‘Hello, is it you we’re looking for?’

We are looking for a Strategic Creative to join our busy team in Ballina, with a focus on conceptual branding and design.

We want someone that wants to be part of something special. We want someone who is real and straightforward, capable of producing and presenting brave ideas. We want someone to challenge the status quo and someone to challenge us at Ping Pong on a Friday afternoon.

You will work closely with the strategic team to understand our clients and their brands, interrogating their briefs and shaping bold and creative solutions.

You understand the power of branding and great copy and you will oversee the creative output of the agency, mentoring the creative team.

We’re not looking for a graphic designer, or an illustrator, or a copywriter, we’re looking for the whole shebang.

You might already live close by, or looking to move to the beautiful Northern Rivers. You may be looking for full time, or for some on-going part time or freelance work. Whatever you are looking for, we want someone who is in this with us for the long term, to be part of our future.
