Creative director
Stubborn gatekeeper
It’s a jungle out there… And in here it isn’t much different. Producers are chasing you and deadlines are lurking in the bushes to eat you alive! But don’t worry. Hippos are chunky, but surprisingly fast and strong-willed. Here at Hippo we create content in all shapes and sizes, for any digital platform. TV commercials, photography, 3D animation, AR, VR and beyond. We bust our tails for international brands as well as creative agencies. And make sure we all have fun along the way.

 

Currently we are on the lookout for an energetic, creative director with a wicked sense of humor. You are a born leader capable of guiding and inspiring our herd of creatives through the treacherous jungle on a day-to day basis.

You will be in charge off, but also work together with the team to create jaw-dropping visual content. For this, it is vital to know how they work. A film and photography studio feels like your natural habitat. Your treatments and direction are tight as a drum. To help your fellow Hippos making the magic happen.

With strong pitching and presentation skills, you can represent us by showcasing our credentials, capabilities, culture and working model to clients and agencies. During shoots you are our guardian of all concepts and ideas making sure the results exceed both your and our client’s expectations.
