Overview:

We're looking for a Senior Creative Designer who can lead and execute a project from concept to completion. An expert at originating ideas, you draw on your influences to create clear, interesting and though-provoking work for our client.

We're looking for someone who can capture a big idea and flesh out its small details. You'll be just as comfortable ideating with a team as you are getting into the nitty-gritty of art direction. You're articulate, can sell-in your work and understand the idea behind the imagery. You're able to crystallise the thinking of strategists and writers, and get in the trenches with videographers and artworkers.

You leave your signature on your work, and can find a way to do so within brand guidelines. You might be interested in technology, art, film, music and more, and you bring these interests with you to the office. You're self­ motivated, always honing and pushing your own skills. You are autonomous, can own the presentation deck, and come up with the goods time and time again.

You're happy to be part of a team that values bravery, openness, diversity and originality. You're just as happy working remotely with our teams in London and Chicago, as you are with your close collaborators in London. You're interested in mentoring other members of the team and can encourage them to develop their skill sets. You will work closely with the Associate Creative Director to push the boundaries, always aiming to make the next project something you can be proud of.

  • We favour experimentation and small moves over planning for perfection
  • Our strength is in our collective expertise

We offer a flexible working environment and this means that you operate in a self-organising way with the team and us, the trust is in you. We work both remotely and in the physical office. We are only tax-registered in Illinois, New Jersey, California, Florida, Colorado and Indiana. If you are not located in these states we may not be able to consider your application.

Here at Omobono, we’re working hard to build an environment that’s close-knit and supportive – a place where the person you are matters as much as the job you do. Last year, our D&I team led a company-wide initiative to include personal pronouns on email signatures. This year, we have continued to focus on mental health at work, diversity in the hiring process and how best to tackle unconscious bias at large.  We are also incredibly proud to work with an external workplace support group to really champion employee wellbeing: https://www.omobono.com/2020/08/09/world-mental-health-day-our-work-with-sanctus-2/ 

We wish you every success in your application! If you would like to informally talk to someone about the role, please do not hesitate to reach out to Sarah, Omobono’s People Manager at people@omobono.com
