We are a well established independent creative agency, focusing on the beauty and fashion sectors. We have a strong roster of international clients such as the L’Oreal Group, the Henkel Group and Philips. As a team we work very closely with our clients, and pride ourselves on our sense of ownership and creative freedom for each and every project. Our own internal production facilities make working on integrated campaigns, alongside diverse, dedicated and highly skilled colleagues, a natural process. We consider ourselves a Chinese agency, with an international attitude and outlook. As well as projects for China, we work across the APAC region and globally, so we foster a broad mindset. In addition to our head office in Shanghai, we have recently opened new offices in London and Milan. It is an exciting time to join teehee.

We are looking for a Senior Art Director to join our team in Shanghai. As one of the most senior creatives in the company you will feel just as comfortable developing great conceptual narrative as you are at creating beautiful and exciting visuals. As a natural leader, you inspire your team members, giving effective creative direction across a range of projects. You can present your work and ideas both internally and externally and are able to bring concepts to life.
A great, and broad-based, visual sense is also essential: from key visuals and photography to fonts. Confidence and experience with short-form copywriting and an aptitude in communicating conceptual development, as verbal presentation and written proposal development, is highly appreciated; as is confidence in your ideas and approach - alongside an ability to work with a team and incorporate others' ideas.
An international outlook and aesthetic is important; having spent time living and working outside of Mainland China would be a real advantage. Above all else - enthusiasm for your work, a love of what you do, and a real desire to grow within a dynamic company structure.
You will collaborate with copywriters, accounts and other stakeholders to develop effective and beautiful creatives for teehee and our clients.
You will lead a small team of visual creative designers ensuring that you nurture their skills, create a happy work environment and get the very best out of them.
You will contribute to play a leading role in creative ideation sessions, discussions and reviews.
As a hands on creative you will also execute design and visual work - including branding, packaging, layout and creative design - confidently, efficiently and to the highest standards.
You take a leading role in reviewing, revising, and approving creative output.
You will lead other special projects as assigned.
