For our office in Zagreb/Split, we are searching for a Lead for our design team which currently has motion designers and will soon have graphic designers as well. !
Our designers often work in multidisciplinary ways on projects that require a mix of graphic design, 2D / 3D motion, animation and/or editing. We are looking for problem solvers and storytellers who can help turn creative ideas into realities.
The Lead Motion Designer will also play an integral part in the international Design team and be the main point of contact between the global DEPT® design teams and the local designers, in order to create a positive and efficient working environment. You will work closely with our London team who will brief you on projects. You will work closely with the UK Design Director to manage the workload and creative output of the local team.
Yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect DEPT®-fit. Someone who is eager to learn and strives toward a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to cheer with us to a successful week as well! Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective.
