My name is Tom. I’m a poet and copywriter and I started The Beautiful Meme to put gorgeous, intelligent, emotive brand things into the world. I believe that everything you make, makes you you. I want to make the world less boring. I want to make magical commercial things, and poetic, surreal non-commercial things.


I’m looking for a Design Director / Art Director to do this with me. You will love concepts as much as aesthetics. You will relish working with writing and will draw your influences from art and thinking, as much as the history of design.


The Beautiful Meme began in Whitechapel four years ago. In that time we’ve worked with the Design Museum, Google, V&A, British Library, D&AD, Nike, Deloitte, Southbank Centre and eOne. Our next four years are going to be bigger.


I’d love to chat to you if you have eight years plus experience and are confident in building and leading a design team. You’ll have awards, and you’ll know how to create everything from brand guidelines to film to digital experiences to something people haven’t seen before. You’ll understand that life in a small agency is varied and tough and an adventure. You’ll want to be hands on. You’ll want to make work that people are looking at in 50 years’ time.
