Boutique branding and design agency seeks amazing design director with a background in designing for luxury clients for long-term relationship and more…
Looking for your perfect next step? Are you already a design director with a folio bursting with brand creation, brand communications and long-term relationships with clients? Do you love mentoring and nurturing talent and ability in less experienced designers? And do you just love great design, including typography, photography, graphic design? Well this might just give you all of this.
This agency is not large - though not tiny either - based just south of the river in London, but still very accessible, and they have some very serious plans for growth over the next few years. So the creative director needs to find a "right hand man or woman" to look after several key clients - leading a small team, working with those clients to establish long term relationships and ongoing creative work, and also rolling up your sleeves to design yourself alongside your team.
They work with some fashion retailers, some high end property clients, and others - this is not a heavily corporate agency, but more agile and not only stopping work once a branding project is done, but continuing on to further build on this with a variety of deisgn projects across enviornmental graphics, literature, digital and sometimes even into promotional campaigns too.
They'd like to find a design director who's either already been at this level for a little while, or possibly wants a step up into it from senior designer (but if that's you, you'll need to have led project teams and led pitches and presentations with clients already).
They'll pay a good salary for the right person, and they're going to be picky - the fit must be right creatively, but also someone who willl love to "grow" less experienced designers in ability and confidence, and who'll enjoy forging a real bond within the team too. Prima donna's won't fit here - but passion and talent will.
Please send us your cv and your branding/communications work for clients in your folio (this is not only about beautiful photographic fashion campaigns - we need to see brand creation and some retail brandiing and environmental graphics too please).
We are sorry but we can only reply to those people who will really fit the bill for this role - but we will look at every cv/folio we receive.
