Work with the authority.

MID-WEIGHT CREATIVE (ART DIRECTOR)

Full-time, Melbourne 

  • 3-5 years of experience working in an agency
  • Big idea generator
  • Proven experience in campaign development and execution – from concept to delivery

We’re on the hunt for a creative that’s great with art direction. So, if you can visualise yourself working at Gemba, then let’s bring that idea – and all the others you’ve got – to life.

 

Here’s a snapshot of what Gemba looks like for you.


You’ll get the opportunity to work on every juicy brief that comes through the department. You’ll generate, present and execute ideas, lead projects, direct shoots, and will have full support from our ECD the entire way. Work here and you’ll grow as a creative and as a person. Plus you’ll get to team up with the unbelievably talented, strikingly handsome and intimidatingly cool creative who definitely didn’t write this ad.

 

Now here’s a snapshot of what you look like to Gemba.


You’re an Art Director and you live and breathe creativity in a fast-moving world of Sport and Entertainment. We’re talking a multi-skilled idea generator, thought leader, boundary pusher, tech enthusiast and social media navigator. For you, it’s not just PS and AI – it’s everything in between.

You’ll have flair, creativity and a curiosity to grow with our dynamic business. You’re motivated enough to get work done solo, and collaborative enough to work in a team. You know how to take constructive feedback and apply it to your work without feelings being hurt. As an experienced Creative with expertise in communications, advertising and/or experiential marketing, you’ll report to and work alongside the Executive Creative Director.

To make this work for all of us, you’ll need to generate truckloads of ideas and deliver quality creative product. You’ll need to be comfortable selling your ideas internally, packaging them up for clients, adapting them across a diverse range of channels, executing them and getting them out the door, all with the help of our small but dedicated production team.
The non-negotiables:

  • 3-5 years of experience working in an agency
  • Big idea generator
  • Proven experience in campaign development and execution – from concept to delivery
  • A track record across multiple channels; social, digital and traditional
  • Skills on Adobe CC; Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and video ability a serious bonus.
  • Great communication skills and ability to work under pressure
  • Strong design and typography skills
  • Great communication skills and ability to work under pressure

TRAFFIC MANAGER

Full-time / Part-time, Melbourne 

  • Collaborate with Blue-Chip clients
  • Project Management
  • Coordinate an industry leading Creative team

 

 

If the feeling of crossing something off your to-do list gets you excited, or if you consider a well produced spreadsheet as art, then this is the job for you. We need a planning pro, a spreadsheet superstar, traffic managing champion.

 

You’ll be working across some of the biggest brands going around, with a serious focus on sport. So bonus points if you’re a sports nut, but it’s ok if you’re not. More importantly, you’ll be the gatekeeper between creative and account management. The organiser of time, the solver of problems, the flow of our work.

 

In short we think this job will be a fit for two types of people.

 

Candidate #1 – An experienced campaigner that’s been there, done that. Someone who’s only looking to work part-time or flexibly and can make an immediate impact

 

Candidate #2 – A full time young gun Studio Traffic Manager that can easily juggle multiple jobs… with their eyes closed, while balancing on a tightrope and being tapped on the shoulder from different angles. You’re enthusiastic and have an unapologetic approach to learn and get things done

 

You’ll support the whole creative team and directly manage two young gun designers who need you to help them make sure we’re meeting deadlines, prioritising work, and ticking off the million and one things they have to do in a day.

 

You will collaborate closely with our Creative Producer (who is an absolute legend) and will also be responsible for shepherding work through the agency, managing workflow, providing estimates and ensuring efficient use of creative and studio resources. We’re talking about events, design, social campaigns, activations, display, print advertising, branding… so pretty much everything.

 

Skills and Experience Required:

 

  • Understanding of creative and production processes and agency internal functions, with experience in process improvement to ensure efficiency
  • Good financial skills and understanding of building estimates and managing projects to budget
  • Proven ability to juggle multiple projects, work well under pressure, manage workflows and meet deadlines in a fast-paced agency environment
  • Ability to build and maintain strong relationships with people at all levels and personalities
  • Excellent organizational and planning skills, with the ability to multi-task
  • At least 3-4 years as a traffic/studio manager ideally within an agency environment

 

If you haven’t Googled us already or stalked our socials, that’s ok. We do a lot of work like an agency, but we don’t work like an agency. No egos, flexible work, career development, industry leading culture, and more. You might be thinking every agency says the same thing, the difference is, we do it. Don’t believe us? Come see for yourself.
