SLANT is looking for a digital marketing nerd with a creative brain who’s passionate about finding ways to increase online effectiveness.
SLANT is hiring a business development ninja who’s passionate about making connections and hella good at curating qualified leads in interesting new markets.
Editor's Note: We asked Neal Karn – SLANT's newest team member – to draft a blog post this week. After a small knife-fight, she finally agreed. We're glad she did...
As a new full-time employee, I'm sort of stunned at the things I've been learning about SLANT these past few weeks. So then I think...if I didn't know about these things, then you probably didn't know about them either. So as my first blog post (and since SLANT totally sucks at the humble brag) I'm going to drop some SLANT facts on you...
By now you might have heard the rumors. They're true. It’s been a good run and like all good things, it must come to an end sometime.
In keeping with the Halloween spirit, we thought we'd show off some work that was KILLED IN COLD BLOOD, never to see the light of day. (ok, so the work was "politely dismissed" but that doesn't sound very halloweeny). Have fun browsing the land of the dead. MUWAHAHAHA....
Back in Februrary we won some ADDY's at this year's AAF Greenville Addy Awards....and then we got busy and forgot to tell you about it.
So file this under the "Better Late Than Never" category as we congratulate the following clients on letting us do award winning work for them!

SLANT Charleson is seeking a Marketing + Communications ninja
We are looking for an energetic marketing and advertising professional who understands strategy, loves telling a story, and knows how to just get it done. Marketing experience and knowing your way around the Mac is a must. And let’s be honest...a little personality doesn’t hurt either.

We're pleased to announce the addition of two new members to the SLANT team. Stay tuned for an official announcement.
A huge thank you to all of the talented candidates who sent us their creative and insipring applications. We wish you all the best of luck!
SLANT is pleased to announce that Davis Barnes has joined the firm as head of Marketing Intelligence.
With over 10 years of marketing and business development experience, Davis will be working with SLANT’s clients not only to maintain relationships but to guide them through each step of their project and make sure their marketing plans are well defined and executed.
Davis comes to SLANT after serving a sponsorship management role at Family Circle Cup, a premier international women’s tennis tournament. She worked with marketing leaders at Family Circle Cup’s parent company, Meredith Corporation, to incorporate advertisers at the company’s various media holdings (Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, Fitness, More, etc.) into the Family Circle Cup event platform.
Davis earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Virginia and fully intends to be counted among their notable alumni, right next to Katie Couric. Despite our serious addiction to Clemson, we won’t give her too much of a hard time for being a wahoo.
“The role of Marketing Intelligence at SLANT has developed quite a reputation with our clients, and we’re happy that Davis has accepted the challenge of building on that tradition”, says Will Bullock, partner and head of Graphic Intelligence.
Founding partner and Creative Director Christopher Cecil said: “I just hope she doesn’t notice that’s a cardboard cutout of me in my office down there. I think I forgot to tell her I'm working out of our new Greenville office.”
Despite the unfortunate trend of California defections [exhibit A, exhibit B] we’ve encountered, Davis is an exceptional addition to the SLANT team. We hope you’ll like her as much as we do. Come by and say hello or email her: dbarnes (at) slantmedia.net.
Today marks the end of the “Lauren Era” here at SLANT. While we’re sad to see her go, we’re excited for her and her husband/partner-in-crime Kevin to make a fresh start in San Francisco (which reminds us – what is it about California taking away our marketing managers??)
So in true SLANT fashion, let's send Lauren off with a list of things that made her so great here:
- She can't be bothered to know speed limits, gas prices or whatever crap beer you're drinking right now.
- This video makes her laugh......and laugh....and laugh...until she has to go home for the day to recoup.
- All new employees will now be required to take the Spirit Animal Test
- Christopher is now aware that his "I'm-Listening-To-You" face looks more like a "I-Think-You're-Stupid" face
- We're all a little beer snobby now...and kinda like it.
When asked to share a quote about what she'd miss most about working at SLANT she did this:
We'll take that as a compliment.
Best of luck, Lauren & Kevin – we'll see you on Twitter!
Team SLANT was there to cheer on our founder + creative director's inclusion in the 2011 CRBJ Forty Under 40 class (here's the backstory). Check out Christopher's CRBJ bio - you'll laugh, you'll cry. And read up on the rest of these Charleston hotshots. We'd list everyone we want to congratulate but that list would get, like, 40 people long.
Take a tour of the event pics plus this ridiculous and wonderful one from @obviouslee. Now, who are you nominating next year?
