What does the Global Creative do?

Global Creative conceives, designs and implements the company’s global brand in every media including digital and graphic design, photography, and video and in every channel including print, online, broadcast, outdoor, large-scale interior, retail merchandise and others. Our goal is to drive digital transformation and and implement design thinking across the organisation focusing on a human centred design.

Global Creative is comprised of a small, specialized team of award winning creatives whose backgrounds span the digital sphere, traditional communication and design, TV production and Social Media.

The Role

We are looking for a interactive art director to help us creating a beautiful and solid creative brand expression in the digital space.

Someone who truly understands visual, interaction design and UX,  who dares to push the envelope and come up with new amazing ideas.

As a central unit within EF our digital mission is to push our organisation into the digital era with power and impact. We work very much as an internal agency that helps the 15 or so different businesses that we consist of. Our customers are all digital natives looking for a lifetime experience and we need to be absolute best in class on all digital platforms and we truly have the ambition to become just that. Digitally we are essentially a mix between Duolingo, Airbnb and Lonely Planet so there is an amazing opportunity to do fun stuff. The roof is exceptionally high in this studio and with the right attitude and mindset you will be able to achieve amazing things.
