Job Overview

Who we are

We build brands; from the conceptual and strategic development that guides the formation of them, right through to words and design consumers experience.

We work across a variety of industries, however our niche is with DTC and challenger brands: those that want to do something different and walk their talk.

Over the past 10 years we’ve named a financial broker after an animal and a nut company after a river, we’ve turned coffee grinds into a multi-million dollar business and helped charities raise millions of dollars. We share an open plan, plant-filled office with our pals; frank body and frame. And we enjoy culture club activities like training, drawing and and drinking. 

We live by one rule; the only thing scarier than a new idea is an old one.  


What you’ll be doing

Asking how can we make this better? Again, and again. Until our work is the best it can be.  

Translation: you’ll lead and mentor a team of writers and designers to create brands with longevity, campaigns with spice and content that makes people chuckle into their morning coffee. 

Your primary role is to review, edit and guide the team through the brand creation process. You’ll closely oversee each aspect from client workshops through to strategy and creative execution. But you’ll also be motivated to deliver your own progressive concepts. 

We’re looking for someone who has management experience but misses being on the tools.

This role will cover everything from brand strategy and tone of voice development to brand identity and advertising roll out.


What you bring to the table

-You have at least 10 years of experience covering brand strategy, copywriting, campaign creation, naming, design, marketing and social media.

-You have the ability to think through complex problems in a creative and strategic way.

– A great communication style and ability to give constrictive feedback to both team members and clients. 

-More talent. Less ego. You walk your talk and know the difference between showing and telling.

-Your career highlights include successful branding projects for companies both small and large. As well as communication and marketing campaigns that have driven brand awareness, increased market share and fueled revenue and business growth.

-This role requires strategy, copywriting and design experience.  

-Bonus points if you have worked as part of a creative team at a creative agency
