    Design Director at MediaMonks Hilversum

    MediaMonks is hiring an English speaking, digital tastemaker to oversee the creation of top-notch designs at our Hilversum office.

    In this role you will:
    • Be part of an international team that is crafting amazing work for the world’s biggest consumer brands.
    • Translate brand values, creative concepts, UX documentation and user-stories into functional design solutions.
    • Go above and beyond the original brief to push what’s possible on both a creative and technical level.
    • Employ your problem-solving skills and full stack of design solutions to lead your team and projects from start to finish to ensure the highest quality of the delivery.
    • Be presenting your work to the client in person and through video calls, pitching new projects and proposals for production.
    • Improve work on both an aesthetic and functional level, with an articulate understanding of design fundamentals such as typography, interaction design and usability.
    • Understand how designers work and think, but also have a feel for the politics of advertising and pitfalls of production.
    • Your social skills are just as vital. Ultimately, it’s a combination of kudos and critique that makes people go the extra mile.
    Requirements:
    • You have around 7+ years of experience, with 2+ years in a lead capacity, across the field of digital and web design.
    • Having earned your stripes in the field, you’re ready to take on this role with mentor-like responsibilities, helping younger designers get better at their job through constructive feedback
    • In addition to visual prowess, you have strong social and professional skills and feel confident in tackling high-end projects in tag team with our client.
    • You boast a beautiful portfolio of top-of-class apps and experiences, spanning the entire spectrum of UX, UI, marketing and interaction design.
    • You have experience directing all stages of the design process, from conceptualizing styles to finalizing asset deliveries
    • You have an articulate understanding of grid systems, white space, aspect ratios, typography and color theory, tying all of these elements together with obsessive attention to detail.
    • Your Photoshop and Sketch skills are so slick, they look photoshopped; and you also know how to organize your files, layers and folders.
    • Beyond aesthetic excellence, your portfolio demonstrates presentation, research, troubleshooting and problem-solving skills.
    • Based on your experience and expertise, you can judge on the quality of the user experience, and explain what needs to be achieved to make it better.
    • You know how to sell designs to colleagues and clients alike, and have experience running workshops and presentations.
    • Interactive prototyping tools are a must, be it Marvel, InVision, Framer or Figma. You are flexible and agile and willing to put in the hours, time and dedication to make each project you work on a success.
