The Speed Read:
Senior designer needed
This agency has been established for over a decade but despite an armful of awards and accolades, you may not have heard of them. You'll most likely have seen some of their beautiful work however. They prefer to let their output do the talking for them but following a period of impressive pitch wins, against some industry heavyweights, they are looking for another Senior Designer.
The work is a mix of commerce and arts & culture clients so you'll get a great variety of projects to work on. You'll have to be strong in both digital and branding as the deliverables can include anything from identity and implementation, digital, experiential and editorial design.
A self starter - the creatives own their own projects and have direct client contact so you'll need the confidence and professionalism to manage relationships with clients and suppliers alike.
Articulate - everything starts with an idea. You'll be given lots of opportunities to share yours.
Curious - you'll challenge briefs and not be afraid to ask why.
Constructive - you should be happy to manage and mentor junior team members and collaborate with them openly and constructively. You'll want to share your experience but you need to be able to listen too, age doesn't always ensure wisdom.
Commercial - you understand business needs and when to let something go. A deadline is a deadline - end of.
Experienced - you need to have had at least 5 years' of experience in a top ranking agency.
Cultured - you have a passion for design movements and cultural trends and you will bring these inspirations, rigour and knowledge to your work.
