Job Description:

How&How are seeking a full-time Senior Designer to join our growing global family. You will have raw talent, curiosity and a strong creative instinct—and help us deliver work for our clients which is bold, conceptual and different. You will be a team player who will be generous with ideas and have strong beliefs—loosely held.

You will be the driving force behind creative output, and work in our design team to develop the creative vision of a project. The majority of the creative heavy lifting takes place by you, and it's essential you’re not afraid to get stuck in on all levels of work. Egos get left at the door.

You will need to be comfortable working in various design and illustration aesthetics and have a cohesive understanding of how their frames will translate into animated pieces and design projects. Animation skills are also beneficial but not essential.

Topline: we need a well-rounded, team-player to push our design forwards with brilliant creative ideas, amazing design skills, fastidious attention to detail and smart strategic thinking.

What you’ll do:

  • Bring brand strategy to life as brand expression and help create brand identities and assets for our clients under the leadership of the Creative Director and Design Director
  • Brainstorm initial ideas and carry them through to concept development and visualisations—ultimately taking the expression through to a system based on strategy, principles and final implementation
  • Assist with pitches, and carve creative brand routes from ideation phase to design development and roll-out
  • Be primarily responsible for the visual thrust behind any ideas being presented, but also contribute as much to the strategic thinking and conceptual rationale behind those ideas
  • Be the lead creative on a particular project. This requires you to have the basic skills necessary to manage both yourself and the projects of other designers—leading and inspiring juniors and mids, and delivering compelling work from beginning to end
  • Have your finger on the pulse of current trends in the world of design / art / fashion / creativity / culture and bring that information and enthusiasm for popular culture into the design studio everyday
  • Know when to follow design rules, and when to break them

What we’re after:

  • 6+ years hands-on experience as a Brand Designer
  • 100% credible in our core discipline of graphic design
  • Completely at home working in Figma
  • Deep skills in Adobe Creative Suite: Ps, Ai (ideally Ae)
  • Efficient, detail-oriented, organized, and able to work under tight deadlines
  • Team player that’ll fit into our design-driven, collaborative team
  • Extremely comfortable designing and building decks in Pitch

— Additional tools are a big plus: motion, code, illustration, etc

— Curious about brands and the positive impact they can have on the world

— Interested in more than just design

— Ambitious self-starter who can thrive in ambiguity

— Comfortable engaging with the strategic dimension of our work

— Able to get under the skin of client’s issues, strong on content as well as visuals

— Able to build personal relationships and trust with clients

— Articulate, confident and assertive in presenting work

— Strong creative instincts and willingness to push further through experimentation

What we offer:

  • Salary of £50,000-£55,000 (DOE)
  • Bonus Fridays (spontaneous non-work days for either rest / team building or contribution to our B-Corp Give Back scheme)
  • 28 Day Holiday allocation (including Bank Holidays)
  • £1,000/year Skills & Training Allowance
  • Macbook Pro setup provided
  • WFH set up 1-2 days a week
  • Pro Bono Environmental Studio Projects
  • Transparent Tiered Salary System
  • 2 Week Remote Working Opportunities (timezone dependent)
  • We’re currently working towards B-Corp Status and hope to complete in 2024
