On the Record CIC

Art Consultant/Art Director

Based: London
Level: Mid-Weight
Salary: London Living Wage
Contract: Freelance
Applications Close: 15 April 2019
Job Listing Added: 10 April 2019

On the Record is seeking a creative consultant with expertise in realising large scale permanent artworks to help define a print & lighting solution for a permanent public artwork.
We are experts in oral history, audio and digital work. We need a seasoned creative, with an eye on the arts rather than corporate/advertising to help us realise our vision.
We are seeking someone with extraordinary gifts in artworking & producing large scale works that sit between print and sculpture. Knowledge & skills in graphic design & lighting design will also be really helpful.
An understanding of film and screens & thinking through their display in challenging lighting conditions is also helpful.
We would like to display an extremely wide panoramic image in a space that is challenging. The wall space we've been allocated is not quite wide enough! The lighting is bright - daylight and overhead.


The image will also need some graphic treatments and modifications.
We already have a great film maker, architect, composer and sound designer, and many other gifted collaborators. What we need is a creative person with all-round ability. I don't need another 'ideas person', I need someone with practical skills who can help me realise a very specific vision.


I anticipate that this will require 4-5 days of your time.

How to Apply

If you think you can help, please send links to your portfolio and a very brief message. I'm especially looking for evidence of work which has been for brightly lit spaces and work which has been permanent - not a set or a 2 month installation. But I'm also just looking for someone whose aesthetic & ethos chimes with what we're doing, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you think you might be able to help. Get in touch as soon as you can.
