Job Description


MID–SENIOR ART DIRECTOR

WHAT'S EXPECTED OF YOU
Here's a very short list of just some of the things you’ll be doing:

  • Helping to define and enhance our brand, and applying it to everything (from our website to our sales collateral to branded Stan Smith's).
  • Owning that brand, and helping to manage external suppliers in conjunction with the marketing director.
  • Driving (along with the marketing director) a global advertising campaign. Every. Single. Aspect of it. You’ll have input into concepts, strategy and of course, lead the design.
  • Mentoring younger designers.
  • Feeding into every other aspect of our business, from app UI/UX to offline events.

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
What do you need to bring to the table?

  • At least 5 years of strategic art direction, brand development and implementation experience.
  • Pixel–perfect attention to detail.
  • Expert–level digital design.
  • Experience working with developers (you don't need to write the code, but you need to know what makes their lives easier).
  • A portfolio that shows diverse, comprehensive brand work and real–world business design.
  • Experience with video production and/or animation would be a major bonus.

 

CULTURE

  • Pro–active – No waiting around being told what to do
  • Obsessed with being the best – You don't need to be told to make it better, you seek out opportunities to do so
  • Committed – We serve clients around the world, and there are times when you need to engage out of hours
  • Friendly – We're a small office. Personality is worth its weight in gold
  • A fast learner – we'll help you get started. You’ll get support. But you need to want to grow and improve and enhance your skills. Trust us, there’s no ceiling at our company.
  • A leader and guide– we have a learning culture, and you may be asked to help others develop their skills based on your knowledge and experience

 

ON OFFER
We know we ask a lot. But we also offer a lot:

  • Full medical insurance.
  • Better than average compensation.
  • The chance to work in the most incredible collaborative space in Cape Town.
  • Your birthday off every year and a host of perks (the bar opens at 4 on a Friday).
  • Flexible work hours (no one likes Cape Town traffic).
  • The opportunity to work with a company that’s aiming for nothing less than global domination (with a smile of course).
  • To be part of a driven, global team who wake up singing "everything is awesome" in a non–creepy way.

NB! Please don't forget to include Portfolio work done by candidate upon application
