The globally awarded team at ClemengerBBDO Touchcast in Wellington is looking for a new design leader for their digital division.
So who are we after?
You'll be from a strong design background, and have experience with brand Identity projects for major brands. Large website design projects will feature in your portfolio and you'll walk the walk, as much as your talk the talk! You'll have experience in managing and mentoring others – and be motivated to do more of that. You're confident in front of clients and key stakeholders and can present your work with articulate conviction.
What makes this role unique?
This division sits within one of the most awarded agencies in Australasia. While large website builds and Brand ID projects feature in the day-to-day, there are also various projects that are driven by creative ideas. Typically these opportunities might come from a strategic creative response to our clients needs. On those projects there would be collaboration with the ECD and Creative Department.
What is the opportunity?
The role is a 50/50 spliit between Design and Leading the team. So you still get to do what you love (design), but you also get to manage and lead a team.
Required Skills and experience
• 8+ years in a design-led role
• Experience designing and implementing large websites that are not only functional but also beautiful and progressive in their approach.
• Lead designer for large brand identity projects across multiple outputs
• Solid understanding of UX principals and best practice
• Proven experience managing and coaching others (successfully)
• Client facing skills

Great article Claudia. The thinking our industries offer for little remuneration or free is astounding. Clients need to be aware the time and effort put into PRES campaigns mirrors those of more 'established' marcoms channels.

I cannot but agree with you. It's a BIG shame to see that the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of what a solid integrated PR campaign stands for and can deliver still sits in decision-makers & budget-rulers minds. That in the end ...

Who's it for: Pak'nSave by FCB
Why we like it: With so much sporting action in the past month, brands choosing to campaign around it are working to keep up with the results, and Pak'nSave and its Stickman have demonstrated an impressive effort following Emirates Team New Zealand's America's Cup win. This video recreating the race between Emirates Team New Zealand and Oracle Team USA was shared on the supermarket's YouTube channel earlier today with some topical commentary about changing the rules, our competitor dropping the tin foil—no doubt a reference to a boat's foils—and Grant Dalton wanting to borrow some of Jimmy Spithill's cash.
Who's it for: New Zealand Transport Agency by Clemenger BBDO
Why we like it: Clemenger BBDO and NZTA's relationship has delivered some powerful work and this campaign following Rats is no different. It's said your life flashes before your eyes when you die, but in this case, Rats' life flashes before his eyes as a warning to not get behind the wheel under the influence. Recalling his happy memories serves as a reminder of what he has to lose should something go wrong. The message is just as powerful as ads that showing an accident, moving away from the doom and gloom to highlight all the great things in our lives and to make the decision to not get behind the wheel an appealing one.
Who's it for:Mastercard by McCann Sydney
Why we like it: Rugby fever has swept the nation and Mastercard's getting amongst it by asking New Zealanders to tap for their town. The supporting creative sees the return of Richie McCaw's number one fan and best mate Tim in his usual loud and over-enthusiastic manner. But this time, he's joined by other rugby fans who break out into a game in the supermarket to get products to the checkout so Mastercards can be tapped. The town with the most taps will see McCaw take on its local team.
