🎨 Creative Art Director- London UK

CREATIVE ART DIRECTOR- LONDON UK

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.
