With the packaging department at LOVE. flourishing after more global brand appointments and Pentaward wins, we need a skilful Creative Director to head up the wider design team.  

We’re after a world-class creative to own the responsibility for the agency’s packaging output, leading the team in the creation of simple, effective, surprising and empathetic work.

LOVE. does a bit of everything; brand design, experiential and environmental design, packaging, graphic design and advertising.

So, southern-dwellers. You’ve been thinking about owning a house not renting a flat, of being in the country in 30 minutes not 2 hours, but you don’t want to compromise your career by moving north. This one’s for you.

Northern-dwellers, what are you waiting for?


A hands-on visionary packaging creative, looking for that next step in their career.

You’ll have experience in premium and luxury packaging accounts, with a portfolio that demonstrates work you’ve done for global brands, challenger brands and agile independents.

A leader with a proven track record in building lasting client relationships with senior stakeholders at global brands, with the ability to help grow accounts across multiple territories.

You’ll be a key member of the agency, reporting to both the Executive Creative Director and Senior Creative Director, supporting the team through strong leadership, strategic thinking and the highest creative standards.


  • An entrepreneurial spirit with an appetite for exploring new and undiscovered opportunities within packaging and beyond
  • The confidence to convince senior clients that rebranded packaging can stretch across advertising and brand worlds
  • Experience in overseeing packaging and product design in market
  • To lead client workshops in packaging design, showing how innovations can transform brands of all sizes
  • To identify new trends and insights for key accounts
  • To optimise agency structures, recruiting, managing and developing talent as well as developing client relations
  • To have charisma, confidence and bags of knowledge, minus the ego
  • 12+ years’ experience

Show us what you’ve got, and tell us a bit about yourself
