Hello. We’re Pink Squid, a fast-growing creative agency building people-powered brands. Our work is award-winning. Our clients are global, big-name brands. And our Central London studio (aka home, for now) is one super-talented creative short. That’s – we hope – where you come in.
Able to hone a message on a print ad, then give it legs across digital executions? Dedicated to giving that message a unique look and feel? And ready to work hard to help us produce industry-rocking work as it goes from concept to delivery? Well…you’re in the right place. Our creative studio is growing and we’re on the hunt to find a talented Art Director to join us in our new Squid Tank.
We’d like you to have a minimum of two years’ experience in an agency environment and a strong portfolio, which shows not just your conceptual genius, but the hidden (or extremely visible) problem-solver within you too.
You’re comfortable working in a team and love a challenge. You know what makes a creative idea award-winning. This is not a junior role, so anything extra you can bring to the table (new skills? a platform we’ve never heard about? a niche hobby?) is a bonus.
Does that sound like something you’d enjoy? Good. Get in touch with your CV and portfolio. Please note that applications without portfolios will not be considered.
A hands on creative digital thinker and design leader.
We’re looking for a web champion, a digital design conductor, an all rounder – to build and lead a web team from scratch.
Have you thrived in an agency environment, but you’re now ready to build and run your own department? Nurturing a small team, you’ll be strategically guiding our clients – redeveloping websites from scratch, from behaviour mapping to go-live and everything else in between.
At Pink Squid we specialise in Employer Branding – this means we use all our creative, analytical and technical tools to conceptualise, advertise, engage and communicate to very niche audiences. Your role as Head is to join the digital design dots from the wider Pink Squid teams, working with Project Managers, Brand Strategists, Creative Copywriters, Art Directors and Motion Designers – co-creation is an essential part of our problem solving.
If big global brands don’t intimidate you, then we have plenty for you to play with – from major social media platforms to global IT, transportation, online gaming and Fintech to name a few. Working flexibly and at our London HQ, you’ll also have a chance to influence our US office and clients, so be ready to roll up your sleeves.
