With offices in London and Manchester this growing retail design agency boasts an enviable portfolio of house-hold names. With support from a well established client services team they’re on the lookout for a conceptual all rounder who knows how to bring creative ideas to life and shelves.
You’ll be given full creative control for a global client and you’ll be working alongside market leaders who might just teach you a trick or two too. Sound good? Give us a shout if the below sounds like you...
You’ll be the lead writer in the studio, working predominantly on key global accounts. An understanding of scamping, art direction and how ideas come to life visually would be beneficial, but your way with words is your bread and butter. You’ll have support from a creative team of six but the responsibility sits with you to create knock-out, attention grabbing copy and concepts for consumer brands. You’ll also have two direct reports to assist you/nurture.
You’ll help produce brand-led creative that will be implemented across print, packaging digital and branding. You’ll lead solutions exploration sessions whilst talking through your rationale with both your team and your clients - striking the balance between functionality and beautifully crafted work.
Make no mistake this role is shopper-marketing centric but your clients and outputs stretch beyond the shelves and the concepts you come up with will not be restricted to the below the line marketing. This 30 strong agency are split across the north and south with plans to expand further; you should naturally mirror their ambition.
What We’re Looking For
We’re looking for an innovative conceptual thinker who can look at a problem from all angles and bring a positive and can-do mentality to practically bring their ideas to life. It’s all well and good having an idea but you’ll have the rational thinking to back up how it can work in the real world. You’re well versed in attention grabbing, thought provoking copy that gets consumers talking.
You’ll champion the latest trends and ideas that your clients (and your own team) should know about. You’ll lead by example and share your knowledge with more junior creatives. Although having a good understanding of design is important, your copy experience and idea generation skills are what will set you apart from the rest.
We’d like to see a diverse portfolio of strong projects across branding, print and digital - ideally with an fmcg/shopper focus.
