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.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    Who's it for: New World by 99

    Why we like it: Noel is back and you know what that means—Christmas is just around the corner. The loveable Noel, a New World staff member by day and Santa by night, has been making heads turn since his debut appearance in 2014 and this year, his secret identity is finally revealed in a daydream. The media frenzy and arrest differentiate this spot from other Christmas campaigns as well as the previous, less action-packed ads featuring a slightly less conspicuous version of the character. Let's just hope that Noel's vision of Santa being arrested doesn't come true.

    Who's it for: Arnott's by Y&R and Curious Film

    Why we like it: The wait is over. Steve Hansen and Zoë Bell have managed to save the world. 'Apocalypse Steve Hanse', has to be one of the most bizarre campaigns of the year but it deserves credit for breaking the mould of the traditional TVC by creating a short film for the big screen. It's also good to see Hansen and Bell share the lead roles in what is an audacious bit of storytelling from the team at Y&R.  

    Who's it for: Briscoes by Ogilvy & Mather

    Why we like it: We may be six weeks out from Christmas, but for many, the festive fun starts now with decorating the house. Briscoes is getting into the fun and amping it up with the addition of a surprise. It's given Trevor's bachelor pad a Christmas makeover and it's hard to avoid the warm fuzzies as you see his friends and family come out to help before the big reveal. 

    Who's it for: Kiwiplates by Saatchi & Saatchi

    Why we like it:  Personalised number plates have long been a car accessory for extroverts but Kiwiplates is on a mission to make them mainstream. Last year, the company's managing director, Rob Kent, told NZ Herald it wanted to "normalise personal plates to make it more socially acceptable for everyone" and this spot is a sign of that mission, with the takeaway message being one about the personalised plates suiting everyone's activities.
