At History Factory, you’ll discover smart, fascinating people building creative ideas and doing interesting and unusual work—collecting, organizing and interpreting materials found deep within a company’s history. Together, we design creative ways to interpret the gems of authentic content we find in a company’s past to help it chart its future.

We’re a community like no other, consisting of artists, writers, designers, historians, curators, researchers, planners…all drawn by the opportunity to use the power of history to shape the future. Don’t have a history degree? That’s ok. We prefer you demonstrate an inquisitive mind, a collaborative spirit, infectious enthusiasm, and a strong desire to help our clients craft the next chapter in their story.

We’re looking for a writer / Associate Creative Director with a strong content and conceptual focus to help lead our teams to delivering their (and our) best work.

What you’ll do in this role:

Identify story topics and develop conceptual approaches for communications plans, publications, exhibits and anniversaries

Create content that consistently connects an organization’s past with its present and future

Translate researching findings and insights into compelling story topics

Develop written content for communications programs, including exhibits, websites, social media, publications and videos

Own the story of clients, maintaining and developing a deep understating of all aspects of their history, brand and vision

Prepare and conduct interviews with client contacts at all levels of an organization

Perform research within corporate archival collections and outside repositories to discover information, develop messaging, and assemble baseline factual information (timelines, leadership chronologies, product launches, etc.)

Under the leadership of a Creative Director, supervise the work of a cross-functional team of creatives (e.g., graphic designers, copywriters, curators, third-party vendors)

Support delivery of creative strategy/plans, concepts, and executions for all kinds of media: corporate publications, museum-quality exhibits and environmental branding, video and digital executions, to name a few

Work in the weeds of managing creative projects, shepherding deliverables from concept to completion

Identify and nurture the best ideas that are uniquely History Factory. Connect a client’s past with its future goals and opportunities by digging deep to uncover and understand a company’s historical insights.

Cultivate trusting relationships with clients, partners, and other internal teams.

What you’ll need for this role:

A strong portfolio of work showcasing your writing, content and conceptual expertise

An appreciation and passion for the craft of making things. You’re as much a doer as you are a strategic thinker.

Have a good understanding of the corporate world, how organizations function, and how corporate storytelling can be used to meet broader strategic goals

The ability to easily toggle between the big picture and the nitty gritty. You’re as comfortable working on a strategic level as you are diving in and getting your hands dirty.

The people skills to build cohesion and collaboration among a diverse group of creatives and third party stakeholders.

Application Details:

Interested? Please email your resume and a portfolio link to [email protected]

In your cover letter, tell us about your favorite concept work in your portfolio and why you love it.

Interested? Please submit your resume and a portfolio/writing samples.

Preference is given to those who are located in the Washington, D.C. area or within drop-in distance, but we’re open to candidates located anywhere in the U.S.
