Art Director/Senior Director
We are looking to bolster our team further with a talented creative. This is a hybrid role and therefore we need someone with both creative and management experience. In terms of creative, you should have experience of taking a project from the ideation stage all the way to completion and everything in between, whether that involves, pitching concepts to the client, writing film treatments, directing art or developing a digital experience.
The manager in you should feel completely comfortable keeping track of large budgets, creating project plans, organizing both internal and external resource as well as understanding and communicating the implications of dependencies and risk.
Finally, we are not just looking for a well-rounded creative, but someone who has experience and knowledge of working with new digital technologies, and their application to integrated marketing campaigns.
Working under the direction of the agencies Creative Lead you will touch a range of projects. While support and help will always be there, you will be given as much responsibility as you can handle; micro management is not favored here and we would prefer to let you have freedom creatively.
The right person will possess a hunger and natural curiosity for both technology and marketing. Someone who wants to create work that has never been done before, that is award-winning and helps to re-shape our clients marketing strategies.
Personality and enthusiasm is key for us, a person that is not afraid to speak up and be bold in their approach will fit in well.

Our work connects consumers and brands by creating campaigns and content that digs deeper and imagines more.
