We are looking highly talented designer to join our lovely client – one of the most highly regarded design studios in London.
Competition to join this studio is high, so your folio will need to demonstrate impeccable graphic design and art direction, with a particular lean towards branding within luxury and lifestyle sectors.
Your work needs to not only be beautifully crafted, but inspirational. You will have a broad range of work with demonstrable expertise across a range of design styles and you should be highly proficient at articulating a design vision or concept.
You will have a strong understanding of brand first and foremost, with immaculate typography, colour and layout.
Experience of working within a strategic design led environment is ideal, and any experience within the fashion, property and F&B sectors – all at the top, luxury end – would be highly beneficial, and equally, experience from a similar highly regarded design led studio/agency would be of interest. A thorough understanding of brand is a must, particularly luxury. You will need a discerning eye and aspire to work for the best.
On a personal level, strong presentation skills will also be crucial, as you will be regularly presenting to a discerning client base, and a light hearted attitude would be beneficial. You will be confident in communicating with clients, artists/photographers and production teams on all aspects of creative deliverables.
You’ll have around 4-6 years’ experience ideally.
