Midweight Flash Banner Designer


With at least 2 years of hands on experience working on design or development gained in a digital/creative agency environment, creating flash based websites, microsites or online advertising material, the Flash Designer works as part of the digital team, producing online advertising campaigns, flash microsites and digital outdoor advertising for a range of world famous brand clients.

Using media serving platforms including MediaMind, FlashTalking and DoubleClick and working either solely with a PM or as part of a team of designers and developers, depending on the project, the Flash Designer is responsible for creating online material to fulfil advertising media schedules to various specs for standard and rich media.

A creative and keen eye for detail is necessary to ensure all work is visually appealing, created to specification, fully tested and suitably prepared for presentation by the project manager to client.

The Flash Designer must have a "can-do" attitude, be willing to put forward ideas and have a keen eye for detail, making sure that all work produced is to a suitably high standard and within brand guidelines and specifications.
