We’re working with a unique and innovative brand, focused on making a positive difference in people’s lives, to find an established Design Director who is excited about changing the way people think, feel and behave through design.
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to take on a good amount of responsibility and drive design projects from initial, conceptual stages through to completion and delivery. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with internal teams as well as external clients to deliver campaigns and a diverse range of design materials for multiple communications channels and will play a key role in setting the creative direction for projects. You’ll have a strong creative voice within the business and will need to be confident presenting strategic ideas, concepts and solutions to internal stakeholders and clients alike.
The role would suit an established, client facing DD who is confident leading design programs on key accounts, developing thoughtful concepts and communications and presenting ideas/work to clients in an inspiring and influential way but still enjoys being hands on with the day to day delivery of projects too. You’ll be supporting a Global Creative Director and mentoring less experienced members of the team to produce outstanding and engaging creative solutions that continuously surprise and delight. This is a rewarding environment with huge scope for influencing the creative output of some high-profile client projects.
Our ideal candidate:
A strong conceptual thinker with experience in advertising and design, we’d really like to see a strong mix of campaign work as well as other design formats and materials.
Proven experience managing, nurturing and mentoring a team.
Someone adept at building great relationships both internally and with clients.
Excellent attention to detail and has the ability to produce accurate, first-class work themself.
Confident overseeing and making sound judgements on creative work as well as getting hands on when required.
A credible senior who is influential and inspiring in client meetings.
