Host/Havas is looking for a Junior Art Director to join our creative department. Youâll 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. Itâs a case of 1+1=3 as weâve combined creative firepower, resources and accounts to set ourselves up as a major player in the region.
Weâre 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. Itâs worth noting that âcreative excellenceâ isnât a term we throw around lightly: weâre super ambitious to do really outstanding, world class work â 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 youâll 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, weâll 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, weâll also be looking to team you with different partners occasionally or to give you solo projects, too.
You will probably have around 3 yearsâ 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, youâll have a book that excites and inspires us.
The pride we have in our work goes hand in hand with a culture thatâs passionate, vibrant and bloody good fun. Weâre a diverse bunch who recognise the importance of being respectful to one another, and sharing a common goal â to be the best agency youâll ever work at.
