We’re Hiring! Digital Designer

We have an exciting opening for an enthusiastic, highly-creative designer with a focus on digital to join our growing creative team, working on projects for local, national and international brands. 

Our ethos is simple: to create meaningful and engaging work for our clients partners, delivered with heart and soul. We encourage a strong studio culture that feeds creativity.  

This is a unique opportunity for a designer to really take ownership and make their mark on projects from start to finish.

You’ll be expected to take ideas from pen and paper (UX) to executing pixel perfect designs (UI) and interactions (animation). We’ll push you and we want you to push us. 

Whilst this is predominantly a digital focussed role there will still be opportunities to get involved in other areas of design such as animation, 3D and branding.

Before applying for the role please take a look over our portfolio and make sure you’re the right fit for the role and what we do. We don’t want to waste your time or ours.

  • Will be confident and willing to take risks in the name of creativity.
  • Will be a self starter who takes the initiative and can figure things out for themselves.
