The Senior Art Director is a designer, art director and team leader. A mentor and support for the whole design team.
It is a hands-on roll, balancing and fulfilling the needs of the department, the designers, and your individual workload simultaneously.
Our design department is a fast-paced environment where creative artistry and strategic thinking drive everything we do.
As a design team leader, you will be responsible for sustaining and elevating the visual output across the studio. Your responsibilities include design, art direction, managing and contributing to recruitment of new design talent and mentoring junior designers and interns, as well as serving as a sounding board and inspiration for the entire team.
The Senior Art Director must be first and foremost a creative problem solver who can both express your own vision and elevate others.
You will be needed to participate in key client meetings and creative presentations. You will report directly to the Creative Director, with whom you will have a fluid and communicative relationship. All work that goes through the studio must be reviewed by the Creative Director, and you will be responsible to make sure that your own work, and the work of others under you, is prepared to a level that he can give constructive feedback, within effective timelines.
As Senior Art Director you must be unbiased in your support of all designers and account managers. As a senior member of the team, you must lead by example. As a key point of the studio’s quality control, you must have an extreme eye for detail with your own work as well as when overseeing others. And, as a member of the senior team, you will be expected to support and generate ideas with regards to progressing the agency through searching for design talent, supporting clients and suggesting new business opportunities.
