Art Director

Australia Creative

The role

Art Directors at We Are Social are responsible for creating ideas worth talking about. You visualize them in a way that’s genuine to the brands they belong to and magnetic to the people you want to connect with.

It’s all about love at first sight. You know that first impressions have never been so important. Defining the right look and feel you set the difference between engagement and oblivion. Advertising must be social, and social must be visual.

Fast culture is your playground. Whether you own existing visual trends or create new ones, you know how to bring people and companies together. Keeping up with music, gaming, trends, and the news is not a chore, it’s what you naturally do.

Socially and digitally savvy, you will be able to realise your ideas in any channel depending on the brief, idea and objective.
You are passionate about this industry and the work that comes out of it, and have strong opinions on how to make it better.
You assist with creative strategy and tactics to enable outstanding work.
You get your hands dirty to produce world-class ideas that are powered by the people.
You keep your cool under pressure, have the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, and deliver greatness on time, especially in new business pitches.
