Description

Directeur trice artistique

Recherchez-vous constamment la perfection sur le plan esthétique ? Par exemple, est-ce que les livres de votre bibliothèque sont rangés par couleur ? Êtes-vous d’avis qu’un message écrit avec une police de caractères inadéquate peut choquer ? Si vous avez répondu oui à ces questions, vous avez ce qu’il faut pour travailler comme directeur ou directrice artistique chez Geometry.

  • Une habileté à travailler avec toutes les équipes de l’agence, et non seulement avec l’équipe de la création, à comprendre et conceptualiser afin de créer de campagnes percutantes pour nos clients
  • Un talent marqué pour le design de communications visuelles, logos, emballages et scénarimages
  • Une grande curiosité pour la culture populaire et tout ce qui relève du numérique
  • Une capacité de participer activement aux séances de remue-méninges et une volonté de perfectionnement à l’égard de ses aptitudes en présentation de solutions créatives
  • Une compréhension quant à la nécessité de parfois devoir conserver la ponctuation (un rédacteur nous a demandé d’ajouter ce point)

 Si vous carburez à l’idée de perfectionner votre art dans un environnement exceptionnellement stimulant, qui peut parfois être stressant, assemblez vos meilleures réalisations et montrez-nous ce que vous savez faire. Idéalement, vous devriez avoir quatre ans ou plus d’expérience en publicité, marketing ou dans un secteur connexe.
