Yokoy is growing, and so is our in-house agency. We are seeking a gifted Creative Director to join our marketing team. As a Creative Director, you transform a brief into a captivating idea for our brand and marketing communications. You’ll do this by conceptualising and working together with the entire marketing team to ensure the best outcome.
To succeed, you worked in advertising or in a creative agency and bring a solid knowledge of campaign production, design and development as well as branding. We are a product-driven company and our product is the key factor for our and our client's success. Educating and inspiring our audience through captivating ideas is crucial for our continuous growth. Therefore, our Creative Director understands that advertising is a collaborative process and unites and inspires with the power of their ideas.

What you'll do

    • Responsible for developing concepts for different marketing projects, illustrating your idea through mood boards, presentations, videos and imagery.
    • Responsible for setting the tone of voice for Yokoy, in campaigns and other marketing collaterals.
    • Lead brainstorming/creative sessions to generate ideas to bring to life
    • Create visual design concepts for campaigns, website, content and sales material, based on Yokoy’s visual identity
    • Write and design unique and well-crafted copy that resonates with our target audience, both rationally but also emotionally.

    • Work closely with the rest of the creative team to ensure brand consistency and quality throughout all deliverables.
    • Conceive and implement concepts, guidelines and strategies in various creative projects and oversee them to completion
    • Collaborate with internal and external copywriters and designers to transform an idea into media assets.
    • For bigger video- and photo shoots you’ll work together with external agencies and for smaller productions with our internal team.

What you'll bring

    • Working in a scale-up means constantly challenging yourself. You are passionate about personal challenges because you appreciate the steep learning curve that you can grow. You like to look for situations that take you out of your comfort zone and enjoy working within your own scope of responsibilities, embedded in a team.
    • Bachelor in advertising, fine art, design or relevant field
    • Proven experience as an art director or in a similar creative role
    • Hand-on experience in the creative process, marketing, graphic design and brand development
    • Excellent working knowledge of Adobe creative cloud and Figma
    • Portfolio of creative projects showcasing your skills and experience
    • Outstanding leadership and organisational skills
    • Exemplary interpersonal and analytical abilities
    • Confidently sell in your ideas and vision to others, including stakeholders within the company.
    • English language skills. Additional languages are considered a plus.

What you'll get

    • We love to see people thrive! You'll have the resources to own and be able to shape things from day one
    • Work closely with the founders and the leadership team
    • We’re fast - quickly measure and learn the impact of your work
    • Grow - we’re growing fast, and you’re the expert. Help us shape our growth!
    • Flexibility - everyone has their own highly productive times - you have found your sweet spot? Perfect, we look at the output and not at what time it was produced
    • Remote - we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
    • Competitive scale-up package
