We love helping people, brands, and organizations thrive in the real-world. Unlocking a brand's full potential in the wild is our thing. While we each come from different experiences, backgrounds, and places, we are all insightful, strategic, and creative in unique ways. It's what makes building our teams so fascinating and fun.
Finch Brands, a real-world brand consultancy, is seeking a Creative Director with a strong foundation in copywriting and design to manage a diverse workflow of client engagements that span insights, brand strategy, and design as well as a range of industries.
This role is client-facing and serves as the senior point of contact on complex, multi-faceted branding engagements. Overall, this leader must have a high comfort working with insights and strategic direction to solve brand and business questions through captivating writing and visual concepting. Responsibilities include collaborating with the Strategy team to execute insight-driven brand strategy components (personas, messaging, positioning, purpose, mission, values, brand architecture, product service offerings, innovation, etc.) and overseeing a team of designers who execute concepts (visual identity, brand collateral, advertising, etc.).
This role is ultimately responsible for the output of our Design team, the satisfaction of our clients, and the opportunities our excellence creates.
Finch Brands is a real-world brand consultancy. We exist to help brands win when it matters most. We blend deep curiosity, a real-world mindset, and a uniquely collaborative workstyle to champion purposeful change for client brands and businesses.
Founded in 1998 by the pioneering minds instrumental in the ascent of David’s Bridal and IKEA, the Finch Brands team has extensive experience building, running and growing successful brands. Along with years of agency service, this includes important tenures at Campbell Soup, Kimberly-Clark, MARS, Target, Subway, and more.
Finch Brands clients include brands such as Comcast, Boston Beer, Gap, Procter & Gamble, and Jack Daniel’s. Proud generalists, we work across consumer/B2B/non-profit sectors.
At Finch Brands, we are champions of purposeful change:
Built for Change:
We are the most consequential partner our clients will ever engage. And we’re especially valuable at junctures of great opportunity – such as M&A, rebranding, innovation, new levels of customer connection, etc.
We are deeply focused on outcomes – and we bring a high ‘get it’ factor to work every day. Many of our senior leaders ‘grew up’ in operating roles at brand-driven companies and all of us, no matter background or function, simply love helping to progress brands and businesses.
We believe process is just as important as content. Building strong, mutually respectful relationships with key stakeholders ensures we benefit from internal input while building the trust required to champion purposeful change – both inside and out.
Fueled by Insights:
No matter the destination, it is a core set of facts that lights the way for the journey. Always curious, we use data for illumination – to guide the work that follows.
Great to work with:
We are flexible, high touch, and high impact – focused on long-term relationships and providing wise counsel. As the boutique answer to the big shops, we’re broad-shouldered yet intentionally intimate. There is no B Team at Finch Brands.
