This is the most senior ‘hands on’ creative role at Wolff Olins. Your primary job is to lead and be responsible for the creative success of medium-sized to large projects – often more than one at the same time. You’ll be responsible for leading a design team, and you should be brilliant at inspiring and organizing them. You’ll be expected to inspire complete confidence in clients – so you’ll need to see the bigger strategic picture, fully understand client’s worlds and be persuasive and authoritative. You’ll be expected to make big creative calls on behalf of the client and Wolff Olins, so your judgment and decision-making skills should be excellent. You should be a great planner who constantly thinks ahead about the needs of the team, the account and the client – able to prioritize, delegate and understand resourcing needs. You can come from any design background, but you must be 100% credible as a leader in our core discipline of graphic design. Multi-disciplinary and digital experience is favorable, 6+ years of creative experience preferred.
