Creative Services Coordinator
Location: Lansing, MI
This is a creative firm, with very little drywall, zero carpeted cubicles, and one awesome mini basketball hoop. It’s fast-paced and ever-changing with incredibly talented, creative, and fun people. Every day you’ll come in to a 100-year-old building in an urban setting located just steps from downtown Lansing amenities including the River Trail, minor league baseball and soccer stadium, restaurants, and parks.
The Creative Services Coordinator is responsible for a diverse range of responsibilities. Primary tasks would be managing client services and overseeing client projects from start to finish for our creative studio.

Internally, the position will communicate client expectations and goals to staff, vendors, and contract employees. We are seeking an individual who is eager, curious, and open to continuous learning.
