Calling all Creative Directors in the branding space...
This fantstic agency set up in 2012 have carved an excellent name for themselves in the South West. Based in beautiful Bristol, their team of 25 creative minds produce jaw dropping concepts for exciting brands in both the B2B and B2C worlds.
This would suit someone potentially looking to make that leap from Design Director, to a role which has more responsibility and scope for creative ownership. They're looking for a heavyweight creative champion who's prepared to go through the rounds with clients, by showing them the limitless potentail of where great creative can take them, but also being comfortable and prepared to get stuck in from a hands-on perspective.

I can't stress enough how important the brand element of your porfolio is and the abilty/willingness to be hands-on, this isn't a role for someone straight out of an ad agency who's used to having designers bringing work to life and demonstratable campaign work is also paramount.
