Associate Creative Director

Associate Creative Director - Branding & Packaging Agency

Bristol - £50k - £60k

These guys set up with a strong philosophy 15 years ago, and set out to challenge the prolific big-name London agencies and, given the state of their trophy cabinet they're certainly getting there.

They see themselves as fearless, and endeavour to create world-class design to raise the profile of global brands that are already the people's favourites.

They'll go the extra mile to do what it takes….

They have 3 big C's at the forefront of everything they do, Creativity, Collaboration and Courage - they simply do not settle for ‘ordinary'.

The experience required at Associate Creative Director Level will span branding, packaging and brand identity; all 3 are a must for this level of role within the agency.

It wouldn't suit an ex-London ATL Art Director, or a Senior Digital Designer as the role is much more specific than that unfortunately.

You'll be able to work closely with clients to extract as much info out of them as possible, countering that tricky brief.

You'll be able to capture a brand's identity and portray it through on-pack design, be able to back it up with excellent brand experiences, and perhaps digital portals to keep consumers engaging with the product.

You'll be a superb mentor of juniors, be able to own client relationships and be prepared to roll your sleeves up on the design-front.

The agency environment is sensational; they live and breathe creativity which shines through in everything they craft.

For the big kids, or adults who want to win the bragging rights, there is table football, pool and table tennis, all with ample room for those expansive shots.

They have a fully equipped kitchen that is always stocked with fresh fruit; you can even stick the fruit in the smoothie maker for that healthy breakfast.

They actively encourage the team to sit down and eat breakfast and lunch together at 2 big long tables in the kitchen area, to create that unique team spirit.

They strongly discourage eating at their desks as they feel it's unhealthy and bad for morale.

If you're one who's mind is known to wander then there are lots of little breakout areas - one notable one is the sound-proofed quiet room which offers the luxury of leaving every distraction behind.

There's even a meditation area with headphones and all of the latest meditation software if you need to reset the batteries after a long weekend.

Package-wise these guys have got it on lock-down too.

Basic salary will be in the region of £50k - £60k and on top of that a share in a solid bonus scheme is up for grabs after 12 months.

If you're active then make the most of the cycle to work scheme, eye-care vouchers to soften the blow of the monthly contacts (or annual replacement glasses that get chewed by the dog), enhanced MAT&PAT leave, childcare vouchers to ease going back to work, Xmas shutdown & 25 days' holiday, plus 4:30pm finishes on Fridays, free breakfast and immense access to inspirational events.

Tim Lindasy from the D&AD was there earlier in October…..

They work hard, and play hard, the banter was described as merciless so you'll need to be able to hold your own on that front too….!
