Job Title - Senior Art Director

Are Media is the home of Australian magazines. Our extensive portfolio includes some of the country’s longest-running and most-loved brands, and boasts magazines, websites, videos, social, review sites, podcasts and experiences. This includes Australian Women’s Weekly, New Idea, Marie Claire, Gourmet Traveller, House & Garden, Wheels and many more.

About the role

Are Media’s Creative Studio sits within the Brands and Commercial Solutions team, working with some of the biggest magazine brands in the country including Gourmet Traveller, Marie Claire, Who, Inside Out, House & Garden, BELLE, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Country Style and Home Beautiful.

We are currently looking to build out our dedicated design team for one of our most important clients. In this expanded team, we are looking for a talented Senior Art Director who is as comfortable directing a shoot as they are on Photoshop. You will be able to clearly articulate a vision from mock to executed print design with endless ideas and innovative ways to approach food and interiors content. Your attention to detail will be second to none and your creative vision will be rich and diverse. Reporting into the Creative Lead you will be a team player, working alongside other art directors and designers to bring this content to life every month. Your design aesthetic, photography experience, interiors and trends knowledge will set you apart.

You are very comfortable working on one project for weeks at a time but you don’t mind jumping in to help on another urgent shoot or project if required. You’re positive and enthusiastic, and never precious about feedback. Bringing a vision to life is a challenge – once you’ve found your location, or designed a set build you can layer it with detail and style from the ground up, reflecting current trends and styles. You are comfortable working with large production budgets and most importantly you have a positive attitude, no matter what the day brings.
