Director’s Assistant/Treatment Designer at Somesuch

We at Somesuch (London) are looking for a full time in-house Director’s Assistant to join our creative team.
You’ll be working collaboratively with our varied roster of directors with a focus on designing beautifully considered treatments that help to realise their vision.

An average day would consist of reading a script, contacting the director and taking a brief for the treatment. From there you will either begin image/video research or work with a creative researcher on obtaining visual reference for the project. You will then create a layout from the selected research and director’s writing, responding to and working with the producer and director’s feedback throughout. Although this role will include visual research, we are looking for a candidate who will be primarily dedicated to layout and design.

Essential skills:
- An exceptional eye for detail and the ability to adapt to differing visual styles.
- An organised and efficient worker with the skill to respond quickly under the pressure of deadlines.
- A well natured individual who is comfortable communicating with the team in the office, as well as communicating via email, phone or video call with directors based around the world.
- A keen interest in film, art, technology, photography and music, with an ability to find great visual references at request.
- An interest and knowledge of graphic design and typography is beneficial. This includes any experience of working with printers to see a design through to its physical production.
- A comprehensive knowledge of the written word - enough to be able to confidently proof read documents.
- An eye for new and forthcoming design and layout technologies.

Technical requirements:
- Proficiency in the use of key Mac-based Adobe software – specifically InDesign and Photoshop – having used these for graphic design or visual layout.
- Experience with editing software such as Premiere and Final Cut with the ability to cut mood films from visual research.
- Experience with web-based design is useful but not essential.
