There’s something more than a bit special happening at this agency. They might not be a household name just yet but experience tells me that’s not far around the corner!
Working with some of the biggest brands in the world, they’re delivering the sort of work you’d be expecting from the likes of Pentagram or Interbrand. They’re doing all this from a converted Mill in Huddersfield. And there’s still only six of them!
I’ve known one of the founders for several years – he’s easily one of the most talented designers I’ve ever worked with – so to see what’s bubbling up under his (and his business partners’) guidance is incredibly exciting for me. Now it’s your chance to get in on the action too!
So then, what do you need?
Guts, enthusiasm, bravery, stick-with-it-ness, pragmatism (in spades) and a desire to produce work that really ‘works’ are the personality traits you’ll need. Shiny trophies and statuettes will almost certainly come but it’s the commercial impact of the work that’s the true measure of success – that’s what’s set them on this path and that’ll be what they’ll continue to make their focus.
Some knowledge and understanding of what it takes to deliver world class brand assets, the challenges of doing that across territories, the subtleties of multi-platform communications and an ability to cut through the noise are all highly desirable too. You’ll have probably gotten that via a few years at a leading edge brand consultancy but if not – and you can demonstrate it – I’d love to be proven wrong.
Icing on the cake would be specific experience within FMCG branding. If you’ve got this, as well as everything else we’ve talked about, then we might possibly have found the defining role or your career! Gulp!
