Contact creative directors
Creative Directors see countless creatives passing by them. Let them know that you're on the lookout for someone and many will happily keep an eye out for you. Plus, due to their experience working in and with teams, they might end up pairing you with the most suitable partner and you'll form some sort of super team (kind of like a Simon Cowell and One Direction thing... except you wouldn't suck).
We've always got our ear to the ground so if you drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll let you know if we hear of anyone else who's looking for a teammate.
