• Concept and direct still and video shoots for various ads and campaigns.
• Infuse the team with strong creative ideas and get the people around you to be additive to the creative process and solicit team-wide feedback to yield world-class creative.
• Create and own design systems that allow the strategy and accounts teams to scale and deliver creative quickly and reliably and without compromising our clients’ look and feel.
• Overseeing all creative assets are ready to publishing, ensuring the final work is polished and up to Havas’ design and brand standards.
• Create, maintain, and make accessible to the digital team a clear, up-to-date and well-designed library of marketing assets that can be repurposed at any time. The library will include source files for social-first ads, edited photos, videos, illustrations, etc.
• Hire and manage best-in-class external design freelancers as well as mentor Junior Designers.

• Bachelor’s degree in Design (Graphic Design, Communication Design, or Advertising Design), Visual Communication, or equivalent; digital focus a plus
• 3 - 5 years of experience in an agency setting
• An online portfolio that demonstrates:
