Design Director

  • Melbourne

Are you looking to make the move to Australia and love to work with a Melbourne agency in a Design Director capacity? We have the perfect opportunity for you to join an established Melbourne / Sydney / Queensland 70 strong team.

This is a progressive agency covering a range of clients from boutique – local and international, across private sector and government. Their clients are diverse and driven – and together they share the goal – to add value and create places where everyone prospers. Together.

Working closely on a day to day basis with the Creative Director, you will bring your solid design experience to this role, showcasing an array of design skills across a range of sectors. This role will lead from the front. You will be a practicing creative who can hone the craft and deliver high level execution for both you and your team.

In this role you will be a client-facing designer, who can guide the rollout and delivery of major campaigns and brands — striving for, and achieving, award-winning outcomes.

Key responsibilities and tasks will include conceptual thinking, strong lateral thinking, excellent design craft, exceptional typography and composition skills, and fluency in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

You will develop end-to-end campaigns and brands that meet standards set by the Creative Director, have comprehensive knowledge of creative trends and international design, along with the ability to write articulate design rationales for presentations.

In this role you will lead by example, provide your team with clear creative briefs, and provide unique creative insights to advance and improve projects.

If you are a Design Director or a Senior Designer ready to take that step up and ready to move to Melbourne – and enjoy leading the creative team across award winning design – send your CV and work to Hana Chadwick, email, or call The Creative Store on (09) 365 1077 for more details.

Who's it for: Got A Trade by Ogilvy NZ

Why we like it: Got A Trade has gone down a clever route with its latest campaign by disguising the ad as a music video. Featuring New Zealand and Australian rock royalty – the offspring of Neil Finn and Jimmy Barnes – the highlight is the moving set pieces made by the real-life apprentices and trainees. A fun, inventive and relatable spot. 

Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB New Zealand

Why we like it: The Warehouse gets the right recipe with its campaign for Kiwi Scrabble – you can’t go wrong with much-loved Kiwi celebrities chef/author Jo Seagar and boxer David Tua. In the spot Seagar gives it her all, igniting the age-old debate over who is the rightful owner of the pavlova – New Zealand or Australia. It’s funny and fresh and will get you craving a piece of pav. 

Who's it for: Air New Zealand 

Why we like it: Babies are in the news at the moment (looking at you Meghan and Harry) and while Air New Zealand’s latest campaign predates the Royal announcement, who can go past cute, smiley cherubs. While most of the babes are happy in the Skycouch, it’s nice to see a few tears which are definitely a reality for parents out there.
