You will work directly with our Head of Design, as well as with Heads of key departments for specific projects and tasks.

As the first specialised Communication Designer, you’ll be able to impact the continuous development of our visual brand and how we bring it to life day to day, and you get the opportunity to help establish the Communication Design practice and related ways of working across Spotted Zebra.
