About Us

Mous is a young, disruptive and rapidly growing lifestyle accessory start-up. We provide smart solutions centred around protection and functionality that hold design and craft at their core. We’ve grown from a guerrilla crowdfunding campaign to an internationally recognised brand, shipping to almost every country in the world. Since day one, we’ve been determined to disrupt the saturated lifestyle accessory market, whilst constantly pushing the boundaries of what it means to be an engaging brand. We knew that in order to achieve this, our products needed to be three things: stylish, functional and protective. After months and months spent designing and testing, we created our unique AiroShock technology and paired it with raw materials to launch our signature Limitless case.

…that was in 2016. Since then, we have rapidly developed and expanded our product range, offering multiple cases per phone with an array of add-ons! We’ve also picked up numerous awards along the way, including best ‘UK Crowdfunded Business of the Year in 2017’ and coming 3rd in The UKStartups100’s in 2018!

After going from strength to strength (we hit annual revenue of £8.5M last year!), we are continuing to exceed the limits of what we can do and there has never been a more exciting time for our Creative team! We are looking for a talented Junior Graphic Designer with an innate ability to generate unique ideas, coupled with the technical proficiency to bring them to life!
