Looking to find an inspired & immensely talented Art Director for Entertainment Client. This will be a key role on the team. The successful candidate will report to the Creative Director and lead a team of 4-6 designers. It will require both a conceptual and technical understanding of what is possible and how to push these boundaries. Someone who is looking for a chance to step up and get to work on the best stuff in their career. A team player who lives and breathes new media and the interactive space – Someone whose work has been seen in some of the top design showcase sites. (TheBestDesigns, Dribbble, Creattica, CSSMania, etc…)

About the Position
This is a “Product Design” role. Thus the ability to work outside of Photoshop is both critical and mandatory. (HTML / CSS based design prototypes) Our properties must look stellar – this is a given. However, the true measure of success will be in building functional design systems that allow for simple and clean access to our content, features and functionality for both the desktop and mobile interactive. You must be a problem solver who is able to use visual communication to solve complex functional issues as well as to support the editorial mission. You will partner with various product, editorial and engineering leads to execute both large-scale projects as well as day-to-day production.
You are an avid user of web tools, applications and shared content online. You have an understanding and interest in emerging web technologies, concepts, and designs and can both mentor and foster this environment in a team. You pay attention to what others are doing with current design, and THRIVE on adding “best of” skills and techniques to your bag of tricks. The perfect candidate will have a solid understanding of user experience, be preoccupied with usability and have a great eye for the small details that make design stand out from the crowd.
The Requirements
A passion for innovation and an attitude that good enough is not good enough.
Strong desire to lead, learn, mentor and be a part of a passionate group – whose desire is to do the best work of their career.
Portfolio of work that indicates a strong understanding of current interactive design trends – AND knocks our socks off!
Responsible for managing a group of 4 – 6 Senior Designers, Designers, and/or Junior Designers on multiple projects
Excellent communication and organizational skills. Ability to present and support creative concepts in a professional and engaging manner

Understand the role of design in creating usable and effective web / digital interfaces
Able to conceptualize and design innovative user interfaces for consumer- facing websites and web-based applications.
Advanced knowledge of the full Adobe web Creative Web Suite.
Experience with valid HTML & CSS – We run a code based design shop.
Current and review-ready portfolio
Most important – you have to have an online portfolio.
