– The ability to find and execute a creative concept at the highest possible level across multiple touchpoints

– An unrelenting work ethic that is driven to create design that goes above and beyond client expectations

– A concious understanding and curiosity of the impact the work we create has on the wider world

– A strong portfolio of experimental, conceptually driven projects across sectors

– To always have the end-user, and practicality in mind in all your work. Our designs are never just a veneer, they should always be driven by a reason

– A love of digital and trying out new types of technology whenever you get the opportunity

– A real love and understanding of typography and layout, and a drive to make it a key and ever-improving feature of your work

– Strong art direction capabilities and the desire to embed this as a key feature of the work you create

– The ability to visualise a creative concept using photography from a vast reference pool of current contemporary culture, not stock image libraries

– Detail obsessed

– Experience in the international hospitality, F+B and hotel sectors. Not essential, but a big plus.
