Head of Creative (UK)
We are EventsTag, a rapidly growing start-up: passionate about connecting brands and customers through original, innovative and irresistibly shareable social media content, powered by our own advanced experiential tech platform.
Just six years into our adventure, we have earned a sizeable portfolio, delivering engaging live experiences and customisable social media memorabilia - with huge amplification opportunity - to some of the biggest brands in the worlds including Nike, Google, Spotify, Adidas, O2, Yves Saint Laurent, eBay and more. The list goes on. And we want it to go even further which is why we we are looking to expand our talented team with the addition of a brand new role - Head of Creative - to work any of our global offices or even remotely.
Our new Head of Creative will bring passion, energy and ideas in their role in responding to client briefs with creative concepts for using our technology at brand activations, coming up with new ways to create and capture live experiences for visitors, designing pitch decks and production creative, managing creative for marketing materials and going to activations to ensure creative meets expectations. These briefs will typically come from experiential marketing agencies, frequently representing global entertainment and lifestyle-focused brands.
Previously delivered concepts include inspiring influencer content for Adidas; sending instagram-powered physical postcards for Google at their Silicon Valley headquarters; powering tweets onto the roof of London’s vast O2; creating 360 GIFs for Microsoft and, most recently, collaborating with Beats by Dr Dre to enable football fans to emulate campaign imagery of Harry Kane and Mezit Ozil to celebrate the 2018 World Cup.
