Art Director / Senior Designer
Patten Studio creates interactive experiences that bridge the physical and digital, melding tangibility, materiality, and technology to expand the vocabulary of design. Using computation like any other design material our work introduces new narratives for how we perceive interactive technology and engage with each other in the built environment.
Patten Studio is a small but nimble team focused on design-led interactivity that creates richer, more nuanced interactions between people. Through a unique mix of large-scale installations, brand-specific projects, and in-studio research and development, we bring together design, technology, and architecture to create imaginative interactive experiences for clients ranging from global luxury brands and tech giants to museums and agencies.
As Art Director you will be responsible for leading projects through all stages of design, from research, ideation, and design development to production and execution, with particular focus on design development. You should be comfortable working on your own, thinking through design scenarios and able to collaborate with others cross discipline. Be fearless, be positive, be memorable.
Patten Studio is not your typical creative agency, you should thrive in environments that give you the space to define your role. That said, there are some basic but crucial skills required.
- Brainstorm and create concepts that push the boundaries of interactive experience going beyond traditional screens with particular focus on the built environment.
- Outstanding communication and presentation skills with a solid understanding of human-centered design principles
- Comfortable designing anything from printed collateral to a pitch deck
- Superb design abilities with experience in 3D space to create compelling visual presentations that encompass powerful narratives.
- Strong interpersonal and client management skills, be passionate, curious, and genuine. We like that.
- A sense of humor, preferably a good one 😉

At Patten Studio, we create unique interactive installations, merging hardware and software systems that enable multi-sensory interaction; with a strong emphasis on designing interactions that are intuitive and natural, employing all aspects of human faculty – the visual, tactile, and aural.
Each semester we offer a variety of internships in our Brooklyn based studio, bringing in exceptional student talent to work closely with a highly creative team focused on building interactive engagements with novel actuation schemes.
Multidisciplinary by nature, we welcome students with a wide range of skill sets in a variety of areas including: software development, engineering, fabrication, and graphic design that encompass all aspects of project development from brainstorming and ideation, to production and execution.
All candidates should be able to work well autonomously, knowing when to ask questions, as well as collaborate well with those around you. If you encounter a problem, think about potential solutions, vet them with other members of the team and reevaluate. We want thinkers and doers, those who ask questions and find answers.
The internship program is an opportunity to learn and grow alongside experienced technologists and designers as we expand the vocabulary of design and contribute to the larger dialogue about how technology can be developed in ways that meaningfully connect us to one another.
