A bit about who we’re after:
Are you a super-talented, finger-on-the-pulse, creative-thinking Art Director? Then you could be exactly the kind of Art Director we’re looking for. We need someone who can spin more than one plate at a time: who’s able to come up with killer digital ideas and deliver beautifully crafted creative work.
We’re a fast-growing digital agency based in Farringdon, and we’re on the hunt for someone enthusiastic and ideas-driven to work on a good mix of projects. You’ll have 3-4 years of experience, a good knowledge of social platforms and a love of sharing ideas. Our clients are pretty diverse, so it’s important that we find someone flexible, who can switch between styles seamlessly. You might be attracting homeowners one minute and mobile gamers the next, on everything from static social posts to big integrated campaigns, using illustration and photography, 3D, image libraries and stock, or bespoke film.
You’ll need to have a strong visual background and experience with content creation is a must – the majority of the work you’ll be involved in will be content related. You’ll be thoughtful, with a great knowledge of what is achievable on existing and emerging digital formats and platforms. You’ll be required to concept and oversee multiple projects and to be hands-on in some of the key ones.
A bit about us:
Waste are an independent digital creative agency, founded in June 2006. Fuelled by the purpose of not letting good ideas go to waste, we know the importance of speed, efficiency and innovation when it comes to digital creative. We are 55 people strong, and work with the likes of Supercell, the biggest mobile gaming company in the world; the Centrica group of companies; Camelot, who run The National Lottery; fashion house Mulberry; and entertainment leaders, Warner Bros. We’re all about a no-nonsense, no fuss, approach to digital creative. In short, we hate waste.
- Art Direction
You’re definitely up to date with the latest design trends, both on and off the web. You can execute a variety of styles. You have a deep understanding of everything digital plus the ability to learn fast – because we are primarily digital! You understand 3D and you might be called upon to art direct film and photo shoots.
You’re bold and original. You’re constantly asking questions. You can take a brief, work with strategists and copywriters and deliver original ideas, all wrapped up in a good-looking deck if required. You never shy away from a storyboard and you can turn out a handy scamp when necessary.
You need to be able to collaborate with our design and motion teams to help realise your vision for a project. You won’t be required to be hands on, but keen attention to layout, typography, grids and pixels is a must.
Experience - 3+ years agency experience.
