Job Description

About Us

DutchScot is an award-winning creative design studio, based in the new Design District in London.

We believe in creating surprising and intelligent design for fascinating individuals and brands. Our work is guided by strong creative thinking that runs deep below a simple and striking surface.

We provoke big questions and define clear strategies to establish a set of essential truths that bring purpose and clarity. Working closely with our partners, we tirelessly reimagine and refine to craft something both natural and uncommon that stands apart.

Regardless of size or budget, we love immersing ourselves in a project, ignoring conventional opinion and the usual short-term thinking to discover new possibilities and directions that buck trends and deliver long-term change.

We are a small passionate team with diverse skills and experience – working across all creative disciplines and areas including culture, technology, beauty, property, education, hospitality, fashion and charity.
