We are a small design studio born out of Saatchi & Saatchi’s global design unit with a strong strategic focus and passion for bringing ideas to life.
Our vision is to help our clients grow and benefit from the power of creative thinking and design throughout all aspects of their business.
This leads us into all manifestations of design – space, business purposing and storytelling, branding and graphic design.
We pride ourselves on building strong valued relationships with our clients by producing great work and delivering an experience that makes their lives easier and their business better. With much of our work, our relationships run deeper than creative services provider alone, as we like to become fully immersed in our clients’ business and the opportunities to help them grow.
We are currently working on a number of highly creative-led businesses, brands and projects, a handful of international clients, along with a number of entrepreneurial enterprises and business professionals, plus delivering a wide range of design services for consumer-led brands.
We are experiencing strong growth and hence looking to enhance our team with the addition of a design director who will have a proven track record in all manner of graphic and brand design – probably with some years’ experience in a bigger design studio and or working in your own business. We would expect you to have:
• 10+ years in the industry
• Brand design and strategy experience
• Confidence to work directly with clients
• And a few awards up your sleeve
We imagine you too will have strong people skills, a willingness to share your ideas and thinking, and a desire to take on the challenges of changing the way clients engage with the creative services sector… oh and of course keen to become part of a tight-knit team who love what we do and enjoy having a little fun along the way.
If this sounds like you we would love to talk with you and see you how you might be able to add to our existing expertise.
Please send portfolios, contact and details to Derek Lockwood at email@example.com
If you are looking for our website - it‘s on its way – promise - we will of course happily share the work we have done when we meet.
So they're taking a leaf out of Countdown's book and essentially putting products on price lockdown? Meh. Can't even remember the last time I went into a Warehouse but the latest ads with yellow backgrounds are frankly a very silly ...
Utterly cringeworthy ads.
Hasn't it always been that?
I have been enjoying paperboy. At 50 years of age, I am not of the demographic target, but I still have a pulse. The harbour news went from dull to dead boring once the oldtimer who wrote the opinions section ...
Hello uncanny valley!
Decline pitches from clients you know be shady or hopeless. If you don't you only have yourselves to blame. Same advice applies to film companies. If you don't like the smell of the brief don't pitch. Set some criteria for ...

Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB and Goodoil
Why we like it: The Warehouse is getting real about life's complications. Waiting for a sale can be frustrating and while retail ads often promote particular discounts, this shows a change in The Warehouse's strategy to offer low process every day. It puts the focus on the customer's needs rather than the products, and in turn, makes the retailer a strong competitor in the market.
Who's it for: Fresh by Work Communication and Eight
Why we like it: Who said toilet paper ads had to be boring? Dancing and toilet paper aren't typically associated but the combination of the two makes for quite an intriguing display. And beyond its promotion of the strength and suitability for sensitive skin, the spot is sure to make the toilet paper brand the one of choice for any toilet paper-themed costume parties.
Who's it for: Fire and Emergency NZ by FCB and Tom Sainsbury
Why we like it: Nothing says check your smoke alarms like a bit of cheeky banter between a barbecue and a smoke alarm. The reminder to check your alarms is not a new one, but getting it across with anthropomorphic household items certainly offers a fresh take on the important message. If this first effort is anything to go by, then Snapchat comedian Tom Sainsbury is set to become a staple in local advertising over the next few months.
