We're Hiring: Art Director

Based in Our Aberdeen, Houston or Singapore Office

Once upon a time, in traditional types of ad agencies, there was a type of person called an art director. The art director would team up with a copywriter to form a creative team. This proverbial visual powerhouse would take design to another level, devising concepts as well as looking at visual direction, imagery, layout, kerning, image selection and typography. But that was then.

Now, we are looking for the next level of art director. One that can work in ink, but can think in pixels. One that can influence campaign creation and roll-out, predominantly across digital channels, including extensive web design and inbound campaigns. This is a great opportunity to work with teams across the world, on international brands, creating fresh and extremely varied work that can, and will, get people talking.
