DDB, one of the market’s leading Advertising Groups with 60+1 years of presence, is looking for a nice & talented Senior Art Director with great aesthetics and deep understanding of graphic, communication and digital Design. The role will report to the team’s Creative Director.
This is a unique opportunity to become part of a team passionate about their work and contribute towards producing pixel perfect creative experiences across platforms. If you have 3+ years of experience in similar positions, we’d like to talk.
Who are you
You have an exceptional background in conceptual, above the line and digital Art Direction. With strong understanding of Digital Platforms.
You have a refined design eye, a conceptual mind, and always strive towards excellence in your craft. You can demonstrate your passion to solve complex communication challenges in a fast changing environment through creative strategy, concept and a deep understanding of “what makes them click".
You have led designer teams in the past, and if not it seems like your natural next step.
All the above are important requirements for the one we’re looking for but what’s most important to us is your work. Your portfolio can showcase your great sense of aesthetics, your ability to adapt in various styles, techniques & mediums. Your portfolio is the living proof that you can produce work that can stand out.
You are nice and talented!
Let’s break down what that means for us.
You have a positive attitude, seeing the opportunity even in a problem. You have a winner’s attitude and a “can do” mentality.
You care not only about your job but for the team as well. If someone spills their coffee, you clean the mess. Everyone wants to collaborate with you. Long story short: company > your team > yourself.
You are self-driven but you also have the charisma to motivate the ones around you. You don’t just follow orders, you create opportunities. You can connect those dots to create the big picture.
*Why nice? Our founder Bill Bernbach once said “Life is too short to sacrifice so much of it, to living with a bastard”.
You are talented in a way that you raise the bar for the whole team.
Your work has real impact on the business of DDB and most importantly on your client’s business. Impact doesn’t translate in the volume of work you produce, but is more about the quality of your outcome.
