Digital Designer

Digital Designer

You’re not a typical designer. You're capable of designing brilliant solutions while ensuring you deliver for the end user. You live, breathe and sleep creativity, yet think, plan and execute strategically. Mediocrity frustrates you and complacency bores you, so you strive to shock and inspire through your work. You understand that simplicity isn’t simple, and that great design is achieved after extensive exploration.

We are looking for a genius designer willing to lend their brilliance to take on unconventional challenges in an unconventional company.

Qualities we’re looking for:

Passion
You are head-over-heels passionate about all things design and you strive to make an impact. If you could retire comfortably today, you would still be designing and creating.

Visionary
You not only pay meticulous attention to detail, you also envision the big picture. You understand how your work adds value now and looking forward.

Creative
For you, creativity isn’t about making pretty things, it’s an approach to solving challenges.

Communication
You’re comfortable in presenting your solutions in a business setting during crucial stages of the design process.

Collaboration
You crave to enhance your work through input and feedback, and support others in return.

  • Collaborating with other designers and producers on video and motion projects
  • Contributing creatively and strategically to projects with other members of the design and marketing team, as well as collaborating across different departments.
  • Contributing to brainstorming meetings and sharing ideas often

Requirements

  • An amazing portfolio (this matters more than any other credential)
  • 3 to 5 years of designing for online media and brands
  • A positive mindset matters, so does a sense of humour
  • A confident understanding of fundamental marketing and branding principles

  • Very comfortable using online media and social sites (like YouTube and Facebook)
  • Ability to creatively execute within branding guidelines

  • You have the ability to create powerful presentations in PowerPoint
