About you

We’re looking for an experienced, capable and creative Senior Designer to join our friendly team working on a variety of digital and print projects for the typically non-profit, cultural, research and purpose-lead clients we work for.

Depending on your skills and interests we'll have lots of varied work for you – from one-off print / digital projects, identity / brand, print reports and publications to exhibition design. It’s obviously a multidisciplinary role but we’ll be especially interested in your digital design capabilities. We build a lot of websites and we want you to help to take our work further, so experience in designing good looking, clever websites as well as having a keen interest in the web is an important requirement.

We’re looking for someone with a strong visual sense, an analytical mind, a good eye for detail and a portfolio of work to demonstrate this. We’re looking for someone who thrives on challenge and can work within a tight deadline (when required). You’ll also be someone who likes communicating and can engage with our clients to understand what they’re looking for and indeed to lead them through the creative process.

It’s a job that’s full of interest and challenge – normally your role will see you engaged on multiple projects simultaneously; you’ll be joining us at an exciting time. We’re smart, hard working and rather fun – so we can offer you a challenging, interesting and rewarding place to work where your work and passion will make a difference to our clients.

– You’re really good at what you do
– Graduate level education or equivalent work experience
– At least 7 years commercial experience working in a design/digital agency environment
