Associate Creative Director (ACD)
Art or Copy Based
Relay is looking for an ACD to join their newly-opened Shanghai office. The ACD will work closely with our Creative Director
and will be responsible of coming up with creative proposals for New Business pitches and also oversee projects in our
production pipeline, following them from concept creation to final delivery.
Key skills required for this position are as follows:
Proven Video Experience.
• We are a creative production agency that specializes in creating stunning pieces of video content, both for innovative
startup businesses and larger disruptive brands. Our ideal ACD has experience in video production, branded content and
a strong sense of art direction – we are particularly interested in candidates who have proven experience with generating
ideas for moving image, including both live action and animation, as well as experience overseeing the production and
development of them. Knowledge and experience of Adobe software (mainly Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects) is a plus.
Creative Solutions for New Business.
• We’re looking to hire a person who can make sure all our projects hit a very high aesthetic and/or storytelling standard.
We need someone who can tell a develop, frame and ‘sell in’ a great idea or concept – someone who can tell stories and
get clients truly on board and excited about your creative ideas. The ACD will be splitting their time between ongoing
projects and New Business, and as such, we’d like to find someone who is an expert at creating pitch decks, concept art,
storyboards and other pitch materials. After the job’s won, we’ll then need you to participate in the creative and production
process – leading PPM meetings, participating in shoots, and guiding post production from a creative vantage point.
Communication Skills & Local Understanding.
• We’re looking to hire an individual who can confidently communicate in both Mandarin Chinese and English – in both written
and spoken forms. This person can not only communicate in both languages, but can confidently transmit ideas and concepts
back and forth as well. In addition to that, our ideal ACD candidate has a very deep understanding of the local culture
and insights over creativity catered to them. We’re looking for someone with a deep understanding of East Asian culture,
either because they were born or raised in it or have spent a considerable amount of years in Asia.
