Senior Designer - Digital & Branding
Who we're looking forOur ideal candidate is a multifaceted creature who has two qualities in greater or lesser parts; They should be a big thinker who can bring new ideas to the table and a great designer with a natural flare. We'd expect an excellent standard of execution from any Senior Designer in our ranks. They should have skills for mark making, look and feel development, typography as well as visual system work. The successful candidatewill be able to apply these across a range of touch points including digital, environmental and print comms. Audiovisual, 3D or spacial skills a big bonus but not essential.They need to be fluent in 'brand' and comfortable with strategy' conversations, not just graphic design. In addition to this we'd really like an ideas person or an experimenter, someone who likes to use their brain to develop concepts, tackle tricky problems, decode communications, or play with words. As part of this they should understand how process contributes to different kinds of outcome, how the user experience is a consideration of the design process, and how their work impacts on people in the real world.Attitude and temperament are crucial: we've no room or an over-precious prima donna or a 9-5er. That said, we do work hard but are not a sweat shop. Someone who is happy to have their 'comfort zone' pushed, and to work positively (with support) in unstructured and fuzzy situations will get the most from working here.Our new team member will need to be a proactive selfstarter articulate, pragmatic, reliable and 'grown-up for 'their age'.What experience will they have (ideally)We are looking for the right person, not the right experience, but as a guide they'll probably have a minimum of five years experience, ideally some of whichshould have been spent in a top agency/consultancy or smaller scale 'studio' outfit.They'll have already worked on larger size, longer running projects and proved they are a good team player. Ideally, they'll also know how to take a job forward to repro and print and have contributed to 'digital first' type projects too. Audio-visual experience (scripting/storyboarding identity presentations and brand story films) would be a bonus, but are by no means essential.
