Creative Director at Gabriele SkeltonIndependent agency group seeks consumer branding/packaging and "beyond the pack" creative director from London to move out and help them steal a march on some of the bigger New York agencies!
Established by a Brit, the agency has small offices in several US locations as well as one in London, they work with some pretty amazing US consumer brand owners in NY, they have all the core branding experience, and packaging of course, but they also have a niche in taking those brands into the wider world too, so their input doesn't stop with the packaging on-shelf.
What they do is exciting - and something few have managed thus far though many would like to - ie extending their client relationships to become "brand guardians" and to bring a more 360 degree approach to US clients than their competitors.
Clients lie in the consumer branding and leisure world - including fmcg, drinks and hotels/hospitality. And there's a small team of designers to lead in New York - one which will expand somewhat over the next 2 years, but will never be huge. Their strength lies in being smaller and more agile in the way they work with clients.
They will help to organise a visa, and they are offering a profit-related bonus as well as a good basic salary.
So have you worked in the consumer branding/packaging agency world in the UK, and as much as you can, helped those clients to look at a wider brand world too? Do you have an itch to live and work outside the UK? If you have, this could be your chance - and they don't come up often in New York.
Please send us your cv and examples of your consumer branding together with how you've taken those beyond the pack and into a broader brand world!
