and build them up. They will be a filter for the voice and style of our company and portray ‘the company’ in the truest sense in our marketing collateral. This person takes our style guide seriously and cares about our company voice.

You are in charge of the outward facing spirit of the company - maintaining a consistent look and voice. You will keep our capabilities decks updated to showcase our existing project portfolio and collaborate with Sales to help customize marketing materials for prospective clients. When a project wraps, you’ll be in charge of scheduling our photographer to document the work and updating our website and collateral with the new highlights. In addition, you’ll spearhead outreach to industry publications, blogs, and newsletters to share our work. We have worked very hard to create our brand, and we need someone to grow our digital presence and better amplify the work happening in our studio with our amazing team!

While you are keeping Instagram updated and sending noteworthy news on behalf of the company, you must pay attention to the media - is there a big issue we should know about or respond to? This position is for an empathic learner and talented storyteller who thrives on keeping a pulse on industry happenings and world news.

Marketing Coordinator Requirements / Qualifications:

- 2-5 years marketing experience

- Bachelor's Degree in marketing or related field

- Knowledge of Google Analytics and SEO

- Experience building an audience and/or newsletter following

- Extremely organized, detail-focused and solid time management skills

- Excellent people skills and communication

- Able to juggle multiple deliverables simultaneously

- Able to identify your own mistakes and seek improvement

- Proficient using Mailchimp, G Suite (Drive, Docs, Slides) and Gmail

- InDesign+ Photoshop experience preferred (needs to be able to edit photos)

- Linguistically skilled and able to write enticing copy

- Must be able to work in the US

Environment: We have a working studio where fabrication of large-scale artworks happen. It's awesome (and noisy, dusty, and smelly at times… but it’s the sounds, feeling, and smell of creativity hard at work!). This is a remote position but as the company grows it may be decided to move the position in house to assume more responsibilities. This will be assessed quarterly.

Compensation and hours:

Compensation based on experience. Anticipated 8-16 hours per month to start. We are a growing company and the current position is intended for greater responsibility as we continue to grow.

Our studio hours are 9am - 5:30pm M-F, but as this is a part time position, we will work together to set a schedule.
