ABOUT THE FOLD


The Fold is a trailblazing fashion brand founded on the belief that women should love the clothes they wear to work each day. The brand is known for indulgent, flattering pieces and is fast becoming the go-to for workwear and smart event dressing for today’s professional women.

THE ROLE


If you are excited about fashion and digital storytelling through innovative design, then we are looking for you! You will take conceptual lead from our Art Director and work with our Ecomm and Marketing teams in overhauling the creative for all our digital touch-points.

• Develop assets into rich, simple to use, commercial yet creative online experiences across multiple digital touch-points with a mobile first approach.
• Partnering with people across the business (marketing, ecomm, design, operations) to achieve business objectives.
• Be able to coherently communicate your vision for the UX through sketches, wireframes and clickable prototypes as well as finished designs.
