Wanted: Intermediate Creative Team feat. mad digi skills.

  • Auckland - Auckland CBD

Who we are:
Hi there. You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand. Auckland-based digital ad agency and NZ’s largest indie. We’re a unique mix of creatives, technologists, suits and digital media wizards, which means we get the digital space in a way most agencies only pretend to. Our creative dept is made up of 25 supremely talented people including copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs. On top of that we also have a fulltime director of photography and a motion graphics animator, all led by a highly experienced and internationally awarded CD. Making awesome ideas happen is what we do. What we need is a super talented creative team to jump onboard and add their awesomeness to ours.

Who you are:

  • A creative team with at least 3 years of fulltime agency experience under your belt.
  • You want to push the creative boat out in the digital space and you have a portfolio of work that proves it (if you want to make TV ads, we’re not for you).
  • You’re genuine content consumers, a hyperactive social media users and certified memeologists.
  • Collaborating closely with other creatives including designers and developers is not a problem, in fact you think it’s fun.
  • You’ve already picked up the odd shiny trophy or two for some of your work and are champing at the bit to pick up a few more.
  • And you’ll be 'glass half full’ kind of people because we are as an agency.

  • Stuff you get when you work with us:
    You’ll work with (and learn from) one of the biggest, brightest and most diverse creative teams in the country. And you’ll get opportunities, both big and small, across Young+Shand’s entire client roster (no pigeon holes here). Brands like Steinlager, Speights, Mac’s, Johnnie Walker, NZ Blood, V and 2degrees just to name a few. We’re centrally located in Britomart, which puts you in the centre of everything. Plus, along with chance to do the best work of your career, you’ll also get a life outside of work - sure, we work as hard as anyone, but we also understand the meaning of work/life balance.

    PS. There’s free lunch on Fridays and a chiller full of beer for your pleasure… not that that would influence your decision or anything.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    Who's it for: Meridian Energy by Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu

    Why we like it: To paraphrase, Notorious B.I.G once rapped that more money meant more problems. But according to Meridian, more money actually means more time to spend on a whole lot of fun. The series of ads are simple, short and to the point, but with a suave Jeremy Wells and his handsomely attired pug by his side, the videos serve as a memorable reminder of Meridian's offerings. 

    Who's it for: Boundary Road Brewery by TBWA

    Why we like it: Like any good sequel nowadays, Boundary Road Brewery announced the return of its Chocolate Moose Chocolate Porter with a rather dramatic visual offering. We love the pulsating soundtrack and earthy imagery, presenting what is essentially a man dressed as a moose in a tantalising veil of mystery and intrigue. We're not totally convinced as to the taste of a chocolate flavoured alcoholic beverage, but at least BRB's Wes Anderson-style humanimal does the job of sparking some intrigue.

    Who's it for: Whittaker's Chocolate by Assignment Group

    Why we like it: Whittaker's latest innovative endeavour—chocolate toffee milk—harks back to the good ol' days of careful artisanal craft. The video's focus on the worn out hands and vintage tools gives it a classic and restrained elegance that stands out in today's fast-paced, hyperactive advertising world. And while no chocolate is shown in the video, it creates an appetite for the new chocolate and toffee blend.
