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: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners

Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?

Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.

Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello

Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
