Design Director - Manchester design agency
Design Director, consumer and fmcg brands - we're so excited to be working with this Manchester-based brand & design agency making waves amongst the big boys! This has gone from a small start-up a few years ago, to a scalable, profitable business with an enviable portfolio of clients in consumer and fmcg. They are simply marching on ahead, and loving it!
Branding, identity, packaging design, brand communications, digital, advertising, POS, activation and consumer experience are all in a days work. Integrated consumer brand design.
As their new Design Director, you'll already be an expert in refreshing established brands for growth and successfully bringing new brands to life. It's highly likely you'll have worked for a respected agency in London or elsewhere in the world and you'll be able to lead and mentor this young, dynamic team, make an impact on them and their clients. As a Design Director you will also be able to nurture client relationships and become true partners with them. And work closely with the Client Services Director, Strategy Director and the MD.
This agency has got oomf, passion, thought and creativity in spades and aren't afraid to shout about it. Very tasteful studios too, you'll be a big cog in a small wheel, most of them have worked in global branding agencies beforehand, but here you get to work with world class consumer and fmcg brands, but also have a better lifestyle, isn't that the point!
| Design Director in a design, brand or packaging agency but consumer & fmcg brand experience is vital
| Natural leadership and mentoring qualities a must
| Ability to bring a brand to life beyond packaging design
| Farming business opportunities from your clients
| Strong hands-on design skills
As Design Director, you'll help them to continue their growth, further developing their own brand, helping on their outbound marketing to drive new business forward. And build on your existing team around you.
They would see you as becoming their Creative Director and will nurture and empower you to achieve this as early as is possible so the scope for development and success is huge!
What's not to love - please apply if you feel you answer most of these questions and have consumer & fmcg brand design experience. Thanks.
