Wanted: Retail Mac Designer who wants to dive into digi.

  • 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. It’s an awesome team that needs a super-fast retail mac op who’s ready to embrace the digital space.

Who you are:

  • We're looking for a person with a minimum of 3-5 years' experience as a Mac Op in a fast-paced retail environment.
  • You’ll know your craft inside and out, but you’ll also be up for learning new things, trying new approaches and ways of working.
  • You think of accuracy and attention to detail as your sixth and seventh senses.
  • You’ll either know the digi space or be ready and willing to dive headfirst into it.
  • Collaborating closely with other creatives including designers, copywriters, art directors and developers is not a problem for you.
  • Adding value through digi design is something you can do when needed.
  • And you’ll be a 'glass half full’ kind of person because we are as an agency.

  • Stuff you’ll need in your locker:
    For starters, you’ll need Zen-like mastery of the Adobe Creative Suite:
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • InDesign
  • Experience Design
  • Animate
    And you’ll need a portfolio of work that proves you can.

  • Really, really want to pique our interest? In addition you might also know:
  • UX: process flow, wire-framing, user journeys
  • Motion: After Effects, Cinema 4D, Premiere Pro

  • 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, and Smirnoff just to name a few. We’re centrally located in Britomart, which puts you in the centre of everything. You’ll get lunch every Friday, which means about as much Toto’s pizza as you can eat. 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.

    Who is it for:2degrees by DDB

    Why we like it: Nearly 10 years after its arrival in the market, 2degrees is making itself and its values known with a new brand campaign. While the services of the telco, including phone and internet, are intangible and encourage an esoteric approach to the marketing, this spot cleverly connects 2degrees with what it's all about: communication. With a mellow backing track and soft-voiced narrator, it explores all the different forms of communication while throwing in some humour like missing teeth and subtly calls out women for wearing activewear when visiting a cafe.

    Who's it for: Samsung by Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish

    Why we like it: Blink and you'll miss it. Samsung went bold to launch its new Galaxy S9 by placing 25 of the phones around a set that in five-seconds erupted into a display of colour and movement. The slow-motion video, the result of the display, highlights the camera as well as the technical nouse of Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish who bravely accepted the challenge and shot it all in front of a live audience.

    Who's it for: Holden by Special Group

    Why we like it: Faced with the challenge of people thinking its Australian factory was closing down, Holden's responded with this spot showing that's far from the case. As well as responding to the challenge at hand, the ad cleverly includes some promotion of specific car features and confirms the brand is here to stay by discussing what it has in store in the future.

    Who's it for: Scapegrace by Motion Sickness

    Why we like it: How do you change your name and make consumers aware of it? This spot by Scapegrace, formerly Rogue Society, does just that. It also helps customers accept the change by explaining the reason behind it, which in this case is a bonus lesson in international trade laws. StopPress' audience has responded well, with compliments for both the brand and agency and we agree it's a great piece of work.
