Baz-Art is Hiring!
Baz-Art is a young, growing and dynamic company serving both Commercial and NGO clients, in creating visual messages that inspire audiences. Based in Cape Town, and operating in the national and international arena as the largest public and street art platform in Africa, this emerging company builds bridges between communities, neighbourhood groups, businesses and educational systems through creating street art in many forms.
With the growth of the organisation from its small roots in Salt River in Cape Town, it now operates in all major cities in South Africa, is now expanding its footprint to other African cities and has its eye on Europe and the Americas. With this growth, Baz-Art now needs to engage someone with your talents and experience in Graphic Design and Illustration to assist them in executing and successfully completing assignments by creating conceptual sketches/renderings for potential large scale artworks. For this role, we are looking for a creative who can ensure that our visual messages meet the Baz-Art standard of creativity while working on tight deadlines and creating digital artworks to specifications clients needs.
The ideal candidate is passionate about street art and outdoor marketing, genuinely interested in growing with us, supports our agenda and principles and is keen to truly connect with our company and team. The person is friendly, persuasive, and able to inspire, stimulate and motivate others. We’re looking for someone who is dynamic, a great communicator, a natural team player and a diplomatic communicator.
To produce detailed sketches and to be adaptable to any artistic style is a major focus of the job, and those details need to be handled quickly, correctly and efficiently. You will be working closely with the Baz-Art team throughout the process, hence being able to work with others is an important aspect of the role.
The suitable candidate should be able to follow up carefully, closely and cheerfully with the team and possibly clients if needed, as you would be expected to conceptualize ideas into sketches for murals in any artistic style. Necessary corrections must be made in a constructive and supportive manner. As time is usually a factor, the work must be done on time, as well as correctly. In general, you will need to follow guidelines, structure, and established policies, while working with and for others and letting your creativity shine.
