JOB SPOTLIGHT: Art Director

The social media landscape continues to evolve and the art of storytelling is more visual than ever.  We’re looking for an experienced digital designer with a vast skill set and a thirst for big ideas.

Art Director

This is an all-encompassing role to head up our small but growing creative department working to create digital masterpieces for our diverse range of clients.

You’d be just as comfortable jamming out on big campaign ideas and delegating priority tasks as you would be getting your hands dirty across the full range of Adobe design tools.

You’ll work collaboratively with multiple roles across the agency from account managers to content and community managers, business development and publishing teams to bring ideas to life, all the while looking to push boundaries and tell our clients stories in new and exciting ways.

It’s time to jump in the driver’s seat, you’ll be tasked with executing jobs with the utmost creativity and quality, plus leading your team through prioritising jobs, managing communication, exploring systems and fine-tuning processes with an eye for efficiency.

What we want. 

Firstly, this is not an entry-level role. If that’s what you’re after, drop us a line and we might have something else for you.

However, years of experience are not a prerequisite. Instead, it’s all about your creative and design capability and demonstrable experience creating content for social media channels and digital platforms. The types of project size you’ve worked on, your knowledge of emerging trends and the fundamentals of digital design are key. A particular strength in video production is strongly desirable.

Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Premiere Pro should be part of your DNA and you ideally know the ins and outs of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn (not just how to post photos of your cat).

Finally, exceptional time management skills are essential. You’ll be juggling multiple jobs, emails, conversations, tasks, projects and people simultaneously, and need to know how to prioritise effectively.

So who are we?

Jaden Social is the go-to digital agency for range of Australia’s biggest music and entertainment brands as well as having a full scale dev team helping bring app and web startups to life every day. We are a team with a genuine passion for the clients we work with and we love to tell their stories.

We’re a small team. 25 talented individuals hang out across two 3-level street-entry suites in sunny Crows Nest, just north of the bridge. Unlike the CBD, we actually see sunshine and leafy-green trees out our floor-to-ceiling windows, which we make the most of every Friday afternoon with a drink on the balcony.

During the week, we jam, we work hard and we get sh*t done delivering kickass campaigns for our clients.

And who are these “clients”?

Jaden Social was born 5 years ago out of building Twitter audiences for clients in the music and entertainment industry, snowballing into full-scale digital campaigns across multiple platforms utilising both paid and unpaid media.

Today, our clients range from recording artists from major labels Universal Music, Sony Music and Liberation Music to music festivals, national tours and musical instruments. We also work across brands in food and beverage, tech start-ups, home & lifestyle and more.

Why Jaden Social?

We get it, you might have to cross the bridge but taking in those harbour views is a stunning way to start the day and get inspired. We’ve got a couple of cool perks up our sleeve to woo our next design wonder – Free Coffee Mondays, 4pm finish every Friday, Birthday long weekends and more plus of course a rather attractive salary package but that’s only going to mean so much (cept the coffee, that means  A LOT, esp on a Monday).

At Jaden Social, we’re at the forefront of social and digital advertising working with both grassroots startups and legendary artists. We’re out to make an impact for all our clients and we have amazing relationships with them all.

You’ll be joining a vibrant team who live for social media, are passionate about their work and have a great sense of humour. A team with a love of music, a good pun and a great burger.

What next?

If this role sounds like it was written for you, then get in touch today. We may not be actively hiring, but we’re always on the lookout for new talent.
