Job Description


Studio Manager (Creative Design)

FULL-TIME . MARCH 13, 2023



 Motif’s creative team is seeking a bright, energetic candidate for the role of Studio Manager. The right candidate will have a desire to work with an innovative mindset, possess great attention to detail, and have enthusiasm for tackling multiple complex projects within a dynamic, fast-paced environment. The Studio Manager is responsible for intake, coordination and project management of print and digital creative projects and processes including design, production, proof-reading and development to ensure projects are on-track. This includes process definition and documentation, resource management, schedule development, trafficking, and effective communication across internal and external groups (i.e. marketing, account team, operations, etc.). If you excel at giving clarity to chaos, working and managing priorities with the support of our crazy creative team, we need you!

Why you’ll love this job.

The creative projects are as diverse in medium, as they are in demographics, so there is never a dull moment. This position is a linch-pin in the process, with collaboration with marketing to ops, senior management to creative. This is about as diverse as you can get. If we can dream it up, we make it happen - our only limitation on what is possible is ourselves (and sometimes Health Canada). Motif offers the ideal environment for creative brains to thrive, as design and innovation are an integral part of the entire process.
