About us


International premium content agency making enticing website visuals, social assets, and one-off brand Installations for brands such as Dove, Ray-Ban and Loro Piana. Located in a beautiful townhouse in Smithfield Not Actual Size is a 25+ strong team of brilliant writers, award winning designers and best-in-class content managers. We have a distinctive less-is-more company culture reflected in our sole emphasis on the quality of our work.


Who we’re looking for


Over the past year we’ve won some exciting new projects so we’re now on the lookout for an ambitious, multi-faceted junior designer to join the team. Our ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of design thinking, a strong eye to detail, and a can-do attitude to learn. Things can get busy at NAS so we’re looking for someone who is happy to work in fast paced environments, is well organised and able prioritise and produce high-quality work within tight deadlines.


What you’ll get up to


You’ll be joining our small (but mighty) design team meaning you’ll get up close and personal with lots of different projects. As a junior, you’ll bring fresh and creative, yet practical thinking across a range of projects from creating thumb-stopping social media assets for Instagram, to designing pitch winning presentations and preparing pixel-perfect digital artwork for upload. You’ll assist at all stages of creative projects: from initial concept to artwork and final production.


We’ll also get you out of the office to help out on production projects and shoots. And every now and again there’ll be an internal design project that we’ll get you involved with too. This role is mainly digital but we do get the odd print project to mix things up a bit. You’ll be working alongside our designer and art director but we’ll expect you to take ownership of your work and be happy working autonomously as well. As well as the creative team you’ll have the ability to develop strong working and management relationships with the wider NAS team, contractors and clients.
