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 with ambitions of becoming exactly that. These include the likes of POLPO, Franco Manca, Campari and Sipsmith as well as not for profit organisations.


More than half of our clientele work in the food and drink arena - it’s an area we not only know well, but love. However, we have plenty of clients who work outside of that world. Regardless of sector, our ethos of understanding the brand and challenge first before designing anything remains. We are now looking for the next addition who wants to join the 48.1 team and grow with us.


Who we’re looking for


We are searching 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 dealing with multiple projects from concept to reality. 2 years of agency experience with a portfolio of live and personal projects is required – as is a strong leaning to digital, web and branding.


Your Role


This role is tailor made for a designer with an obsessive attention to detail and an eagerness to learn, develop and grow. Management of freelancers and future junior designers will be something that should really excite the potential candidate.


The candidate’s projects will span a wide range of disciplines and challenges across print, digital and motion. They will be working in a small design team of four and while they will be expected to own certain projects from start to finish, our environment is collaborative and supportive.


This is a role that will require a high level of energy and creativity throughout any given process. As a result, the successful candidate will have the ability to combine creative and strategic understanding in the early stages whilst ensuring the same care and attention is applied during the latter stages of the process.
In short – if you love design, want to get better, love working in a small team and think joining a young, ambitious agency is the right next step - you know what to do.

How to Apply

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. We would like to see Portfolios with:

- Work in branding and digital, specifically showcasing an example of any web builds that you have been involved in from start to finish.
- Any projects you’d like to show outside of this area are welcome also.
- While by no means essential, self initiated projects, illustration, motion graphics, photography etc. help us to see who you are as a creative beyond your client work.
