Art Director

Shanghai

Relay is a creative production agency that specializes in creating stunning pieces of video content, both for innovative
startup businesses and larger disruptive brands. We are currently looking for a bilingual Art Director to join our team
in Shanghai to support our Creative Director and ACD with any necessary work for both pitches and jobs in the production
pipeline. The Art Director will be responsible of coming up with creative proposals, and as such, we are looking for
a Creative with high standards and a refined aesthetic taste.

Key skills required for this position are as follows:

Eager team player and self-starter.

• Our ideal Art Director will be working closely with the rest of the Creative team and as such, he or she needs to be an
excellent team player. We work with people from multiple backgrounds and we are constantly learning from each other,
so this is a great opportunity for someone who wants to improve their skill set.

A Creative Executioner.

• As an Art Director, you will be dividing your time between New Business and confirmed projects in our pipeline. For New
Business, we’d like to find someone who is an expert at creating pitch decks, concept art, storyboards and other pitch
materials – our ideal candidate is a person who can get their hands to work and come up with beautiful, eye catching
materials while keeping the brief’s key points in mind. For projects in our pipeline, you will participate in client-facing
meetings, as well as internal briefings for each project, and asked to collaborate according to the project’s specific
needs. Knowledge and experience of Adobe software (mainly Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects) is essential for this
position. Experience with video editing software is not essential but desirable.

• We’re hoping our Art Director is aware of newest design and visual storytelling trends, and can constantly push the rest
of the team to try new strategies to create awesome content.

Communication Skills & Local Understanding.

• We’re looking to hire an individual who can confidently communicate in both Mandarin Chinese and English – in both written
and spoken forms. This person can not only communicate in both languages, but can confidently transmit ideas and concepts
back and forth as well. In addition to that, our ideal AD candidate has a very deep understanding of the local culture
and insights over creativity catered to them.
