Host/Havas is looking for a Junior Art Director to join our creative department. You’ll be teaming up with a gun Junior Writer to form a talented and ambitious junior team packed with potential and all set to capitalise on some awesome opportunities.
To give you some context, Host and Havas came together earlier this year to create a dynamic, modern agency with big ideas, clever thinking and digital smarts at its heart. It’s a case of 1+1=3 as we’ve combined creative firepower, resources and accounts to set ourselves up as a major player in the region.
We’re looking for an excellent lateral thinker with natural creative flair, who has the ability to conceptualise and execute outstanding creative ideas, along with a solid understanding of all media channels, particularly digital.
You will be responsible for contributing to the creative excellence of the agency, developing and producing creative concepts from brand campaigns to integrated projects with digital at their heart to quick-turnaround retail ads. It’s worth noting that ‘creative excellence’ isn’t a term we throw around lightly: we’re super ambitious to do really outstanding, world class work – work that gets talked about, wins awards locally and globally, and makes our clients (and us!) famous.
In terms of reporting structure, we have a CCO, who sits across the whole creative department, but you’ll usually be working into our 3 ECDs - with the exact ECD dependent on the project and client. As part of the team you form with our copywriter, we’ll be looking for you to serious make a mark and become a really hot young team capable of cracking smart, talkable ideas on all kinds of briefs. To keep things fresh, we’ll also be looking to team you with different partners occasionally or to give you solo projects, too.
You will probably have around 3 years’ experience in an agency environment, a solid understanding of creative development processes including conceptual development, digital, print, TV and radio production, and will have skills in Illustrator and Photoshop. More importantly, you’ll have a book that excites and inspires us.
The pride we have in our work goes hand in hand with a culture that’s passionate, vibrant and bloody good fun. We’re a diverse bunch who recognise the importance of being respectful to one another, and sharing a common goal – to be the best agency you’ll ever work at.
