Wanted: Intermediate Art Director w/ a passion for dope digi work.
Hi there, friend. Let’s kick off with a question. Does your job title read something like Art Director? It does? Try question number two then. Have you called yourself that for more than three years? If that’s a ‘yes’ too, let’s see if you can crack the really big question. Ready? Is the wide world of digital and social where you like to bust out your best thinking? Yes x 3 = it’s high time you met us.
Who are we? Glad you asked. We’re Young+Shand; Auckland-based digi ad agency and NZ’s largest indie. Right now we’re about 50-odd peeps with a creative dept of about 20. Talking about creative, we’re made up of copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs. We even have an fulltime agency Director of Photography and a 3D/motion wizard. And that means whatever brilliance you dream up, we can make in-house. Right now we need a super-talented digi AD to pair up with one of our super-talented digi writers.
What sort of stuff would you be doing? Clients we work with on the regs feats. such names as 2degrees, Steinlager, Speights, Mac’s, Smirnoff, V, NZI, and NZ Blood just for starters. But remember, friend, the digi part is the really important bit; we leave the old school brand TVCs and billboards to the greybeards. What gets us out of bed every morning is having the chance to concept and create next-level work that makes awesome use of digital and emerging technologies.
- At least three years' agency experience, working across integrated campaigns, with strong digital chops.
- A portfolio filled with successful campaigns - a collection of metal is a big bonus.
- You’re irrepressibly creative, and constantly coming up with big ideas.
- As an Art Director, you can make anything look good.
Loads of cool things. Y+S is a buzzy hive of talented people making cool digi stuff. Translation = the people are great and the culture’s better. Also, we’re an independent agency and absolutely committed to help our peeps grow and learn new stuff. And we’re based in Britomart which puts us (i.e. you) in the centre of everything. Oh, and there’s free lunch on Fridays and a beer chiller stocked full of suds, not that should sway your thinking or anything.
If all this sounds kinda awesome that’s probably because it kinda is. Ready to hook up with the best and brightest digi peeps around? Drop us a note with a link to your portfolio using the button below.
