We’re actually looking for two Art Directors/Designers – one of which needs strong US client work experience. To be a Hodes Art Director/Designer, you’ll need to ooze enthusiasm for beautiful, smart, boundary pushing work and have all the skills needed to create it. While you don’t need decades of experience, you’ll either have the beginnings of, or a well established, portfolio of creative work behind you, ideally including web, campaign, branding and social media ideas. On the pulse of new technologies too, everything you do will aim to be something that hasn’t been done before – even if that means thinking and executing at speed.

The variety of work we do at Hodes and Symphony Talent is huge and getting bigger, so our people are seriously multitalented. Think everything from brand architecture and multi-channel campaigns, to websites, games and captivating videos. To be a match for all that, you’ll obviously be an expert with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator, and have all the design, craft and conceptual skills needed to produce quality work across a range of platforms and channels, at speed. Even better, you might have already dabbled in Premier Pro or Final Cut and know your way around InVision and Trello. And because we’re a small busy team, proven experience in a similar role is essential.

As part of Hodes, you’ll take pride in your work, demonstrate a keen eye for detail and have a real willingness to learn and help out across all kinds of projects. Sometimes working with Copywriters and Video Editors, other times collaborating with UX Designers and Developers, you’ll help us make work we can all be proud of.

In short, if you’re looking to continue and elevate your creative career in a fast-paced, exciting industry and are prepared to roll your sleeves up in a collaborative, open and fun environment, we would love to meet you.

We mentioned two roles. Well, the first will be focused on our European and Global work – helping our clients that are HQ’d in Europe and to the East. So expect frequent and exciting opportunities to travel across these continents. The second will be expected to prioritise (or ‘prioritize’) US opportunities alongside European work. They’ll be working closely with our US creative and strategy teams, but from London. So frequent travel to the US for pitches and client presentations will be expected.

We’re also looking to hire Copywriters to pair up with our new Designers/Art Directors, so we welcome applications from established creative teams too.
