You will create a clear, exciting and impactful HR strategy that implements seamless tools and processes; and progressive policies that include talent acquisition, training and development, compensation & benefits and culture.

Your goal – ultimately – is to create an inspiring and effective environment that reflects, and builds upon, the company brand values, the passion for creativity and making things better.

We will be looking for candidates with demonstrable experience growing one or two startups, and preferably for a consumer-facing / entertainment brand. This is a senior, operational role that is not only rooted in HR strategy, but also branches across business development, organisational design, change management and succession planning.

We’re looking for a experienced Senior Digital Designer (5+ years’ experience) with a digital or brand agency background (preferably a mix of large and small) to join our growing team in London, working on some amazing projects for the likes of eBay, Sony PlayStation and YouTube.

We’re a multidisciplinary agency, so as well being a digital expert (having concepted, planned and designed websites, digital products and campaigns in your past roles) you need to understand branding and how brand-led design fits into digital.

Desired skills and experience —

You understand the commercial world and how brands need to reach, entertain and inspire audiences. You’re a visually inventive, highly organised and motivated thinker, you thrive under pressure and love working with people, dealing with clients and asserting your ideas.

You’re an expert designer in all things Adobe CS, Sketch and have more than an interest in animation, with any HTML & CSS knowledge a nice to have. All this of course is grounded in super-human typography skills and a great attention to detail.

You understand user experience and focus on user-centred thinking (but aren’t a UX designer) and you know how to get the best designed experiences into a browser across any device – you’re are a true thinker of interaction.

You can confidently define and design information structure, interface and functional ideas to make engaging digital experiences and your design process goes beyond purely the visual, to include prototyping, UCD processes and testing where you need extra validation for your ideas.

You also have an appreciation of the more technical elements of digital work, be it responsive development, social networking platforms and interaction outside of the browser.

Day to day you will be working across a range of projects, covering website, social media channels and global screen content (campaign films, trailers, teasers).  You will take responsibility for maintaining brand continuity across screen based projects, assets and platforms, ensuring digital design standards are always kept cohesive.

As such, you will thrive in a fast paced environment and respond well (and quickly) to tight deadline briefs, as well as managing a range of projects simultaneously – you will be adept at managing your own time effectively.

You will have excellent skills in After Effects, particularly animation and video editing – you should also have exceptional Photoshop skills with proven experience of creating static and moving assets, evits, emailers and gifs.  Any sound editing or colour grading of video footage experience would be highly advantageous, but not essential.

You will be:

A fast worker without compromising on quality

An excellent, confident communicator

and a genius at multi-tasking whilst keeping a cool head under fire

Your superpower:

An After Effects Wizard!

All under the Sydney sunshine.

The agency will organise your visa for you, so you don’t even need to worry about that.

The “must have” in terms of you, is a career spent working with consumer brandowners on a variety of brand identity and packaging projects, across FMCG and drinks; a great core idea behind your design work; fabulous crafting of your designs; and either previous experience at design director level, or you could be at the very top end of senior designer level, hitting your head on a glass ceiling, and moving in order to become a design director.

Does all this sound appealing? If it does – and why wouldn’t it – wing us your cv and relevant consumer branding and packaging work samples!

Our consumer branding agencies seem to be crazily busy at the moment, and one in particular, based in Farringdon, needs a lot of freelance design help next week!

Want to work in one of the creatively-admired consumer branding agencies, based just over the Thames from Covent Garden? Want to be in an agency where the design work is genuinely important in the scheme of things?
If you do, this is one of the agencies that designers love to work for – genuinely! They are looking to grow their team by adding either a midweight at the top end of that level, or a senior designer – or both, in fact!
What’s in it for you? Well a great range of clients and projects to start with – from FMCG to drinks, from Brand to Own Brand, and nobody gets stuck on one client/project for ages, so you’d get to taste a range of different projects in different categories!
The team there is fab – nice people, well organised, good account management support, friendly, talented, and really good at welcoming new people.
What do they look for? Ideas are really important, and fabulous attention to detail with the final design too – they love good typography, they love designers who strive to achieve perfection – or as near as possible to it. You’ll need to already be working in a consumer branding/packaging agency too – this is important for them, as the variety there means that agency designers tend to thrive more easily.
So if you’re a midweight wanting a change, or a step up to senior designer level – of if you’re a senior designer already, but wanting a change of diet (and a culture that doesn’t do long hours unless they need to), then please do send us your cv and packaging work samples!

This boutique branding/packaging agency, based in South West London/Surrey borders, if looking for a fabulously ideas-driven senior designer to join their small and very close-knit team.

You’d get the chance to work on some great consumer brands – not just huge global brands, but many smaller challenger brands, or niche brands too – in fact a lot of the work is on those more ideas-focused projects.

And you’d join a small agency – not tiny, but small enough to remain very personal, friendly and human – but which includes people from some of the really well-known London branding agencies too. It’s a very nice environment and culture to work in.

In return, you’ll get the chance to really flex your conceptual muscles, get to know clients, help less senior designers to develop, and the chance to get the kind of work into your folio that you might have always wanted to do! And a good environment to do it in too.

They are extremely close to a mainline station – less than 5 minutes away – and they’re not out in the back of beyond at all – plenty of places for coffee and lunch nearby! So don’t be put off by the location – you can get there in 20 minutes from Waterloo and about 10 minutes from Clapham Junction!!

They have won some significant projects recently and the opportunities continue to come in. Their winning formula is combination of strategy and first class creativity.

Experience within the drinks or hospitality sector would be advantageous but not necessary.
