Are you wanting to stretch your creative legs and get more involved in the actual do? Well, this branding agency is now looking for a Design Director to do just that!

They might be small in size, but not in the work they produce, they think and do big! They work with some incredibly meaty clients and often on a global scale and work on projects spanning over strategic visual identity systems, engagement campaigns, corporate branding and communications and even service branding too!

They are very well established, with some enviable names under their belt. They are not part of a group, so you are all masters of your own destiny! They have moved into a new space, which is just lovely – in the heart of Central London.

They are looking for a Design Director who has come from the corporate branding agency world, someone who does not mind being hands on as well as directing the design team. The CD has recently got promoted (which we are so happy about!), so this is to replace him. You will be helping them leading and owning projects, meeting/presenting to clients and helping to nurture the brilliant designer they have on the team already!

Because of what they do, you will also be working alongside some awesome strategists, so its important that you have done so before in other branding projects and of course, they have client services support, to make sure projects are running like clockwork.

If you are a frustrated Senior Designer ready to step up OR a Design Director craving a smaller team and craving somewhere more personal, one where you can get closer to clients and to your colleagues – this is the one!

In terms of what the agency is looking for - of course number one is talent in the core branding design space; but also someone who is pretty down to earth, keeps a calm head, who enjoys the interaction with clients, and who enjoys working with less experienced designers, helping them to excel and who enjoying getting involve with the design itself.

Please get in touch with your CV and portfolio!

Essential skills:
| Previous experience in designing for the corporate world
| A creatively charged portfolio showcases complex design solution across multiple touchpoints
| Project and team leading
| A great communicator and story teller
| Being hands on and doing the do as well as leading
