Founded in 2015 by two friends with a shared love of beer and branding, Thirst Craft is a specialist drinks packaging design agency that builds creatively rare, commercially right brands. Our fresh, exciting work attracts awards, attention and ardor by creating packaging that clients love and customers covet.

From our Glasgow office, we work with brands across the globe as well as in our own backyard; from the Caribbean to East Coast USA, Hong Kong to London.

Team Thirst are a talented bunch (even if we do say so ourselves), made up of people who have the perfect balance of positivity, perseverance and playfulness. No one’s scared to get their hands dirty here and we have zero time for big egos because, as well as designing drinks together, we like to drink them together too (even if it’s the soft variety).

This is a lively, collaborative, creative and friendly studio, where everyone can see their input on the work we produce. We have big plans for the future and every person in Team Thirst is part of them. So if you want to make your mark, make headlines with your work and be a full throttle force in driving Thirst forward then read on…

Due to strong and steady growth, as well as an influx of exciting projects from around the world, we’re after the best mid to senior designer in town. 

Specifically the role will include:

  • Coming up with big, brilliant ideas that answer diverse briefs 
  • Executing those ideas beautifully, bringing them to life using the right craft 
  • Working collaboratively with the team to deliver the goods, exciting and delighting the client with your work 
  • Being an energetic, inspirational presence in the studio – sharing your sources of inspiration, expertise and knowledge to further inspire and educate the team

If you’ve got flair, grit, a powerful portfolio and a penchant for packaging design we want to hear from you. At Thirst, ideas are king and they can come from anywhere, so we’re looking for people who throw themselves into the deep end, love to collaborate, are proactive self starters and – most of all – great company. Specifically, the person we’re looking for will:

Have 3-5 years industry experience Drinks packaging experience preferred but not essential Have great communication skills – both in terms of selling in your own designs or improving others’ work by giving clear creative feedback Be able to work full time from our Glasgow office Be a pro at all things Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign Be keen to learn and grow in your role as Thirst continues to grow.

The right person will be rewarded with enviably creative projects, a supportive team and a great working atmosphere…plus a lot of craft beer and spirits (if that’s not your thing we’ve got non-alcoholic options too).
