We are Mous.

Mous creates innovative tech accessories designed to enhance everyday experiences. We radically re-imagine what it means to create the best product and brand experience, and engineer products that exceed expectations and solve everyday problems in the most powerful way.

It all started with our LIMITLESS range of phone cases which, to disrupt an over-saturated (and not hugely exciting) market, needed to be superior in functionality, protection and style. We designed numerous cases and tested them relentlessly. We dropped encased phones from 45ft cranes, out of helicopters and even from the stratosphere. From sneaking into the Apple store disguised as press to live-testing our cases in front of crowds, our journey has been anything but traditional.

We are continuing to develop and expand our product range, offering a multitude of cases with numerous accessories. With offices in both London and China, our products are being sold on a global scale, proving that you can enter a saturated market and excel if you put artisanship and consumer solutions at the heart of what you do.

Going from strength to strength, we continue to exceed our customers' expectations of what we create, pushing the limits to ensure we bring the best products to market. It's true to say that there has never been a more exciting time for us.

That’s a little bit about us and here’s some more about what you’ll be doing…

As a Junior Graphic Designer at Mous, you will play an instrumental role in the design, creation and execution of digital design and asset creation for our website. As your role develops, you will have the opportunity to work more autonomously on projects such as E-Mail Marketing design and content for other digital channels. You’ll be confident working within specific design guidelines, buying into our brand and working hard to take it to the next level! Your work will reach our global customer base and will ultimately represent the Mous brand, giving you exposure across digital, packaging and print design. In this exciting opportunity, your core responsibilities will include:

  • Generating unique ideas for new content across multiple platforms
  • Creating digital assets to launch products on our website
  • Creating assets for social media and email marketing including images, GIFS, typography and banners
  • Developing the visual and interactive elements of the Mous website experience, refining the site towards a coherent and innovative design, considering typography, iconography, layout, content and brand identity
  • Involvement in ad-hoc print projects such as new packaging design, retail posters, promotional flyers

Sound good? We hope so. Here's what we’re looking for:

  • You’ll have graduated with a 2:1 degree in a Design-focused discipline; ideally Graphic Design
  • You’ll have at least 2 years’ experience working on commercial digital design projects - editing RAW images and delivering final artworked assets for online platforms
  • Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite but highly skilled in Photoshop and Lightroom
  • You’ll be keen to take ownership of tasks and projects from the start and the prospect of juggling several things at once in an agile environment excites you!
  • Detail-oriented and highly organised
  • Natural self-starter with a real willingness to learn
  • Solid knowledge of digital formats across various screen sizes and devices as well as knowledge of setting up files for print and web use
  • Understanding of UX/UI design and digital design best practice in general
  • Appreciation of brand and its importance within design

You’ve read this far, now let’s see if this works for the both of us.

We are currently operating a strict work-from-home policy but normally, you'll be based at our East London offices at a WeWork, working in modern open plan offices surrounded by young creatives and innovative businesses. With regular on-site activities including yoga, breathwork and cookery classes, you’ll have the opportunity to excel in a relaxing and sociable environment.

  • A competitive starting salary with 6-month compensation reviews
  • A steep learning curve with the chance to make a tangible impact within a growing business
  • Outgoing and sociable team with monthly company socials
  • Charlie HR perks package including discounts on hundreds of high street brands and services
  • 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays
  • Employee Pension Scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Bi-weekly fresh fruit delivery from Oddbox
  • 30% discount for F&F on all Mous products
  • Huge opportunities for career progression in a high-growth start-up. Dream big, work hard and make things happen!

Mous is an equal opportunity employer and as a brand, we value authenticity and integrity. We strive to be different and know that if we are to create the best products possible, we need to build a diverse team of individuals who can bring a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills to the table. No matter your race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or age, at Mous your uniqueness is celebrated.
