Designer / Art Director
Our startup is on the hunt for a new Art Director!
At UseClark, we’re out to change the way people read and process information. We have trainers that coach professionals and students to read efficiently, stay focused, and remember more. We’re also developing reading software that is designed to make the reading digital process easier and more comfortable.
Our team is comprised of an office in Amsterdam and remote workers around the world. The Amsterdam team is small, but we’ve got big plans: we signed an international franchising deal this year, and already have partners spanning four continents!
You’ll be working as Art Director starting in early 2016. You'll start off working 3 to 4 days a week. Our team is small and strappy, so you'll be responsible for a variety of things. Regular tasks might include:
User interface and user interaction design
Designing and creation of email campaigns
Creating printed materials for training courses
User testing and research
General marketing content design
- Content creation and management of social media channels
Experience is ideal, but talent, intelligence, and a desire to learn is equally as good. Ideally you’re quite the reader as well–the company revolves around reading, after all!
At the very least, you must be able to legally work within the EU, and we have to be able to deal with you for more than five minutes at a time without going insane.
Our ideal applicant has some of the following:
- Fluency in English, both spoken and written. Dutch skills are preferred but not mandatory.
- Mad InDesign/Illustrator/Photoshop skills
- Experience with UI and/or UX design
- Experience with business-oriented print design
- A flair for writing
- Experience with MailChimp/email campaign services
- User testing experience
- Knowledge of current design patterns and practices
- A keen eye
- A fresh young mind and 15+ years of experience in the field
(... just kidding about that last one)
