You are an artist: beyond everything else, you love to make things look amazing, guiding and overseeing the aesthetic integrity of every project from start to finish. Brand films, online content, concepts and moodboards, engaging comms, impactful websites, clickable social posts, brand experiences, complementary product imagery and everything else that comes along.
You are a conceptual thinker with a curious and imaginative mind: you thrive on challenging yourself with new topics and genres - from advertising concepts to new digital products, brand strategy to social media. You’ve either done it before or are keen to learn more.
You are a technophile: you love to stay at the cutting edge of technology, and the interactions between behaviour, culture and digital platforms and products. Someone with a keen interest in the future.
You are a natural entrepreneur and collaborator: you’re equally happy working in a creative team to brainstorm a campaign as you are working with designers and developers to build a new product - or working on your own to reimagine the visual redirection of a brand.
Bring to life, through inspiring visuals, the concept and execution of integrated cross-channel initiatives - including large web initiatives, online advertising & digital marketing.
Meaningfully contribute to the ideation and conceptualisation of marketing and content ideas.
Understand the needs, motivations, and aspirations of your audiences, so that you can interact with them in the most effective, compelling, and engaging way possible.
Actually art direct — be able to craft compelling and on brand website visuals, as well as effective posters, banners, and moving image.
Leverage and optimise relevant resources, and ensure that projects stay on brief.
Attend project briefing meetings, or project kick-offs, where required.
Question briefs where appropriate – providing extra value and pushing for the most effective solutions.
Tailor the content and style of individual visual assignments according to their purpose - whether they are intended to sell or inform.
Research your client's industry and their audience.
Work with your team to review the impact your work has had.
Assist with business pitches to win new clients or projects.
Be proactive and self-determined.
