Senior Creative/Design Director
A highly sought after agency, nestled quite comfortably in East London are looking for their next Senior Creative/Design Director, as the one they have is moving on to pastures new. These guys are very much established in the fashion and retail branding sector (over 3 decades to be exact) and help retailers come up with anything from a new brand creation, to forecasting the next trends and they do this on a global scale.
This is a spearhead role and will sit underneath the owner and a Creative Director of the more product side of the business. You will be responsible for being the face of the creative team to clients and the creative mastermind to lead and oversee the creative output of the team, with the help of your two direct reports, one senior and one junior. You will be hands on designing when you need to it - but you will have much more of a creative directional role here!
Clients come in and work with the creative team extremely closely and you will be finding yourself rubbing shoulders with the top dogs of some of the world’s biggest retailers, from value/high street to luxury fashion houses, speaking about how and why they should do what you and your team have come up with. Strategy is a bit part of their offering and business, so you would need to have an understanding of this and experience in working alongside strategy, plus, talking clients through it, in a visual way, so it is creatively delivered.
This is a very interesting and exciting opportunity for you to come in and really take the lead, creatively and internally within the studio, so if you have an interest and you have experience in designing for retail and fashion, please drop your portfolio over, demonstrating this.
