This role will see you work on artwork and concepts across a range of mediums including press, catalogues, brochures, digital and TV in a fast paced environment.
As well as attention to detail that’s second to none, your speed and proficiency will be put to the test as you multi-task your way through numerous jobs at any given time.
Whilst working closely with all departments, you will have excellent layout and typographic skills as well as the ability to work within clearly defined brand guidelines to produce high quality work.
You are a problem solver who attacks challenges head on with drive and passion.
The role will see you:
Have a firm understanding of pre-press and are an absolute master of InDesign (and its shortcuts), Photoshop and Illustrator within a Mac environment
HTML/CSS skills – not full on front end development but some experience working with HTML/CSS to understand how a web asset is built and ability to make animated web tiles
CMS Platform experience, for example Sizmek
Experience working with developers and designers
There will be a crossover between print and digital so a good knowledge of setting up and preparing files for output are required
Please do not apply if you are seeking a design position. This is a finished art/digital role and you should thrive on creating technically accurate work.
Ideally you will have 3-5 years experience in an agency environment.
If this sounds like you, please email your CV and a brief cover letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org referencing TBA240718.
To apply, you must have the right to live and work in New Zealand.

Congratulations on issue 247! Here's to issue 500!
that's what we heard
any truth to the rumour that they have dumped 2D for Voda?
Very well played R&R (aged 5) and Special (aged 10) from all of us at the adolescent Big (aged 15).
Wonder what NZ Governments tax take is from the top 4 ranked websites. I think we can probably describe it as SF & A

Who’s it for: McDonald's by DDB
Why we like it: Just about everybody will be able to relate to waking up the morning after the night before, and it's not a pretty sight. The latest McDonald's campaign portrays the ease at which delivery service Uber Eats can come to your rescue in times of need perfectly, with a knight-in-shining McDonald's livery (although it seems unlikely an Uber driver would wear that) dropping off your McMuffin straight to your door.
Who’s it for: TAB by VMLY&R
Why we like it: It's summer and everyone's amped for the continuing summer of sport schedule, not least tennis fans eagerly awaiting the make-or-break news from Roger Federer at this year's Australian Open. The TAB has tapped into the anticipation nicely with this spot, relating the tennis to the launch of new live betting capabilities.
Who’s it for: Lotto NZ by DDB
Why we like it: A favourite from 2018 is back to welcome the already work weary back to reality – with the two protagonists of Lotto's armoured truck campaign gazing happily out to sea from their flash campervan. No doubt the first week back at work alone is enough to inspire a fair few to buy a Lotto ticket, but this is a nice, topical ad for the start of the year.
Who’s it for: Air New Zealand by True
Why we like it: It seems unfair that one tiny kiwi with no limbs to squeeze into a shrinking economy seat gets to try out all seat options for mid-haul travel, but at least Pete seems like a personable guy. Pitched to get more Singaporean tourists onto our shores, the campaign does show New Zealand bathed in a lovely golden light that's sure to get the tourists flocking.
Who’s it for: Warehouse Stationery by DDB
Why we like it: If we think going back to work is bad, it's nothing compared to the dread a child feels when an 'endless summer' turns into back-to-school-specials. But this lighthearted campaign from Warehouse Stationery injects some humour into the difficult time year, with an 'undercover student' gathering pertinent intelligence about the nature of school stationery from primary school students.
