What you’ll do as a Digital Design Art Director at Emakina

You will be involved in your projects from start to finish. Pitching, the art direction in the beginning, all the way to the execution of design details in the end. Because of your work, a high standard of visual execution is ensured. You mentor and guide more junior members of the visual team in balancing scope of the work and you are able to mitigate frustrations that are inherent to the design process.

With our clients, keeping the budgets and implications on different platforms in mind, you explore new digital avenues and are not limited to the status quo. You inspire others by taking risks.

You are experienced and confident in working hands on with a talented team to ensure creative execution. You work closely and mostly within the scrum team to align the artwork with the technology required for each project, making sure that the design solutions are executable and bringing strategic concepts to life on web and mobile with our clients.
