Mid-weight Art Director / Designer

A bit about who we’re after

Are you a super-talented, finger-on-the-pulse, creative-thinking Art Director/Designer? Then you could be exactly the kind of Art Director/Designer Waste London is looking for. We need someone who can spin more than one plate at a time: who’s able to come up with killer digital ideas and deliver beautifully crafted creative work. You’ll be doing this primarily for British Gas and periodically for the Centrica brand’s other companies: Hive, Dyno and Local Heroes.

You’ll need to have a design background and experience with content creation is a must – the majority of the work you’ll be involved in will be content related (social and blog). You’ll be thoughtful, with a great knowledge of what is achievable on existing and emerging digital formats and platforms.

You’ll be required to concept and oversee multiple projects and to be hands-on in some of the key ones.


A bit about us

Waste is an 11-year-old creative agency filled with digital natives and analog enthusiasts who combine to make beautiful bits and bytes. Like every 11-year-old, we’re a little cheeky, brimming with a certain kind of twisted genius, and we care deeply about the things we love. In the main, that’s smart, expertly crafted digital content created at the speed of social.

We have offices in London and Los Angeles, and good friends in Finland, San Francisco, South Africa, Houston, Kosovo and New Zealand because we’re international like that.

With a passion for the unconventional and a no-fuss attitude, we take pride in delivering amazing results for amazing clients like British Gas, Supercell, Sega, Camelot, Warner Bros. and Turner Broadcasting. But don’t take our word for it, check out our work and accolades.


Key Requirements:

  • Art Direction - You’re definitely up to date with the latest design trends, both on and off the web. You can execute any style at the drop of a hat. You have a deep understanding of everything digital plus the ability to learn fast – because we are primarily digital! You understand 3D and you’re confident art directing film and photo shoots.
  • Creativity -  You’re bold and original. You’re constantly asking questions and pushing digital boundaries. Innovative creative solutions come naturally to you and you can articulate your ideas with the rest of the creative team.  You never shy away from a storyboard and you can turn out a handy scamp when necessary.
  • Design - You need to be a great designer, it’s as simple as that. Wanting to use type, grids, pixels, photography, and motion graphics better should be what gets you up in the morning, and your portfolio should show off your excellence in these areas.
  • Experience - 3+ years agency experience.


You’ll be responsible for the following:

  • Art direction for British Gas content responses alongside Senior Creative.
  • Art direction for British Gas blog articles.
  • Design for more complex BG blog article executions.
  • Storyboarding for all BG content animations (social & blog).
  • Pre-production & oversight for content film / photo shoots.
  • Oversight and QA for all BG content from an art direction & design perspective.
  • Oversight on creative ideas as they move through production process.
