  • $120k - $140k

My client, one of New Zealand's leading brand agencies, is on the hunt for a super talented senior designer to add to their growing team. This candidate will be required to lead brand and packaging design projects. They will report to the Creative Director but will be expected to take a lot of responsibility for the job management and its creative outputs.

They will be a conscientious self-starter and have plenty of experience in an agency environment working across diverse brands, from food and beverage to the service and manufacture sectors. They will have a fresh eye and create outstanding design.

The new graphic designer will be key to assisting the company in moving forwards in 2018, so energy and innovative thinking will be the main focus for the person joining the team. Creative excellence and speed at delivery are required.

The candidate needs to be as much a doer as big-picture thinker and talented craft designer – a nice balance of both would be ideal. The successful candidate will be mature, experienced, may be awarded in their career, that sees themselves working in a small, creative, hands-on team.

This is the perfect role for a talented intermediate looking to step up or a passionate senior keen to excel in their craft and work on award-winning projects.

Who’s it for: Forsyth Barr/Summer by FCB New Zealand

Why we like it: New Zealanders are notorious for taking serious decisions lightly and this tongue-in-cheek ad by FCB for Forsyth Barr’s Summer KiwiSaver scheme gets that tone just right. A human-sized sheep in trendy clothing talking about his negligence towards his financial responsibilities is enough to get a chuckle out of anyone. The thinly veiled analogy to ‘not be a sheep(le)’ and take responsibility is not preachy but light-hearted.

Who’s it for: ANZ by TBWA

Why we like it: We all know it’s rare to see a heart-to-heart between two men on television so it’s nice to see just that in ANZ’s new KiwiSaver ad by TBWA. The way KiwiSaver is brought up in the ads is pretty clunkily approached but adding other topics such as dating, household chores and life makes the ad an endearing watch.

Who’s it forSpark by Colenso BBDO

Why we like it: Matariki season is bringing with it a lot of joy and pride nationwide this year. Spark’s unique video embraces what is important about our very own New Year – family, traditions and knowledge. More an educational resource than ad, the care taken to make the imagery and sentiment culturally appropriate is evident in the decision to include all nine Matariki stars. The animation artfully articulates the stories behind the constellation while the te reo Māori script is as much soothing as it is exciting to see the language celebrated.
