Location Rushcutters Bay, Australia
Date Posted August 16, 2021

Job Type Full-time


We build hospitality, lifestyle and entertainment brands, campaigns and experiences that lead culture.

Now in our fifth year, Example have created unique brand, PR and communications campaigns that market themselves for clients including Diageo, Merivale, Grill’d, Koko Black, The Star, Brewdog and Peru Tourism to name a few. We hold court in any medium where people are connecting and talking - in experiential, placemaking, PR, social, influencers, and the creator economy. 

And we’re just getting started. We’re expanding our offering to create the Example World creator community, and Example Labs incubator for business opportunities from influencer brands. 

We’re looking for a conceptual Art Director with design skills to create some killer communications campaigns, plus guide look and feel across all our clients, on a full-time basis. 

Conceptually, you’re interested in campaigns that are rebellious, subversive, bold and compelling. You want to create progressive work that is part of pop culture, and create a dialogue with consumers or influence opinion. You get that everything - from music clips to water-filled sneakers - is a channel, and want to make ideas that generate their own headlines, attention, and reshares on TikTok. (And maybe you feel that advertising agencies are a bit too traditional and constrained to do this.)

Example is where you can make work that’s different. 

What you’ll be doing

Working alongside a copywriter, and reporting to the Creative Director and Chief Creative Officer, you’ll be responsible for creating campaigns from concept through to execution, across all our clients and brands, in a fast-paced environment. 

  • Concept, develop and execute campaign ideas
    • Ideate insightful, bold and culturally progressive campaigns, stunts, social posts and placemaking concepts that drive earned reach and engagement, using feedback from the team to hone your ideas, reviewing closely with the Creative Director to make them a reality
    • Sell in ideas through presentation decks and idea boards, presenting them to clients
  • Lead and be the guardian of our clients’ brand look and feel
    • Continually push and elevate the visual aesthetic of all our work to remain culturally relevant and cutting edge
    • Follow style guidelines and create new guides, under the guidance of our creative director
    • Lead the aesthetic of Example House and Example World
    • Work closely with the Creative Producer and third party suppliers including talent, photographers and directors to oversee execution of all creative assets
  • Design visual elements for the agency and clients
    • Design and execute materials from proposal presentations, to concept boards, campaign material, key assets, event collateral, media kits and social media assets 

What you’ll bring

  • A killer eye, and an on-trend understanding of design, current cultural movements, styles of content and new platforms. 
  • Strong conceptual thinking with an inherent understanding of viral and earned/shareable ideas, demonstrated in a portfolio of conceptual work.
  • 3-5 years agency (or similar) experience in a conceptual role.
  • Excellent skills in Adobe CS including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign on a Mac OSX platform.
  • A high level of attention to detail.

Teams that fit the criteria matching our Copywriter role are encouraged to apply. 

What we’ll bring

  • Competitive salary, with a target bonus and impressive benefits package
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Wellness programs like yoga, Employee Assistance Programs and other initiatives
  • Paid training, tuition and mentoring programs to support your development

We take great pride in our company culture, and love working in a dynamic, ambitious and fun work environment. We see our success and growth as a partnership and believe that people thrive on trust, freedom and responsibility. We work collaboratively, share openly, don’t believe in long working hours, and know that taking a break or working from home can lead to better work.
