Open’s creative team has an exciting new opening for a mid-weight Designer to help develop inspiring, effective creative for some of the world’s most loved charities.

Are you a mid-weight Designer who wants to use your talents to really make a difference in the world? Come and join Open’s exciting creative team and help our charity clients change the world.

Maybe you work in-house and now want to experience the variety of agency life? Or perhaps, you’ve already got some agency experience, but want to work with charity and not-for-profit clients? Or maybe you’ve been freelancing or taken a career break and are now ready to join a vibrant and fast-paced team again?

Whatever your background, if you have at least a couple of years experience, a passion for print, and want to make the world a better place, we want to hear from you!

This is a varied and important role within our creative department. You’ll work with Art Directors, Artworkers and Copywriters across our full roster of charity clients to deliver highly effective and inspiring creative.

Briefs will range from the design of direct mail packs and inserts to OOH and press ads, from magazine layouts to product identities. You’ll help bring the vision of our Art Directors to life and have a keen eye for detail. You’ll be an expert in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop and be excited to learn about the art of fundraising and responsive design.

Though this is primarily a print-based role, you’ll also have the opportunity to work on Social campaigns and support on film and video projects when appropriate. As such, we’re looking for a real all-rounder who is happy to try new things and learn and develop new skills on the job. At Open, we believe in growing our people, so training and development will also be available to bridge any skills gaps.

Our office is situated in Holborn Studios, besides the Regent’s Canal, and just a short walk from both Angel and Old Street tube stations. We are increasingly working back in our office, but there are still days where we work from home. Just a short bus ride from both Farringdon and King’s Cross, we also have a number of employees based outside of London who commute a few days a week. Though this is a permanent, full-time role, we’re also happy to discuss flexible working for the right candidate.
