Art Director - Intermediate

  • Auckland

Would you like to work with one of the best advertising agencies in New Zealand, an agency that consistently is awarded with accolades for their creativity and thinking?

This is an intermediate Art Director role, you will have an excellent book of work, have the 360 experience, and be up to date with industry trends, digital, activation, and brand.

Being the creative thinker you are, brainstorming will be the highlight of your day – whether you are working alone or with a copywriter. You will be a great thinker with ridiculous amounts of great ideas. You work to understand the problem and offer left-of-centre solutions for use across all channels. You “get” retail and understand it’s more than shouting and big prices, and understand the nuances of brand using the positioning, purpose and platforms in your creative. You are adept at social media, storytelling and activations and know how they integrate with traditional channels.

You will ideally have industry creative recognition under your belt, and if not, you will definitely be aspiring to achieve these.

If you are ready to work with a top agency, great team, win awards with your thinking and work hard - send your cv and work to Hana Chadwick at The Creative Store, email hana@thecreativestore.co.nz, or call Hana at The Creative Store on (09) 365 1077 for more details.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: Spark by Colenso BBDO and PHD

Why we like it: Spark's Santaline has been taking children's wish list requests for the past 24 years, but this year, there will be someone there to answer the phone rather than it going through to voicemail. As the ad explains, the helpers were required to have a jolly disposition and that's on display as the Metlifecare retirees wear festive accessories and take calls with a big smile. It's also lovely to watch as the two generations of children and elderly are connected through a shared love of Christmas.

Who's it for: Westpac by FCB Media

Why we like it: The ad breaks may be full of Christmas spots and the holiday is drawing closer, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop looking at serious topics like diversity in business. Westpac gets straight to the point in this video with the findings from a Deloitte study, commissioned by the bank, that asked businesses to share their thoughts on women in leadership. The video lets the numbers speak for themselves before Westpac shares its views about the value of women's skills and diversity in the workplace. Paired with a print takeover that saw only 29 percent of the New Zealand Herald printed (to represent the percentage of women business leaders in New Zealand), this campaign made us sit up and pay attention.

Who's it for: TSB

Why we like it: Christmas day might see children running to the tree with excitement about what lies beneath but that doesn't mean adults don't have wish lists too. In the spot, TSB explores what makes the best present in the world and the varied responses show it's not always something that can be wrapped up and placed under a tree. We particularly love how the father goes from new sheets for his bed to an around the world trip to show his son all the different cultures.

Who's it for:Trade Me by DDB

Why we like it: If your friend accidentally puts a sculpture head through your parents' glass coffee table, don't fret, Trade Me has you covered. The narrative of parents going away on holiday and leaving the house under the responsibility of their party-loving teenagers is not a new one, but Trade Me's put its own spin on it to show how its service can come in handy to replace anything that gets damaged—or in this case, destroyed.
