Who we are

Present Company translates insights in order to design new businesses, products, brands and experiences. We do this for clients, partners and across projects we are incubating or developing ourselves.

We value team members that are comfortable with ambiguity and exploration, and who offer provocations to set better contexts to find the brief and shape the thinking for our broader teams.

We are pragmatic, of little ceremony and focussed on creating unforeseen value. We rarely pitch and constantly find ourselves around the ‘frontier’, both in terms of industries and projects.

Our relationships with clients are immersive, long term and based on creating business value and growth.

The role

We are looking for a Design Director that holds customer understanding as critical to their work, and who can lead foundations for projects that span a broad range of what ‘brand’ means. You'll lead the Studio team (and external partners) to execute projects for our clients, spanning across multiple industries, through developing and producing design concepts.

You’ll guide in creation and production, planning and executing initiatives from start to finish with your key collaborators. You'll primarily work across our Advertising, Content and Social briefs with opportunities to cross-collaborate with Brand and Product.

  • Lead the team to execute the best-crafted and high-impact work

  • Attract and recruit the best talents who will raise the bar

  • Provide inspiration, mentorship, support, and direction to multidisciplinary creatives and help them perform at their best and achieve their career goals

  • Build a culture that elevates the team, both performance and morale
