Digital Art Director

0 people like this description

Large Entertainment company is seeking a Digital Art Director, and a design leader, to join their team for a new website endeavor. The Art Director will serve as the artistic backbone of the design team and play a starring role in the creation of editorial features, cover stories, and rich, interactive content that reflect the company's digital identity and unique approach to storytelling.

Forming an intimate relationship with the company's print brands and the visual language of the new site, as well as figuring out how it applies to the digital space through their own unique tone and style is essential to success in this role. Building the experience from the ground up, the Art Director will have a strong voice in driving that evolution — through shared visual identity and shared process.
Ideal candidate is a flexible team player who can juggle a list of demanding projects with finesse and enthusiasm. You possess an open mind, and a respect for the best traditions of both user experience design and editorial design. While your body of work is natively digital, your visual style is heavily influenced by magazine layout. You’re comfortable working with writers and editors to help shape the reader's experience, as well as communicating and presenting creative/visual concepts, and the design rationale behind them.

Key Responsibilities
● Provide day­-to-­day art direction and design feedback to the content production team
● Art direction and hands-­on design for major feature stories
● Establish consistent visual standards across our sites
● Enhance and even maximize the audience’s understanding of published content
● Create unique value out of the combination of the written word and graphic language
● Collaborate with developers in the creation of new templates for editorial features
● Work with key stakeholders across the digital group to reduce QA time.

Desired Skills and Experience
● 7+ years of relevant professional experience in online media/publishing
● Deep understanding of typography, layout, form and color
● Advanced proficiency using design tools of the trade including Sketch, Photoshop, and
Illustrator
● Working knowledge of HTML, CSS and web standards
● Understanding of cross­-browser/platform compatibilities, and usability limitations for
the web and mobile
● Ability to enforce and build upon brand guidelines across our platforms
● Experience working in a ‘test and learn’ culture and using design as a tool of rapid
experimentation
● Ability to communicate and present creative/visual concepts, and the design rationale
behind them
● Expressive, articulate, and collaborative with a curious nature
● BFA or equivalent in Interactive Design, UX Design or equivalent preferred
