Amazing opportunity to build your design footprint and voice
Leading a small, perfectly formed, team
Strategically led agency need your amazing storytelling and ability to generate ideas
Are you a talented Senior Designer/Design Director looking to take things to the next level. This is a fantastic chance to lead a small team and work with sound strategy to create and develop the “big idea” into something meaningful and compelling.
You’ll need a great portfolio of branding design work, showing the depth of thought and execution, and a strong CV of work in a similar strategic branding design environment. Due to the leadership component of the role, it’s highly unlikely you’ll have less than 10 years commercial design experience under your belt.
We’re seeking someone who is a collaborator, team player and outstanding communicator with excellent interpersonal skills; who is equally at home leading the team, working with colleagues, or dealing with clients and suppliers.
This company have an established client base, but often get called on to do things truly outside of the box, so the work will be varied and challenging. They need someone who is hungry for different briefs and challenges and can roll up their sleeves to ensure things are delivered that excite and surprise clients. Be prepared to explore different avenues of thought and aesthetic in your determination to resist the usual!
If you think you’re up for the challenge and have the background and portfolio to show this, please send your CV and portfolio (pdf or web link) to email@example.com

From what I heard, both companies were missing the mark so probably a smart move. Interesting that UX, CX and ‘organisational design’ (whatever that is) are cited as a core pillar of the combined entity when neither were considered strong ...
Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
