Job Description


Job Description :
An art director’s job is just to make things pretty.
If reading that annoyed you (and you’re an art director), good.
Our team is looking for art directors who want to use their magical thinking to solve real business problems, not just make this photo pretty. We want art directors who believe that creativity can be used for good. We want art directors who are allergic to cliches and eager to disprove stereotypes like the headline above. We want art directors who keep pushing their own standards because to them, good enough is not enough.
First, let us introduce you to the Grab Regional Creative Team:

  • We’re responsible for building the Grab brand and maintaining its integrity across the region.

  • Our mission is to build brand love in everything we do and create memorable experiences for our users through purposeful creative work.

How do Creatives fit into Grab:

  • You will help humanise the technology for the inspiring, ingenious people of Southeast Asia that we serve.

  • You will create work that adds goodness to the business.

  • You will get the chance to build a brand that is enduring, endearing, and proudly made in Southeast Asia.

What a Regional Art Director’s day-to-day will look like:

  • After your morning caffeine fix, you’d want to dive right into your to-do list. It’s highly likely that you’ll have to juggle between multiple projects at the same time (as Grab is a fast-paced company), so self and time management is crucial.

  • You will be working closely with other creatives in your team to brainstorm ideas on how to create powerful communications for various types of campaigns.

  • From those concepts, you’ll bring them to life in beautiful visuals while staying true to the Grab brand identity (without being afraid to push boundaries).

  • You’ll also be working directly with colleagues from the marketing department to help shape the brand together as a team.

The must-haves :

  • 6-8 years experience in a similar capacity at a creative agency.

  • An impressive portfolio that showcases your strengths.

  • Self-motivated, independent, and collaborative.

  • Strong passion for communications/graphic design and visual storytelling.

  • Knowledge of design and technology trends.

  • Digital creative experience is a must.

Technical skills:

  • The usual suspects: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects.

  • We also use Figma and Miro, but don’t worry if you are not familiar. It’s easy to learn.

  • You should be able craft beautiful and meaningful illustrations, and turn them into simple animation or GIFs.

  • You should understand the principles of digital advertising (banners, EDMs, social media, etc).

  • We use Google Suite a lot, so this will become your best friend.

At Grab, you’ll get a chance to use creativity for good. So if that’s more appealing to you than ‘making things look pretty’, send us a link to your portfolio, and let’s chat.
