  • Everyone does everything, no one is above or below any project and every input is valid: from intern to director.
  • Accountability is important to us: we take responsibility for our work (even if we make mistakes!).
  • We create and maintain boundaries between work life, home life and clients. That requires you to be 100% present when you’re in the studio.

  • We make sure everyone gets heard.

  • We have empathy with colleagues and clients, and focus on cultivating relationships with people.
  • We pledge to always keep learning and embrace the new, taking risks, but not at the expense of deadlines.
  • And most importantly: we make sure we always leave the client and the project better than we found it.

Working Routine:

  • In light of the evolving COVID-19 circumstances, we will be working remotely for the remainder of the year, as the health and wellbeing of our team and others remains top priority.
  • Towards the end of 2020 we will be reviewing governmental guidance before deciding how to tackle 2021.
  • For now, what you can expect is two daily video call check-ins with the team to touch base on ongoing workload and priorities, after which you will crack on with your work and be expected to manage your time independently. The team are always available for sporadic catch ups and calls throughout the day as needed.
  • We hold a weekly in person (but socially distant!) meeting at our dedicated co-working space in Old Street
  • We use this time to discuss the progress of ongoing projects and talk through design concepts and developments.

The speed read:

Our client is a premium skincare brand that is growing and expanding its successful product range in the UK and new markets (EU and US).

The facts:

This business already has an established brand. We need a designer to work on a freelance basis to help them with design rollout, oversight and consistency across a growing range of skincare products.

You will deal with the content for the inserts and packaging, ensuring consistency, down to the smallest detail. You will be dealing with different content for different markets. And you will be happy to pick up the phone to check this with various professional contacts as necessary.

The client works partly in different time zones, so a little flexibility and responsiveness will be baked into this role.

To start with, the time commitment may be 1-2 days a week, but this may change. So this will fit alongside other freelance work, with an understanding that it could grow into a bigger commitment as the range and requirements grow (though it would never be full time).

You need to be practised in the full Adobe suite and be able to create repro ready packaging artwork.

You must have solid packaging experience. It would be great if you have worked in the skincare/beauty/cosmetics industry but it’s not essential.

You’ll:

  • Understand and support a refined, pared back brand and aesthetic.
  • Be meticulous
  • Have very high standards
  • Be super organised
  • Have a great can-do attitude
  • Be easy to get along with and want to feel part of a business
  • Be happy to work alone and give design advice to other (non-design) stakeholders in the business as appropriate

Ideal superpowers:

A great, flexible appetite with bundles of enthusiasm and attention to detail

Day rate negotiable, depending on experience, approx. £250 – £300 a day, rolling. Remote working.

Are you able to train up some of the world’s leading companies and innovators on how to use design thinking for innovation? You’ll be designing and running courses, workshops and leading innovation projects both online and in the UK and internationally. You’ll be working on socially relevant and commercially important projects helping clients bring services to market across multiple sectors. As we are a growing business, this maternity cover may lead to a permanent new role.
