Are you a talented Senior brand and packaging designer, proven in your career to date and looking for a new challenge this year?
Keen on a role that will challenge you to that next step while being mentored in a growing and progressive design agency?
My client, one of New Zealand's newest and freshest design agencies, is now on the hunt for a super talented individual to add to its growing team. Even if you're a dynamic intermediate level designer looking for that senior move, this role is worth reviewing!
This role reports to the Director's and is autonomous when required in its organisation and execution requirements. The designer will be expected to own responsibility for job management, development and its creative outputs, devising concepts that exceed expectations and presenting to clients with confidence and flair, while being mentored by some of the best in the industry.
The new designer will be a conscientious self-starter, efficient with their time and budgets and have plenty of experience in an agency environment working across diverse and unique brands. They will be able to establish and maintain open, honest and effective communication channels both with clients and colleagues, building excellent relationships from the outset. By nature, a fresh eye, ability and passion to create outstanding design outputs are key for this role!
This is the perfect role for a passionate designer keen to excel in their craft and work across a range of top companies.

Ben, your inspiration is worthy of the leadership position you have already been recognised for. As an [old-ish] person I wholeheartedly endorse your ambition and add this observation: - Kiwis are often too fearful of 'what-others-think-of-me' - Tall Poppy syndrome ...
The saddest thing about this post, is a reminder of how sh$t this industry is. A brand puts out an RFI to the industry, which you would guess anyone non-conflicted would have responded to? A local agency (yep, owned by ...

It's not uncommon for Kiwibank to use organisations outside of New Zealand. I understand they were using a South African organisation on their failed SAP project. Seems odd for a purpose driven organisation to not "live their brand".

Who's it for: NZTA by Clemenger BBDO
Why we like it: This campaign is jarring. The woman in this spot is no actor, her name is Ashleigh and she lost her cousin to drug driving. Every (wo)man and their dog know the dangers of drunk driving in New Zealand, but driving while under the influence of drugs is often overlooked. The campaign is linked to Facebook and Instagram pages where people can share their own experiences on the issue – in a bid to make sure no more people die from drug driving in New Zealand.
Who's it for: Air New Zealand
Why we like it: Air New Zealand is doing what Air New Zealand does, teasing us with something important relating to itself and the All Blacks, launching on 1 August. One cheerful YouTube commenter suggested this series is preempting the release of a new safety video. Please, dear god no. Not another All Blacks safety video. We already had to endure the Men In Black tribute piece that was confusing on many many levels, not least because at the time it was released, the most recent Men In Black film release was three years previous. Also, as someone who has never seen a single film in the franchise, the talking dog was a confusing addition to an airline safety video. And do we dare mention the curse of that video, that its star rapper Israel Dagg wasn't even called up to the world cup team... it's all just too much to process on a Tuesday.
