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: ASB by With Collective and Curious Films

Why we like it: The True Rewarden sheriff is back – and she’s here to teach us a lesson at the True Rewarden Academy training camp. The spot is simple and effective, with the sheriff explaining what True Rewards can be used for. We like Rachel House as the ‘True Rewarden’ as she brings great humour to the ad and hope ASB continues using the sheriff for further campaigns. 

Who's it for: LifeDirect by Trade Me by Y&R and Flying Fish

Why we like it: We all know unfortunate events happen to everyone at some time and we should be prepared. While most of us probably won’t end up in a shark's mouth, this is the premise of the hilarious new spot from LifeDirect by TradeMe. While the Jaws-esque ad is a change from Simon the Sloth (RIP), it's nice to see a bit of humour and fun injected into what can be a sometimes boring (but necessary) industry. 

Who's it for: Phloe from Douglas Pharmaceuticals by YoungShand and Reel Factory 

Why we like it: We can't go past ads that feature cute dogs and this one is no exception. Using a parade of misbehaving pooches to bring up the issue of bowel health is a clever move from Phloe. It's not clinical or scary and will ensure the audience is watching. Will be interesting to see how this campaign develops further or if another direction is taken.
