Design Director

  • Auckland

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly regarded, boutique agency with lots of attitude.

Our client is looking for a design director / art director / ideas generator to join their team on a 3 – 4 day a week, ongoing contract basis.

You will be a hands-on designer, supported by a senior and junior. Being a high level creative designer, unique and bespoke ideas will come easily to you, you will relish sharing your ideas and brainstorming with the team. Ideally you will be an all-round creative with 360 experience, social, content and illustration skills.

The most important aspect to this role is brand – your understanding of brand, understanding how to delve into the emotional content of brand, and being able to return the brief with well crafted design.

You will be confident working with clients, can take a mean brief and really get to the essence of the outcome clients are looking for. Being a highly conceptual thinker, you will enjoy the challenge and be full of cool ideas around brand engagement, packaging design and FMCG.

If you have swagger in your design and enjoy working on bespoke, individual design projects – and love a 3 - 4 day assignment ongoing, send your CV and work to Hana Chadwick at The Creative Store, email, or call (09) 365 1077 to discuss the role further. Reference: Job 2454.

Who’s it for: Auckland City Mission by 99 

Why we like it: To encourage donations to the Auckland City Mission, and less waste during the festive season, this ad is a mix of humour and seriousness to highlight the City Mission’s new initiative. Instead of buying a silly gift which never gets used  – a rubber chicken or chattering teeth for example – buy one off the website, through which the money goes to the City Mission and the recipient gets an email. It’s a great idea for a wonderful cause.


Who’s it for: Lotto New Zealand by DDB​

Why we like it: Who doesn’t love a joyful reunion (Love Actually anyone?) – Lotto’s latest ad, part of the Imagine campaign, reunites the two armoured truck drivers in a Christmas surprise. While it may not have quite the same impact if you didn’t see the Amoured Truck spot, it’s still festive enough to make you smile.


Who’s it for: Pak’n’Save by FCB​

Why we like it: Stickman is celebrating Christmas with his cousin Snowy the Snowman. As usual, the spots have Stickman poking a bit of fun at the often mundane task of grocery shopping. Let's hope that Snowy survives the Kiwi heat.
