An agency specialising in communication and design are seeking a digital advocate to lead them in moving in to a digital sphere through current demand from their clients.

The agency is 5 years old and currently specialises in comms and design with a current output of primarily graphic design and internal engagement. This ranges from brochures, posters, campaign theming, and internal comms and onscreen applications and web design. The clients are varied and range from a Charity, to a leading estate agency to a magazine publishers which will offer a lot of variety for a designer.

The agency is very successful with their current client base who are loyal and are providing them with more and more work. The business is driven by a strategic planner who has worked at some of London's top ad agencies. Their biggest challenge at the moment is that their team is currently made up of primarily graphic designers and more traditional led experts. Their clients are pushing them into a digital sphere with current project demands, and although some current projects, such as website design and onscreen applications have gone well, they need someone who understands digital design and the technical implications through and through to be the digital design director and senior digital designer of the agency.

Digital Design Director / Senior Digital Designer:
This role could work with a number of different titles but will probably appeal to an experienced Digital Design Director or a Senior Digital Designer from a smaller agency who has a lot of responsibility.
The role will include:
-Running projects from start to finish
-Client facing
-Idea generator
-Hands on design
-Potentially growing a digital team
-Work closely with an outsource development team

They are additionally hiring a digital strategist so you will work closely with this hire to create a format and structure for the role and projects.
They want a Digital Design Director / Senior Digital Designer who wants the opportunity to grow, have a challenge and want responsibility. There is a potential for someone to have equity in the company and really take the role and agency to their next stage.
They currently use a number of freelancers who are long term to the agency.

They are a very thoughtful bunch and aren't't introverted but it isn't a rowdy / boisterous environment. Everyone there works hard but has a lot of energy and excitement over producing good work.

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to embrace a challenge, take on their next project and make the role their own. A lovely, unusual agency with a lot to offer the right hire be it a Digital Design Director or Senior Digital Designer.
