Design Director: Hot Creative Agency – Durban


We have a simply marvellous opportunity for a Design Director at a leading through-the-line ad agency in Durban. The successful candidate will join a close-knit, in-house Design studio team to lead a small team of creatives and oversee a small team of Designers (pure Design, Craft and Packaging Designers). We’re looking for someone rather pedantic when it comes to crafting beautiful high-end work (and driving the team to do the same); someone great with CI and illustration skills. If you want to join the team at this stunning agency that boasts a very supportive environment, you’ll need to have received reputable Design accolades and awards. You’ll need to be someone who is keen to stretch themselves and their team to greatness. Not in Durban? No problem – the agency will assist with your relocation. Don’t have Director/Group Head experience? Show us that you have what it takes to step up into the role and you’ll be given management assistance and support. Seriously fabulous opportunity, not to be missed!



The successful candidate must have/be:

  • 3 -4 year Visual Communication Degree/Diploma from a recognised tertiary institution
  • Minimum 8 years’ experience in a leadership role
  • Real craftsmanship
  • Awarded – Design accolades are a must
  • Excellent with clients
  • Enthusiastic
  • Hardworking
  • Hands on
  • A good leader/mentor


Please submit a link to your portfolio (or PDF) on application.

Should you not receive a response within two weeks (10 days), please consider your application unsuccessful.

Only applications from South African nationals/work-permit holders will be considered.
