The Role

Midweight Editorial Designer & Social Content Wizard
If you are London-based, live on Instagram and Snapchat, daydream that you were Art Director of The Face in the 90s, wish you could breathe animation into every single still and/or get excited about hacking mainstream words and pictures into social gold dust… then you’re exactly who we are looking for.

Come join the newest team at R/GA combining world-class editorial and publishing experience with the best that ‘digital innovation agency of the year’ can offer.

R/GA London is looking for a talented and ambitious hybrid designer to join our publishing team, primarily working on the Siemens account but also now to support on a growing portfolio of new brands and opportunities.

- 3-5 years of experience
- One eye on the past - Magazine experience (traditional page layout design) is preferable
- Belong to the future - Digital content asset design experience – creating social variations of editorial assets
- Motion design experience / ability to create simple animations preferable
- Experience working with and commissioning illustrators, photographers, animators, GIF artists and other specialist creatives
- Portfolio that is reminiscent of the best things that the digital mobile and social worlds have to offer

Working in a collaborative and creative environment, you will report to the Design Director and Creative Director to create a perpetual stream of engaging article and social content to tell stories – through video, photography, illustration and animation.

Siemens Program
Siemens Employer Brand Content Engine - Social led conversation ecosystem

To be visible in a social world saturated with branded content, Siemens needs to act differently. Not just from its competition, but from the often over-traditional and corporate way they have behaved. To compete for market perception and talent with the likes of Google and Apple, they need a new, fresher face & voice.

A considered program to tell the rich and varied stories of Siemens talent and their remarkable work in an original way globally, and to change perception and drive consideration of Siemens as the 'employer of choice' in the new post digital world (through Medium, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn feeds)
