Experience and skills
Though you understand the constraints of digital development and build, you’re a creative first and foremost - you’re all about ideas. As such, you’ll be as at home with paper and pencil as you are with mouse and screen - able to quickly and intelligently articulate your ideas with sketches and scribbles. You’re a big picture thinker. You have an inherent understanding of how digital creative connects to other media channels and forms a joined-up, compelling customer experience. You have experience of working as part of a wider team to deliver campaigns that work regardless of media, all of which is demonstrable through an excellent portfolio of past work gained over 5+ years working with leading or interesting brands.
You have in-depth knowledge, and experience, of designing responsive digital content that works across different devices (mobile, tablets, apps), as well as a good understanding of which platform works best for any given requirement. You have an eye for detail and layout and typography matter as much to you as they would a print designer. You understand information architecture and can demonstrate user interface design skills. Basic programming / development skills are an advantage in informing the work you produce and facilitating the transition from design to build. A true visual communicator, you’re excited by all things art and design and you find inspiration from a wide range of sources, utilising found images, mocked-up imagery and film, and mood boards to support your thinking and add weight to your ideas.
The other side of you is something of a digital obsessive and you have your finger on the pulse of the digital world - latest thinking and ideas, award winning creative, trends and advancements. You’re an active contributor in group brainstorms and comfortable expressing your ideas, either informally, or in more formal presentations, both to peers and senior stakeholders.
