An independent multi-disciplinary agency known for delivering exceptional interior design is looking for a 3D Design Director.

The facts:

This agency has developed a solid niche in the market for interior design, guest experience and branding with the food & beverage and hospitality sectors, and their offer is expanding. Their clients range from independent restaurant and bar brands to large scale corporate organisations.

This is a really complete role. You will be conceptual as well as technically adept, happy to be client facing and able to sell the agency offer as well as being heavily involved in the writing of proposals. You’ll be working with clients, as well as heading up (with support) an interior design team of 15.

You will have a keen eye on interior design trends, the high street and how it’s changing, as well as how brands are experienced in different spaces.

This could be a role for a very ambitious senior designer that has management experience. It’s a great time to be joining an agency in what is an exciting stage of expansion for them.

What’s the role?

While the role will focus squarely on creating the highest possible quality work throughout, we think the role will have two distinct phases:

In the near term, you will contribute to the development of the brand and identity by translating a new visual system into many of its real-world manifestations – across ad creative, host and guest collateral, PR, promotions and campaigns and internal activations. You will be expected to expand and interpret it afresh for new mediums and applications as the organisation and its touchpoints rapidly expand and evolve. You’ll help other teams within Plum to understand and interpret the new identity and bring the brand to life in a way that fits their diverse needs. You will be the go-to advisor on what a successful application of the brand and identity looks like.

Over the long term, you will be in charge of producing world-class work that will ensure our brand stands apart from the competition as a design-led business. You will help build a loyal following of customers, hosts and cultural thought leaders from the worlds of architecture, design and hospitality.

If that didn’t sound demanding enough, your role will not be limited to design alone. The Brand and Marketing Team are charged with making Plum famous and we’ll need your help, energy and support to come up with new ideas, help educate other teams, be the flagbearer for quality and standards and chip in occasionally on other workstreams.

——————————————
What are we looking for from the successful candidate?

You’re super-talented, excited about great ideas and committed to doing great work.

You’ll have a portfolio chocked full that shows a breadth of print and some digital design work and have the experience to match.

You’ll be fluent in ‘brand’ and ‘design’ and open to, and able to hold your own in, ‘strategy’ conversations.

Attention to detail and an eye for quality.

A practical, pragmatic, can-do attitude. You like getting things done, efficiently.

Developer Internship

London

Made by Many is a new kind of consulting company. Experts of varied backgrounds, in technology, product design and business strategy, we’ve come together to help ambitious businesses differentiate and compete to become digital businesses.

We’ve proven our quality in the market over the last 11 years: 77 clients, 102 strategy projects, 76 products launched into the market in 14 countries. But it’s not all about the product; it’s about putting our clients into a stronger long-term position, to be able to compete more effectively. For every client, that’s a different problem. With every client we find a different solution.

We believe that, in a world of continuous change, the right strategy evolves through an early, educated assessment, followed by our process of making, testing and learning.

Internship Program 2019

Every year, Made by Many opens its doors and invites curious and enthusiastic talent from the worlds of design, technology and product management to spend their summer with us, to learn more about the exciting world of digital product design and innovation. Working together as a team of three on a ‘live’ brief, interns are supported by Made by Many mentors and coaches as they develop the skills to ‘make, test and learn’ – just like we do.

We are looking for a developer to join our twelve week program to experience what digital product innovation really looks and feels like. If you’re excited by making products that matter and would relish the chance to make, test and learn with us, read on!

The Developer Internship: Why Apply?

Digital Development is about believing you can use digital innovation to make a positive impact on people’s lives. As a developer, you are technically curious about the way digital products work and have an interest in learning how to craft new experiences that respond to genuine needs. You believe that people come first, technology second.

At a glance you should:

  • be deeply enthusiastic about web technology
  • have enough experience to be comfortable building a working product (with some support and guidance from our developers)
  • be able to pair frontend (eg HTML, CSS and JavaScript) with backend technology (eg Ruby on Rails, Node.js or Elixir)
  • feel at home in an open, collaborative environment and working within a close-knit team
  • feel comfortable conducting user research and working iteratively
  • have strong communication skills

It would also be a bonus if you have some experience with the following:

  • implementing mobile-first, responsive designs
  • mobile development in iOS/Android

What will you do?

You’ll team up with the other two other interns – a product designer and a product manager – to design and develop a new digital product. Throughout the process, you’ll:

  • get to work on a ‘live brief’ and develop meaningful solutions to real problems
  • gain practical experience using some of the development tools and methods we use every day
  • develop research and rapid prototyping skills
  • develop the soft skills needed for you to become a digital pioneer
  • walk away with sterling work to boost your portfolio

What will you gain?

We believe that successful digital developers need to be future-proofed. This means that they need to have the mindsets, skills and behaviours that allow them to adapt in an ever-changing world of work – to see opportunities where others might see barriers. The Made by Many Internship 2019 offers its interns the chance to develop not only the technical capabilities necessary to create memorable and meaningful work, but also the confidence and self-belief to thrive in the world of digital product innovation.

To see what this looks like, check out Madeleine’s blog post from the 2017 internship, and take a look at Hackaball, a connected device conceived through one of our first internships.

What you need to know…
