The Facts
You will be joining a growing team of experts in their fields (strategists, researchers, psychologists, anthropologists and writers, plus a whole heap more) initially as the sole in-house designer, you will have lots of room to grow and given plenty of autonomy.  Once established the ambition is to grow the design team, so this role will suit an ambitious 2nd jobber who will thrive on responsibility and ownership.

With a passion for creative problem-solving, you will love the challenge of bringing insights to life through design and creativity – be it a piece of print, layout, infographic, digital piece or even video.  You will be expected to lead the design process from start to finish.

Your folio should showcase your strong skills in visual communication – layout and typography, information graphics, and a strong use of image and photography – fundamentally you will be driven by design thinking and delivering not only great looking work, but work that makes sense.

You will have a minimum of 2+ years’ experience, perhaps in a similar type of environment and now looking to take on more responsibility.

You’ll be
Genuinely interested in human behaviour
Enthusiastic and open minded – willing to get stuck-in
A great communicator, confident and articulate
A stickler for detail, you’ll spot a typo a mile off
A strong team-player.

Your superpower
A smart thinker with crafted design skills

One of London’s rapidly growing ad agencies are looking for a Mid-weight Designer with fantastic flair and energy to join their team as soon as possible.

Even though they are still fairly under the radar, everyone wants to work for them, and at present they are in an exciting transition of developing culturally, from a design output and art direction point of view.

Even though they are a small agency, being part of a larger network means they have access to global brands, but at the same time they are still able to operate as a boutique agency, working on independent design focused projects for exciting clients outside of their main roster. They also have a very close knit culture, where the design team work collaboratively under the guidance of an extremely well-reputed Design Director in the industry.

Culture is extremely important to them, and they need someone who is engaging and willing to learn and progress but of whom others can learn from. Designers are given a lot of freedom to be creative, so someone who can work independently with the confidence to vocalise their own ideas is crucial.

The role works across all their commercial accounts, with a 75/25 print/digital split, and your design will inform everything from tone of voice to look and feel.

As a highly competent Designer, an excellent grasp of typography, illustration and layout with an award-winning and original aesthetic is essential. As the team is small, someone with a varied output and who is technically savvy would be a huge benefit!

Although an advertising or creative agency background is preferred, they are open to Designers from a range of backgrounds with experience of a minimum of 4 years with an extremely cool and stylish folio.

Please send your CV and folio to hayley@for-london.com for immediate consideration.

This independent agency works with incredibly meaty, often global clients, but it remains smaller and independent, and is looking for a world-class design director from the corporate branding agency world.

They’re well established, with some enviable global-name clients under their belt, they aren’t part of a group and so are masters of their own destiny, AND they’re based in central London too.
The design team is not large, but is growing, hence the need for a design director (someone already at this level) to help the creative director with leading projects, meeting/presenting to clients, and helping to nurture the less senior designers on the team too.
You’ll work alongside strategy people, so it’s important that you’ve done so before in other branding agencies, and of course they have client services support.
So if you’ve come from a “big corporate/service branding” background with one or two of the top 5 branding agencies, but you’re craving a rather smaller team, somewhere more personal, and 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.

Essential skills:
| Big and meaty corporate branding expertise
| Already at design director level, so project team leading, client facing
| Still happy to design as well as leading

A very good, independent (and not huge) corporate/service branding agency, based in central London, is searching for a new midweight designer to join a really excellent team.
They’re well established, they work with global brands – definitely the kind of names you’ll have heard of in the corporate world – and yet they are not one of the “big branding boys” – unusual, but they have impeccable credentials and contacts, and they do an excellent strategic and creative job for those very big clients!
The creative director is looking for a new designer to join the permanent team – at midweight level – though you could be an experienced junior designer wanting their 2nd job and a step up, or already a midweight designer.
They have some extremely good strategists on board, so its important that you’ve worked in a branding agency with a strategy offer, so that you understand what strategy does and how to work with the strategy team. And perhaps one of the biggest selling points is that here, unlike a very big agency, you’ll get to be involved in every creative aspect of projects from initial concept to final design. The design team is not large, and the designers get to see their projects through the whole process!

What’s in it for you? Well meaty clients to work with, for a start; a very very knowledgeable and experienced creative director from whom you can learn a lot; the chance to see your creative work out there, and to feel that you really have “done that” instead of doing only a bit of it; an upbeat, friendly, focused creative team, who love what they do – and an agency generally that is on the rise, and winning really great work.
Is this the next step in your branding career? Well it could be – so send us your cv and your corporate branding work samples, and let’s see if we can make this happen for you!

Essential skills:
Meaty corporate branding experience (this is not only about a logo and letterhead!)
At least 3 years experience in a core branding agency
Strong conceptual ability, and the ability to consider lots of brand touchpoints
Able to take a brand into the digital space with ideas for corporate websites, etc

Does brand activation, employee engagement campaigns and maybe even some branding sound appealing to you? If it does, we have a plum role with an agency based in central London.
The agency works with some big clients – some global, some European, some British – in communicating important messages, values and initiatives to their employees and stakeholders. So sometimes you might be branding a new initiative, or creating an event to launch a new benefit, or a campaign across posters and lots of other touchpoints (including online) to announce news or a change.
It is employee engagement at its best, and we’re looking for a new upper midweight or lower senior designer level person to join the team.
You’d work with a creative director, and alongside other senior and midweight designers, liaising with the strategy team, and perhaps sometimes with their other offices on projects. And you’d be involved all the way through – so you’d get to see your work “out there”.
And if you have done a bit of motion design as well and would like to use this in a new role – well the opportunity is there for sure.
You will have been worked in a creative agency – either in a branding agency, possibly in an integrated campaign agency, or even perhaps in PR or marketing agencies, and you’ll need a folio that showcases not only campaigns themselves, but your core ideas behind them too – this agency doesn’t have art directors, so you’ll need to be your own conceptual art director too.
Sound like your kind of thing? Then send us your cv and a folio with relevant work, and we’ll take a look.
Essential skills:
| creative agency background
| branding and/or brand activation campaigns
| some digital experience as well as print-based design work

The role.
Role: Mid-Weight UI/UX Designer Salary: Competitive

As part of the Design team you’ll be an ever-present advocate for the user, working on products and services that place the needs of the user at the heart of our product…unusual for insurance, right?

Simply put, our goal is to make insurance better for everyone.

At the beginning of the year we launched our own policies for cats and dogs along with a new interface for receiving quotes, buying policies,
and a new my account area. We achieved this by listening to our customers stories and experiences in the hope that we can do things not just differently, but better.

We are currently going through a digital transformation, redesigning the website and our brand, while all the while making new features…this is where we need you!

You in our team.

As a team, we are small. One Product Manager, one Designer, one Designer/Front End and eight
Devs! Each of us has a lot of impact on how Bought By Many looks and works.

As an end to end Designer, you’ll be involved right from planning to execution. Your interest and focus will be in human-centred visual design. Your strength will be in UI and visuals, with a broad knowledge of common user interface design patterns, iconography, typography and colour theory.

You are someone who realises the importance of connecting and balancing business goals with user needs. On a daily basis you will collaborate with our Developers and other team members to determine the best and most practical ways to implement your designs.
Your portfolio should speak for itself and show o your personality, it should have case studies that demonstrate your understanding of responsive interfaces, and show your overall process of how you work with a given problem.

Join us…
and help us make amazing things!
