We are explorers and innovators who strive to bring awareness and authenticity to all areas of what we do, be it our artistic process or how we grow our people and structure our business.

• A focus on day-to-day support activities, including but not limited to: regularly updating the website, creating online presentations and the general upkeep of the Based Upon app and project archives.


• To support the studio manager and pitch in with the day-to-day running of the design studio.


What are we looking for from the successful candidate?


• 3+ years’ experience in a similar role.


• You are a passionate, imaginative and conscientious creative with an excellent portfolio that shows an understanding in print and digital design processes.


• You are excited to innovate ideas, have the ability to create exceptional work independently as well as under direction.


• Highly motivated, with a determination to learn and an ability to work in a fluid environment, under tight deadlines while maintaining an attention to detail and an eye for quality.


• Proficient communication skills, both verbally and visually.


• Fluency in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop), and / or other visual software.


• Have an understanding of print production and working with suppliers.


• Desirable: applicants will be familiar with Squarespace.
