This is an exciting time for DesignStudio. Over the last 12 years we have established ourselves as an agency responsible for brave, strategic and challenging work which makes a true meaningful difference to our clients. We don’t sit still. We keep getting better. In line with this approach, we are now expanding our permanent digital team, starting with a Senior Designer.

We expect you to be the driver of the creative output. A confident storyteller and a stellar designer. You will require flexibility and willingness to apply design-thinking across all stages of the creative process; research, strategy, expression and implementation.
You are passionate about technology and innovation, designing at the cutting edge of what’s possible and embracing emerging platforms in your creative thinking. User challenges drive your decisions, championing UX thinking when solving a client’s challenges. You'll be working with teams and clients to develop design ideas and discover new opportunities.
Generating ideas and interesting creative work with strong conceptual and strategic foundations.
Providing a digital perspective and valuable input across all stages of a project; from immersion to implementation.

Leading the creative output of projects through each stage and overseeing design work to ensure the creative brief is fully explored.
Effectively distilling and communicating direction to the team after client feedback or after internal design review.
Creating high quality presentations and prototypes for internal and external use. Inspiring other designers through creativity, action and mentorship.
