Ministry of Sound opened in 1991 in a disused bus garage in a forgotten corner of South London. It was the first nightclub in the UK to have a 24-hour licence, didn’t serve alcohol and featured an earth-shaking sound system in a specially constructed dance box. We went on to become the world’s largest independent record company and stage giant dance events, including one for 50,000 people at the Millennium Dome.
We were pioneers in electronic music and have a history of taking risks, innovation, and colourful and creative marketing. As a business we don’t take ourselves too seriously, like to laugh and have fun, but we have high standards, a relentless attention to detail and the continuous improvement of our product, and we work hard as a team.
We hate cliché, doing things the way others do and continuously seek to differentiate our brands and products almost as a point of pride. Thirty years later we opened The Ministry, a workspace run as a member’s club, in a 50,000 sq. ft Victorian warehouse in SE1. The design is relaxed but functional with a bar, opening windows, an outside courtyard and plenty of space to sit, relax, work and socialise – everything you wouldn’t expect to find in a standard office.
There’s excellent F&B, a state-of-the-art gym and fitness studio with daily classes, together with a cultural and business events programme. The building has its own events and conference space and we’re about to introduce our own premium range of candles, diffusers, soaps, and other body care products. We believe this is the office of the future, members love it and it has been a big success.
We plan to take this a stage further with the opening of our second site at Westfield White City in early 2025. Members will access the office via an urban garden before ascending an escalator to a bar and deli with a five-metre floor to ceiling height. In addition to a private gym for members, the workspace will include wellness studios, a bakery, rooftop bar and restaurant, juice bar and champagne and doughnut bar, all public facing. There will be an events and conference facility and multiple other products and amenities not typically associated with a workspace.
We are seeking a highly skilled and detail-oriented mid-level Artworker to join us at The Ministry / Ministry of Sound in London.
As a mid-level Artworker, you will be responsible for ensuring the accurate and timely production of high-quality artwork across various media platforms, from print to digital.
You will work closely with the rest of our creative team to bring marketing campaigns, advertisements, and our brand’s vision to life, ensuring that all creative outputs align with our brand guidelines and exceed industry standards.
You will be used to creating visually compelling artwork for a variety of channels including social media, website, email campaigns, and print materials like brochures and packaging.
You will naturally take ownership of artwork production and have a solid understanding of typography, layout, colour theory, and other design principles. You must have excellent attention to detail and a keen eye for design aesthetics.
You will proofread, edit, and format artwork content, ensuring alignment with brand guidelines and the final output is error-free. You should be able to prepare artwork files for print and digital use, understanding the nuances of each medium. Working closely with the design and marketing teams, you will understand project requirements, objectives, and brand guidelines.
Collaborating with other departments to ensure the smooth delivery of projects within deadlines will be key. You will be open to and vocal about artwork based on internal feedback and insights to continuously improve the visual output. You enjoy staying updated with the latest design trends and technologies, incorporating them into your work to keep our brand fresh and relevant.
You will manage your time effectively in a fast paced, deadline driven environment and be able to maintain a digital asset library, organising files and ensuring easy access for team members.
You will be able to demonstrate experience working as an artworker or graphic designer, preferably in a lifestyle brand or agency setting with a strong proficiency in industry-standard design software, such as Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign).
Motion graphics and video editing would be an advantage.
