Art Director / Creative Manager – Deeside – £40-45k pro rata
Design agency, based near Chester, is looking for an Art Director / Creative Manager to join their team for a four-month contract (starting mid-August).
The project is a four-month project (starting mid-August and ending mid-December) and is working on a multi-brand catalogue (predominantly apparel). It will be your responsibility to art direct each section, ensuring that the pages are in-line with each brand’s look and feel. You will oversee the creative team, who are designing and finishing the catalogue, ensuring that concepts are adhered to, the work is of a high quality and the deadlines for each section are met. You will liaise directly with the client on a daily basis, to present your vision for each brand within the catalogue and ensure sign-off at each stage of the creative process.
You will be an experienced art director and creative manager, able to come up with brand-driven design concepts and oversee the team through execution. You will be a hands-on designer, so Adobe CS skills are crucial. You will have experience of managing a small team of designers and artworkers, able to ensure deadlines are adhered to. Ideally, you will have retail catalogue experience or come from a retail/apparel background.
This is a great opportunity to work on an exciting and large-scale project, across a variety of brands, supported by a very talented team.
