WE’RE HIRING!

We’re looking to hire a Senior Graphic Designer & a Digital Designer – applicants outside of the UAE are also welcome. 2012 has been an interesting medley of projects for Zaman. From environment design: 1) an exhibition stand for a leading Emirati real estate group to showcase its diverse portfolio at CityScape Abu Dhabi and 2) another for a global oil & gas solutions provider present at ADIPEC 2012, to the conceptualization & launch of a premium UAE mens’ traditional apparel brand, documenting the 50-year timeline of one of Dubai’s most respected family business conglomerates and refreshing the brand  of a 20th century art furniture gallery and defining the blueprint of its foray into the Middle East…to say that we have been busy would be an understatement. The momentum hasn’t slowed down.

2013 offers a lineup of equally exciting projects, which also presents an opportunity to expand team Zaman. We currently looking to fill the following positions:

Senior Creative Designer / Art Director (min 5yrs experience & for an immediate start)
