If you are going to create something that is truly a breakthrough you are going to have to rely on your intuition and your judgement.Wally Olins.
Not everyone appreciates Wally, but we do.
We are looking for a Senior Designer (Identity, Digital and Print, with a minimum 7 years experience) to join our international award winning brand design team in Bahrain. We are looking for a ballsy, big thinking graphic design hero who can kick the rear end out of any design brief.
Senior Designer Role Outline:
Your role, from dawn till dusk, is to wow the Executive Creative Director with design solutions so brilliantly considered they make the Book of the Dead look like an infant’s doodle. Rarely away from your desk, your life is design and design is your life. You eat creative briefs for breakfast and produce and deliver design presentations that regularly achieve rounds of applause from teary-eyed marketing directors. Bless.
Clients worship you and so does you team. Yes you know CS6 (7, 8… who doesn’t?) but you know it with a degree of fluency which makes a touch typist appear slow and dithering. Apart from a portfolio of solid gold creative work across brand, graphics and digital design, you can deliver brand solutions from concept to creative standards documentation and typographic designs that are slicker than leather soled shoes on black ice.
Senior Designer Profile:
You are a self-motivated, strategic design thinker who loves a challenge and can keep you head while other lesser mortals are barfing on the floor. A confident presenter you will be comfortable discussing your work in team meetings and with clients – no matter how humorous their ‘suggestions’ might be.
As a Senior Designer you will also be the defacto team leader; you are keen to set the bench mark for others to work towards but take strange pleasure in keeping it just out of reach (mwoo hahahaaa!). While other design demi-gods might let it go to their heads, you manage to ‘keep it real’ and find a strange fascination with mentoring lesser design mortals towards producing work which leaves audiences spell bound and drooling from the corner of their upturned mouths.
You are well presented (not preppy and not wearing denim so distressed it is positively suicidal), considered, methodological and have an eye for the unusual. A good sense of humour and the willingness to work with a team of looneys is a prerequisite. Though not essential, the perfect candidate will be keen on the written word with total fluency in English (any Arabic is a bonus, habbibi).
All applicants must have international (US, Europe or East Asia) agency experience. Named agency experience will help your application but is not as essential as a bag full of international awards and a chuffing great portfolio.
