Graphic Designer at Blaze

We are Blaze and we create innovation for urban cycling. Our flagship product, the Laserlight, is a front bike light with a laser projecting a bike symbol onto the road ahead of the rider. It enables cyclists to be seen in the 'blind spot' and keeps them safer on the road. We started on Kickstarter and now ship to over 60 countries. More recently we have integrated our lights into Citi Bike in New York and all of the Santander Cycles in London, all of whom recognise us as the key to providing safe and smart urban cycling now, and in the future.

Blaze is a team of 12 based in Shoreditch, London. We care about each other, have our own office with our own workshop, and thrive on collaboration. We are all passionate about cities and urban cycling. Over the next year, we are looking to expand the team, so it is an exciting time to be joining the company.

We are looking for a Graphic Designer. As a team, we appreciate the value of design as an essential contributor to our brand, and to the world. After historically collaborating with some excellent freelancers, we are now looking to incorporate a graphic designer into our permanent, in-house team. You directly will impact the strengthening and consolidation of our visual identity.

You'll be part of our Brand department working alongside our Head of Brand in a relaxed, creative and encouraging atmosphere. You'll be contributing to solidifying Blaze's visual expression, focusing on our brand communications and collateral design, including print, editorial, digital, packaging, POS, window display, events, as well as art direction for photography and film. We are here to help you create innovative and inspiring work. You'll be joining a place where your work is encouraged and celebrated, contributing to positive change in the world at one of London’s most exciting startups.

About you:
- A strong eye for design, layout, typography and detail
- Minimalistic, sleek, contemporary design approach
- Art direction skills for photography and film
- Superb organisation and communication skills

Compensation details:
- Permanent position
- Competitive salary
- EMI share scheme/company pension
