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.
