Where: Xuhui District, Shanghai, China.
Salary: Based on experience
At least 5 years experience in the creative communication industry.
As Art Director, you will handle a very broad base of work, from integrated strategy and concept development, to branding, packaging, layout and creative design. Excellent Adobe CS design skills are a must, as is the ability to speak both English and Chinese (written Chinese and English to a high level would be a distinct advantage).
You will feel just as comfortable developing great conceptual narrative as you are at creating beautiful and exciting visuals. As a natural leader, you inspire your team members, giving effective creative direction across a range of projects. You can present your work and ideas both internally and externally and are able to bring concepts to life.
A great, and broad-based, visual sense is also essential: from key visuals and photography to fonts. Confidence and experience with short-form copywriting and an aptitude in communicating conceptual development, as verbal presentation and written proposal development, is highly appreciated; as is confidence in your ideas and approach - alongside an ability to work with a team and incorporate others' ideas.
An international outlook and aesthetic is important; having spent time living and working outside of Mainland China would be a real advantage. Above all else - enthusiasm for your work, a love of what you do, and a real desire to grow within a fast growing company structure.
