Are you a Senior Designer with a proven folio in high-end luxe design?

Our client is an award-winning developer, project manager and boutique design house focusing on very high-end residential private residences to a North London demographic – think Candy and Candy of the suburbs or the Aston Martin of the property world. More of a lifestyle brand than a property brand; they take creative inspiration not from property, but from hotels, restaurants, exclusive member clubs and couture etc.

Unlike their competitors, they control the entire creative process; from site conception and interior design to event launch, branding and marketing, advertising and copy.

Residences can be in excess of £3 million. They identify a site, buy, build, market and sell, often to Ultra high-net-worth individuals. No two projects are the same, they are totally individual, each with its own unique and considered identity. The Lead Designer gives each project an identity, from name generation /marque origination and overall branding and then works with local agents regarding the off plan sales, advertising and campaigns, brochures, stunning embossed and foiled books worthy of any coffee table, hoardings, signage and wayfinding as well as teaser campaigns, the launch events, show homes and press related communication.

You would conceptualise the projects’ identities and see them through to completion across all media, in the areas listed above, as well as their website, and social media/Instagram etc
Your folio might show a range of brands, in any sector, but an understanding of the luxury markets is absolutely essential – a ‘less is more’ philosophy, elegance through simplicity.

Our client is based near Watford and free on-site parking is available and trains take less than 30 mins from Kings Cross.

Please submit your URL or pdf folio to amber@for-london.com

Please note, we thank you for your applications, only successful candidates will receive a response.

Your day to day duties will entail taking briefs, concept presentations to Senior
Management, assisting with costs, quotes and sampling for printed assets, overseeing the production of artwork to print ready standard.

Assets will also be used across social media platforms from scratch to fulfill both static and moving image requirements.

To qualify you must have:

These guys are looking for someone with a curious mindset – someone looking to push the boundaries and produce stunning digital creative.

Stepping into this Digital Designer role you will be expected to contribute to the full design mix – from concept, wireframing, UI design and collaborating with the whole team to produce, and deliver strong, unique design!

_What We’re Looking For
We want to hear from experienced digital designers who can show us a portfolio of exciting, varied work. You must have the confidence to deliver new, innovative design and be equally creative on the idea development side of things.

Passion for design is paramount alongside a positive and fresh attitude – you will be working on big projects for big name clients, you need to hold your own and impress.

Etch are looking for a Designer / project manager to join their small but expanding team.

We are looking for a self-motivated creative go-getter with an excellent knowledge of manufacture and print. Oh and you’ll have an impeccable eye for design!

The real trick to what we do lays in our knowledge of the processes needed to make something ‘happen’. When a client shows us a design or a scamp, our job is to make that 2D concept into a viable product to be produced on scale to a set time and budget.

A typical project at Etch starts at either concept stage or an existing render / drawing from a client. We then break down that project into its component parts which are assigned to their most suitable manufacturing processes, be it moulding, extrusion, card engineering, acrylics (we do a lot of acrylic!), digital print, screen print, litho, powder coating, sheet metal etc etc. Our job is then to bring all of these processes together to create a stunning end product which is both on brand, on budget and on time. After that, we have a well earned beer (other drinks are available) to celebrate a job well done!

You will need to be comfortable taking multiple briefs directly from clients and managing them in their entirety. You will be liaising directly with multiple clients and suppliers across multiple medias and need to keep cool under pressure. As we’re a small business, we occasionally have less busy times. In this time, you will expected to be proactive with the rest of the team to ensure we are always moving forward and staying razor sharp on the retail scene and staying at the forefront of creative and manufacturing processes.

Skills Required:
• 3 years experience in the manufacture / design for retail brands
• AutoCAD
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Technical art working for print and production (vector and pixel based art working)
• 3D visualisation and rendering (ideally Cinema 4D or Solidworks)
• Estimating. You will be comfortable breaking down a project or product into its individual elements and costing each part and process.
• Impeccable communication skills. We really are ‘Yes’ people here and ‘service with a smile’ is paramount to our ethos.
• Deep understanding and a methodical approach to manufacture and print.

Bonus points awarded for:
• 3D animation
• Business Development experience
• Revenue opportunities

As a small team, the position will be very broad and you’ll be working in an agency / start up atmosphere where things will change as we grow. You will be working directly with the MD and Head of Creative to offer a market leading service to an exceptional client list. Etch delivers where other companies shy away, we are looking for a candidate to do the same. If you are ambitious, eager to learn and intrigued by manufacture, we want to hear from you!
