We are looking for an experienced and highly creative Senior Designer to join us to assist with a variety of digital, print and brand/identity projects.

It’s a multidisciplinary role but we’ll be especially interested in your digital capabilities. We build a lot of websites and we want you to help to take our work further, so experience in designing clever, organisational CMS driven sites as well as having a keen interest in the web would be a key requirement.

We’re looking for someone with a strong visual sense, an analytical mind, a good eye for detail and a portfolio of work to demonstrate this. We’re looking for someone who thrives on challenge and can work within a tight deadline (when required).

With an expanding team, your role will see you engaged on multiple projects simultaneously; you’ll be joining us at an exciting time. We’re smart, hard working and rather fun – so we can offer you a challenging, interesting and rewarding place to work.
