Who we are


Forpeople is a multi-disciplinary creative agency, making distinctly human products and experiences for some of the world’s most interesting and innovative companies - including Coca-Cola, Cunard, Herman Miller, Intercontinental Hotels Group, Yamaha, Panasonic and NIO.


Founded in 2004, today we’re an intensely collaborative group of over a hundred specialists, working together in a remarkable old pickle factory in South London across projects that span industrial design, strategy & insight, interiors, forecasting, user experience and brand communications.


Our work is wide-reaching and ever-changing, yet always anchored by a single, simple focus. People. Because ultimately, if design isn’t for people, then who is it for?


Who we’d like to find


Since 2004, we’ve grown from only four to over one hundred by finding the right people – people that don’t only slot right in to our studio culture, but bring something incredible to it.


This role requires:


• A multi-disciplinary approach to projects
• Significant experience leading a design team, managing and mentoring more junior designers
• Significant experience working with leading FMCG brands, developing identities, campaigns, communications, packaging, films and digital
• A passion for bold, simple design with a youthful spirit
• Experience working at a similarly senior level within a creative or design consultancy
• Running multiple projects simultaneously
• Working well under time pressure and with quick turn-arounds
• Strong story-telling skills
• A developing portfolio of innovative and creative design work
• Ambition to take on more responsibility, grow a team and manage client relationships
• Competent user of 2D design software (Adobe)
• Strong presentation skills


You’ll stand out if you:


• Are plugged in to popular culture with awareness of what’s going in in fashion, music and other youth passion points
• Are creative, optimistic and entrepreneurial
• Are driven to succeed, decisive and can dependably deliver
• Are collaborative, influential and respectful of values


What we offer


People mean the world to us. That includes looking after our own, with things like:


• Global clients and world-class work
• A competitive salary
• A strong bonus and benefits package, reflecting both company and personal performance
• Training, support and personal career development
• A generous company pension
• A unique, inspiring working environment filled with incredible, likeminded people
