Who we are

Forpeople is a multi-disciplinary creative agency, making distinctly human products and experiences for some of the world’s most interesting and innovative companies - including Adidas, British Airways, Coca-Cola, Herman Miller and Intercontinental Hotels Group.

Founded in 2004, today we’re an intensely collaborative group of over ninety specialists, working together in a remarkable old pickle factory in South London across projects that span industrial design, strategy & insight, interiors, forecasting, user experience and brand communications.

Our work is wide-reaching and ever-changing, yet always anchored by a single, simple focus. People. Because ultimately, if design isn’t for people, then who is it for?

This role requires:

• Experience working with leading brands, developing identities and guidelines.

• A developing portfolio of innovative and creative design work
• Ambition to take on more responsibility, grow a team and manage client relationships
• Solid understanding of the 2D design & production processes
• Competent user of 2D design software (Adobe)

• Experience crafting clear and concise brand guidelines and standards
• Strong presentation skills

You’ll stand out if, like us, you:

• Have a thirst for knowledge
• Are creative, optimistic and entrepreneurial
• Are driven to succeed, decisive and can dependably deliver
• Are collaborative, influential and respectful of values
