WHO ARE YOU?
You live for design. You understand the boundaries and, more importantly, you seek to break them. You’ve accrued at least 5 years of professional design experience, recently holding an Art Direction or Senior Design position. You have great breadth and depth of work and have applied your skills to real-world, human problems, understanding the value of design and brand within a business context.
You know the difference between good and great work. You practice design excellence by not only identifying and delivering best practices, but also by exploring new territory to deliver innovation. You have a point of view about your work and a passion for design, and you express this by participating in the wider design community. You know that better work is done through collaboration and have a desire to work in a highly creative team.
You have experience leading projects (and other designers) and you like to lead by example. However, you are aware of the balance between ‘making’ and ‘managing’. You believe your team is your best asset and strive to get the best out of everyone - recognising strengths and weaknesses in order to deliver the best possible work. You understand your ego cannot get in the way of the work.
Your communication skills are not limited to visuals - you can write and present your ideas clearly and effectively. In fact, your client-facing skills are exemplary - you know how to build rapport, apply persuasion and justify ideas when required. Through your past experiences, you have developed great attention to detail and become highly organised. You have a proven ability to multi-task, managing multiple deadlines across multiple designers whilst working across a large range of design challenges.
