As the classic ad saying goes, “Nobody ever bored anyone into buying anything.” And we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we don’t just ‘do ads’. We focus on building our clients’ long-term brand and financial equity.
We see creativity as a powerful business tool for our clients – one of the last legal means of gaining an unfair advantage over competitors. We live this creative philosophy for all of our clients.
We work hard to stay small, which means we are deliberately low on bureaucracy and deliberately high on collaboration, with a passion for solving complex problems, strategically and creatively.
We have one of the strongest advertising and branding teams in Canada. And not accidentally, they include some of the nicest people you’re likely going to find anywhere. They care about each other and about the work. And here at the most easterly point in North America, in one of the most creative places in Canada, we take that to heart.
If this sounds like the kind of place you’d like to work, we’d love for you to drop us a line at email@example.com and say hello. If something comes up that’s a fit, we’ll be in touch.
Creatives Wanted for Canada’s Small Agency of the Year.
Target, Canada’s Small Agency of the Year, is looking for Creatives. Senior Art Directors, established Designers, and seasoned Creative Directors — we’re talking to you.
We’re looking for people who love making their Moms proud, just as much as they love making incredible ideas come to life and winning shiny trophies. Something we have plenty of, by the way, London International Awards to Gold Lions. In fact, we’re just one of 16 agencies in Canada to win a Gold Lion.
Uniquely positioned in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador — widely known as the most creative city in Canada — we proudly consider ourselves outsiders from typical ad agencies. Being independently owned and operated, we’re about as far from a multinational and bureaucracy as you can get. We’re a tight family of strategists, writers, designers, producers, innovators, planners, and creative problem solvers. We strongly believe that creative is not a department on a business card – it’s a way of seeing the world.
So, if you’d like to see the world our way, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to chat.
Senior Art Director needed for Canada’s Small Agency of The Year
Not just any Senior Art Director, though. We’re looking for a great human being equipped with the talent and insight to wow our clients, while at the same time keep us winning all those big shiny awards. After all, we all want to make our moms proud, don’t we?
The best part is that you’ll be working in one of North America’s most creative cities — St. John’s is an off-kilter place, bursting with writers, storytellers, musicians, and artists of all stripes. There are worse ways to spend your workday than inside a restored heritage building, mere steps from historic St. John’s harbour.
Target, now entering its 40th year, is a proudly independent creative ad agency, and is perhaps best known for its brand and advertising campaigns for Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism. Since 2005, Find Yourself has become widely recognized as the most successful and most awarded tourism and destination marketing campaign in North America.
So, what do you say, want to come help us win Small Agency of The Year in 2020?
(Act now, and we’ll throw in your very own time zone.)
If you’re interested, drop us a line at email@example.com.
The world needs great design.
And Canada’s Best Small Agency needs a great Designer.
Great design is about seeing the world better than it already is – not about having decades of experience. We believe that great design can happen anywhere, particularly in an inspiring place like St. John’s at one of Canada’s oldest independent agencies. We’re looking for a craftsperson in branding, design, and packaging, with a passion for design application across a full range of brand touchpoints. Someone with a nimble conceptual mind, and hands-on ability to lead big ideas through to production.
Technically, we’re looking for a Designer with a degree from a post-secondary institution who has a deep understanding of typography, illustration, photography, and culture. Someone who is collaborative and detail-oriented, with strong conceptual and organizational skills. And bonus points for having a portfolio that makes your mom proud, awards or industry accolades, and above-average cornhole skills.
If this sounds like you, and you’d love to help us become the Canada’s Best Small Agency again in 2020, drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Target is looking for a graphic designer with a strong multimedia skillset and an eye for designing and editing engaging, shareable video content for a variety of mediums: social, broadcast, and agency ‘case study’ videos. If you are inspired by using video, graphics, motion graphics, sound, animation, and other effects to create the best award-winning visual piece, join Canada’s Small Agency of the Year to make your mark.
What’s in it for you? A competitive salary with ample opportunities to create industry-leading online and offline experiences. And plenty of perks. Like education opportunities to help refine your craft. A fitness allowance to help keep your work-life balance, well, balanced. You’ll also be given the chance to have your work recognized internationally at award shows like The Webbys, Applied Arts, Communication Arts, or Cannes. Did we mention the beer fridge? It’s well stocked.
You’ll be rubbing elbows with our talented creative, digital, and design teams, bouncing smart awe-inspiring ideas off each other and helping to create a best-in-class visual experience for us and our clients.
Truth to be told, we’ve been at this for a while. So, our philosophy is simple: Hire the best people. Select the best clients. Do the best work.
If this sounds like you, drop us a line at email@example.com.
Lion Tamer Wanted
So, we’ve got a few Lions around the office. And we’re looking for a Strategic Planner who’ll help us add to the collection. If you’re a really smart, really nice person who’s an ace at primary and secondary research, and capable of helping our creative department turn your insights into more Lion-taming ideas, you’re the person Canada’s Small Agency of the Year is looking for.
Target, now entering its 40th year, is one of Canada’s oldest independent agencies, and is constantly punching well above its weight when it comes to winning awards for creativity and advertising effectiveness.
Located in its waterfront heritage building, on the oldest street in the oldest city in North America, Target is closer to Dublin than Detroit. We’re located far from the expected or the norms of Adland. Target is outside of the box, literally. This unexpected place gives us a unique perspective on how to size-up a problem, and how to create unexpected solutions for our clients. No cookie-cutter ideas from Target.
So, if you are the kind of person who can’t help but see things differently, or have a unique problem-solving perspective that leads to thinking 180º different from the usual, we’d love to chat.
Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
