Senior Digital Designer – Create Brands, Drive Best Practice | $110-120k + Super

Melbourne

The crazy world of design is continually growing! With so many disciplines mixing, marinating and manoeuvring one another, it can feel like a bit of a blur at times. As a Digital Designer, am I expected to do UX? Should I get involved in wireframing? Should I be able to code? – It’s tough to navigate for sure…

But fear no more, friend! – we’re in your corner and this role is so jam-packed with creative goodness you’re gonna’ be buzzing like a beehive when we’re through…

So, who is this jam filled, honey-loving crew?

Well, these guys are our fave brand design and engagement agency. Despite being 25 years old, this crew is constantly innovating and pushing themselves to be the best in the game – and this role has been created from that very ethos.

Their capability as an agency over the last 2 years has skyrocketed, allowing them to now offer end to end creative services from business design and brand strategy to experience design and brand activation. They have 30+ creatives all housed under one roof — with in-house motion design, brand design, content, growth marketing and videography all served up from the same, super creative team.

They’re more than just an agency. They build businesses.

What’s the challenge here?

Well put simply – they need a digital design champion!

Although they come from a heavy creative and brand focussed background, they have a genuine intention and a leadership team that is driving them toward a new vision centred around building 100% digital businesses through innovation and startup incubation. They have everything they need to execute – all that’s left – is YOU!

That all sounds fancy, but in reality what does it look like? – let me paint the picture…

You’ll be the digital design go to in the squad and will be responsible for:

  • Developing original, forward-thinking brand concepts with a pure digital focus – not just logos and assets, but complete brands!
  • Orchestrating what best practice digital looks like in the team. Defining digital standards for things like typography, web standards, accessibility, responsivity, usability et al
  • Translating brand strategy into creative, through art direction across digital deliverables
  • Working with in-house UX’ers and Digital Designers to deeper empathise with the customer experience, ultimately working towards better experiences for users.
  • Creating digital brands and UI kits that challenge the status-quo
  • Identifying ways to continually improve the squad’s output, performance and direction

What do you need in your toolkit for this role?

Our dreamy persona would be someone who can come in and really strengthen the practice end to end. A really important component of this role is the creative and conceptual brand-building element. We’re looking for someone who can go beyond just logos and digital assets – and really dig deep into completely re-imagining brands from the ground up with a progressive, clean and modern style.

On top of that, you’re going to need to be able to:

  • Drive digital best practice
  • Adopt both a teacher & student mindset
  • Understand the importance of UX and collaborate with UXers to wireframe & prototype
  • Constantly ask WHY?
  • Know how to prioritise your own workload to continually crush it
  • Use Sketch as if you created it – that means really, really well…

In return, what’s in it for you?

  • An awesome creative team with all facilities in-house completely up for your use
  • A role that you can grow in and build a bigger team around you
  • Autonomy to run projects end-to-end
  • A leadership team that is 100% driving change & not-political
  • An agency that DOES NOT suffer from that feast and famine feel of projects. They have plenty of work
  • A culture that values creativity and doesn’t suffocate it. You won’t be over worked here!
  • Variety of projects ranging from social impact/good, to lifestyle, professional services and startups.

As you can probably tell, we know these guys really well. So, even though this is a long JD, there’s even more to tell you. So, if ANYTHING in this piques your interest, get in touch and fire your questions at me. Chat soon, friend!
