Forty Eight Point One

Middleweight Designer

Based: London
Level: Mid-Weight
Salary: £30,000
Contract: Full Time
Applications Close: 07 December 2018
Job Listing Added: 19 November 2018

Who we are:

48.1% voted to remain. The majority didn’t.
We are a creative agency helping brands maintain the spirit of discovery.
The websites we design, the brands we craft and the content we create are underpinned by the same values that made us vote that day: A determination to open minds, not close doors.

How we work:

We talk, think, research and strategise.
We then design. And only ever in that order.
We work with established, international brands as well as the startups dreaming of becoming exactly that.
Some you may of heard of include POLPO, Franco Manca, Levi Roots and The Real Greek. 
When we began in 2016, more than half of our clientele was based within food and drink. It’s an area we not only know well, but love too.

As we’ve grown, so too have the sectors we work in. However, our ethos of understanding the brand and challenge first before designing anything remains the same. 

We are now looking for someone who wants to join the 48.1 team and grow with us.

Who we’re looking for:

We are looking for a talented, ambitious and hungry designer to join our studio in Shoreditch, London.
The successful candidate will be keen to work as part of a small team with big ambitions.

Working alongside our two Creative Directors, they will need to be comfortable taking the role of lead designer and in-turn managing multiple projects from concept to reality. 1-2 years of agency experience with a portfolio of live and personal projects is required. The role is ideal for a designer hungry to grow with the agency. Management of freelancers and future junior designers will be something that should really excite the potential candidate.

Your role:

Working closely with two Creative Directors, your projects will span a wide range of disciplines, sectors and challenges across print, digital and motion.

You will be working in a small design team of four and will be expected to own certain projects from start to finish. The job will require the delivery of ideas and concepts that combine intelligent creative and strategic understanding. And an uncompromising eye for detail is a must – ensuring the same level of energy, care and love is applied to the final artworking stages of the process.

How to Apply

The skills we need:
We are looking for someone who has a passion for design. A genuine love for type and image.

Confidence to communicate and idea and to work with a team. An eye for detail. A high level of competency in all creative suite software. A confidence to communicate and present to clients.

The skills that would be nice:
It would be great if you have a passion or talent that falls outside of the job scope. We promote and support all our team with their passions whether it be photography, videography, copywriting or coding. Something that would add another string to the studio’s bow. We have a musician a marathon runner and a rapper. If you could bring something else that would be great.

We need someone who is eager to learn and never afraid to ask questions. They should have a passion for their work as well as an uncompromising level of attention to detail. 

An appreciation for strategy and research is important. They should be eager to look beyond design to find the right answer to execute a brief. Someone with a proactive nature and eagerness to work with others, bringing their own experiences and knowledge to the table. 

If you love design, want to get better, get on with people and think joining a young, ambitious agency is the right next step for them - you know what to do.
