Every company needs great Design, Innovation and Creative leaders.
We can help.
We specialize in design, innovation and creative talent, and understand the unique nature of the positions from hands on industry experience. Starting with our expansive global network and unique IP, we engage sophisticated research and analysis methods to deliver perfect-fit candidates for our clients.
Strategic creative recruiting
The bottom line: If you want your company to be more innovative, then you need to invest in the right people. As creative thought leaders and successful recruiters, we help our clients find the best creative talent. Whether it is locating chief innovation officers, creative directors, design directors, branding experts, new product development leaders, design managers and senior designers or the heads of user experience, our know-how is first hand.
Drawing on our personal connections and business relationships, our network is second to none, and our IP is unique. Although our clients are generally domestic headquarters, our network spans the world.
Deep category knowledge
In former roles Lockwood has led internal design organizations, external design agencies, and the international non-profit association DMI, the Design Management Institute. We understand the people, the work, and the unique challenges first hand, by direct experience.
We bring insight, innovation, and objectivity to the table, and without baggage. Because we keep our client list very small, we have a wide open talent pool to draw upon for our clients. Running design and innovation departments ourselves enables our unique combination of authenticity and empathy.
Although we are inspired to help everyone find meaningful creative work, as a retained firm we represent our clients who are looking for talent, not individuals who are looking for jobs.
We call our work Informed Recruiting™ and limit the number of searches we conduct to ensure that our clients receive the attention and the results they deserve. We personally manage and execute every search, and working on a retained basis ensures that appropriate resources are committed to each project.
