You have strong branding, logo and identity development with a team player personality. You must also have experience in FMCG Packaging with 5+ years of design experience.

You have an understanding and appreciation of how creative ideas and design needs to have strategic, commercial and financial reality in the marketplace. You demonstrate through experience a level of proficiency in all aspects of design from: idea generation to typography, layout to technical understanding and ability, to printing methods and QA.

You will be working within a great creative team and roster of clients, to truly deliver inspiring creative ideas. You are designated as a “Middleweight Creative” because of your experience, skills and ability, and understand the importance of good decision-making. You are the advocate of great design, but must also be the advocate
of the consumer.

You could be called on to be a participant in and contributor to each and every part of our process: from the acceptance of the brief, planning of the project, creating outstanding design directions, client presentations, to assisting other creative team members as required. You will be praised when your own efforts, and the teams are successful, but know very well the challenges.

Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB and Goodoil

Why we like it: The Warehouse is getting real about life's complications. Waiting for a sale can be frustrating and while retail ads often promote particular discounts, this shows a change in The Warehouse's strategy to offer low process every day. It puts the focus on the customer's needs rather than the products, and in turn, makes the retailer a strong competitor in the market.

Who's it for: Fresh by Work Communication and Eight

Why we like it: Who said toilet paper ads had to be boring? Dancing and toilet paper aren't typically associated but the combination of the two makes for quite an intriguing display. And beyond its promotion of the strength and suitability for sensitive skin, the spot is sure to make the toilet paper brand the one of choice for any toilet paper-themed costume parties. 

Who's it for: Fire and Emergency NZ by FCB and Tom Sainsbury

Why we like it: Nothing says check your smoke alarms like a bit of cheeky banter between a barbecue and a smoke alarm. The reminder to check your alarms is not a new one, but getting it across with anthropomorphic household items certainly offers a fresh take on the important message. If this first effort is anything to go by, then Snapchat comedian Tom Sainsbury is set to become a staple in local advertising over the next few months.
