CAREERS

Creative Director – Sydney

We need a one-of-a-kind creative director to join our burgeoning office in Sydney. We’re looking for a creative director that may not even think of themselves in that way. Thinking outside the box is old school. We want somebody who doesn’t even know what the box is. They think, imagine and craft ideas that belong in the stratosphere and are looking for a team of like-minded, talented people who can help make their visions into reality. 

If you are just as comfortable directing a wide screen content piece as crafting an immersive interactive installation, then come and join us.

Who you’ll be working with

Spinifex Group is a multidisciplinary experiential content studio. Our in-house expertise provides a unique offering to our clients, giving us a prime position in the marketplace. Our diverse workload includes providing audio-visual content and experiential media for events, branding and design, and corporate communications.

We are best known for our bold and adventurous projects, consisting of world class motion and design, delivered through some of the most cutting-edge technology. With an excellent global reputation, our projects are varied and require open, innovative and creative thinking, especially because our work finds itself on some of the world’s largest screens and most challenging formats: mixed Reality, immersive dome projections, architectural projection mapping, experimental artistic installations and experience centres.
