Job overview

At Evans Hunt, our mission is to create powerful, positive experiences that combine strategy, creative and technology.


Do you live for the concept? For surprisingly pleasant user experiences? Are you someone who knows their Sketch from their Figma and the perfect tool for the job every single time? Are you the kind of unstoppable creative who’s been drawing, creating and communicating visual messages their whole life? We’re looking for just such a Digital Art Director, and they might just be you.



Who we’re looking for

Your professional or academic experience has given you the ability to create meaningful work with a human-centred lens. You believe in a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to projects and that diverse perspectives lead to stronger work. 

 

If the person below sounds like you, you should definitely apply. 


You have awesome digital and UX design skills. You love UX and the ways design can facilitate engagement. This passion shows through your strong and engaging work. When you walk clients through prototypes, you get them just as excited about the concepts as you are.


You can put on speed without sacrificing quality. It’s a busy business, but you know how to both keep up and excel. You believe there’s always time to put care into what you’re creating, no matter the deadline.


You've got a stunning and varied portfolio. You’re proud of the work you’ve done, eager to share and always pushing to improve.


You thrive on constructive criticism. You can self-edit and consider criticism the key to future success. You know both when to hold your ground and when to adapt your approach based on feedback.


You’re a born leader. You set your teams up for success, providing them with clear goals, support and guidance when needed.


You understand the variety of services we offer. You’re flexible and eager to tackle any challenge whether it concerns branding, marketing campaigns, user experience or interface design.


A day in the life

 

Working at an agency, you'll have the opportunity to work with various clients across a diverse range of industries. One day you might collaborate with your team to support a brewery’s next flawless product rollout. Another day you might walk a global travel and experience brand through a prototype, showing them just how confident you are in the bold new direction. No two days are the same.


That said, there are a few activities that will likely take up most of your time. These include:

 

  • Performing hands-on work on small to medium-sized projects
  • Developing and executing digital concepts, either on your own or with a supporting team
  • Preparing, presenting and supporting presentations with creative directors
  • Mentoring designers, ensuring they’re aligned to our processes and expectations
  • Performing design QA across all project stages

 


What's in it for you?


Evans Hunt is a full-service digital agency focused on the integration of strategy, creative and technology. Our experienced team of 90+ employees delivers complete marketing solutions for top local, national and international organizations. We’re a fun place that does good work. Here’s what we’re offering:


  • Salary range: TBD (subject to experience)
  • Culture & lifestyle: We’re an agency and take pride in our work, but family and wellbeing need nurturing too. You’ll have flexible hours and lots of opportunities to celebrate with your teammates.

What we’ll ask
