Description

The company
Gravity Road is a creative company that believes in time well spent. We create things that people want to spend time with – ideas that audiences will love, share and be entertained by. We do this by connecting brands with pop culture and technology in ways that are smart, progressive and playful. We want to entertain and engage.
We’re a young company, always trying to keep learning and adapting so we work smarter. We recently joined the world’s first BrandTech group, You & Mr Jones. This puts us in a unique position of being able to supercharge our creativity by working with genuinely innovative tech partners across the globe. It is like having the best tech toolkit in town.
Our diverse teams come from a range of backgrounds including journalism, designers and brand side. Diversity in all guises is a commercial imperative for us. We also value the things that are important to you outside of work and are open to all flexible working applications. For us the most important thing is to have the best people, doing their best work.

The role
As the Senior Designer at Gravity Road you will report directly to our Executive Creative Director, working closely to ensure the creative excellence of all our design output. You will be adept at working on a variety of projects, from social content through to print adverts, delivering award-winning work for some of the biggest brands globally.
You will work alongside other creatives, guiding the art direction of a range of ideas. You will be confident in your skill and artistic vision, a team player that loves collaboration and comfortable voicing your opinion to senior stakeholders. We aim for 9s and 10s and you’ll be someone that also wants to push creativity forward and do amazing work.
You will be responsible for leading a small team of designers and will be passionate and enthusiastic about developing and growing their abilities as well as your own. We firmly believe that creative excellence and personal development go hand-in-hand so you will also be eager to learn and develop. We are looking for an ambitious person that wants to grow and progress into our next Design Director.

What you need
  • Minimum 5 years agency experience or similar experience working in a fast-paced digital environment
  • A background in creating award-winning art direction and brand campaigns
  • An expert at the Adobe Creative Suite – InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop (Motion graphics and animation skills are a bonus)
  • Cross-channel experience – adept at designing and understanding the different requirements for Social, Digital, OOH, Press, Email and Website
  • Experience managing a team is not essential - this is something we can help support – but the desire to grow a team and develop your leadership skills is a must
  • A collaborative team player – excited to work with and learn from other amazing people
  • Curiosity to ask questions, research things you don't know about and use this to inspire those around you.
  • A positive attitude – a can-do frame of mind no matter the challenge.
  • Eagerness to learn - a hardworking work ethic as you learn lots of new skills
  • Attention to detail - rigour around your work, ensuring it's as accurate as possible.
