A Studio of Our Own is a young, fresh, independent creative marketing agency. We believe in the power of being brave, being nice and being honest.

We’re a small agency but we’re growing fast. We like to balance our work for some of the biggest companies on the planet (think Primark, SAP, Reckitt Benckiser) with work for start-ups, charities and not-for-profits.

We’re looking for a passionate, articulate and detail-obsessed designer to join our team.

A Day in the Studio

As with most agencies, no two days are the same at A Studio of Our Own. As a designer on our team, you’ll be working on a pretty wide range of different projects, probably on the same day, which are likely to include:
• Digital newsletters and editorial design
• Branding and brand guidelines design
• Wireframes and front end website design
• Event identities and collateral
• Storyboarding films and animations
• Mood boards/visual research
• Email templates
• And yes… some PowerPoint design.

And because we’re such a small team, and because we want our employees to grow with us, we’ll also be giving you the opportunities to work directly with clients, to sell and defend your ideas at pitches and presentations, and pro-actively chase new opportunities for growing the business.

Who we’re looking for:

We’re a small team. Tiny in fact. There really is no room for egos. You need:
• To be motivated and passionate about producing amazing work that grows both your reputation and the reputation of the Studio
• To know when to say “So what?”
• To be able to explain why, when someone says “So what?” to you
• Well organised and capable of juggling multiple projects

We’d hope you have a pretty good handle on:
• Illustrator
• InDesign
• Photoshop
• PowerPoint
• Word

And if you also have any experience in using After Effects, it’d be a bonus!

And in return…

• We’re offering what we think is a pretty competitive salary and benefits package, including 30 days holiday pa, health insurance and pension, plus an incentive on any new business you help bring to our Studio.

• We’re pretty flexible about where you work. The studio is based in Soho, and we do need someone who can be around for team meetings, client meetings, briefings and brainstorms, but we don’t expect you to be chained to your desk either.

• This role is a key hire for the growth of our agency. We'll want you to share in our future success, so we're keen to ensure that designers who come to us with passion and great ideas have the opportunity to grow too.
