ART DIRECTOR (Middleweight)

Job Description

A small but fast growing Marketing Communications agency is looking for an \ middleweight art director to bolster our existing creative resource, based in the heart of London.

The candidates should have AT LEAST 5 years experience working in an art director’s role either at a design agency or a marketing/advertising agency (above or below the line).

We would expect the person to NOT have worked in a formal team (writer/art director) as our art directors need to have a broad understanding of many areas such as production, print and photography and have some ability to write headlines. We do have copywriters in the agency so the ability to write is a positive but the role is more design orientated.

The need to be able to create ideas in both hand-drawn scamp form AND on a mac are essential so a good standard of drawing would be needed for presentation of ideas to clients.

A good knowledge of design programmes such as photoshop, illustrator and in-design also essential as all our art directors have to work up their ideas to a very high standard on the mac.

The person should be able to take instruction from the creative director or from other senior art directors as they will be working as part of existing client creative teams.

On occasion they may be required to be present in client meetings to discuss their ideas with clients so some experience of presenting would be good.

The person would be working on some of our most design orientated accounts (an iconic automotive brand and a modern technology/electronic product) so any experience on accounts in these areas would be good but not essential.

Both accounts have strong corporate and brand positionings so being able to understand how to work within existing brand guidelines is essential.

We want self-motivated, ambitious and out-going people to join our experienced team and help us to develop our creative output for the next stage of our agencies development.

Are you that person?
