As a Senior Designer, you’ll be taking the design lead on a range of projects, working across a number of socially important topics to bring to life our installations, experiences, websites, presentations and more. This is a diverse and hands-on role, working closely with the rest of our creative team, developing and applying concepts across physical and digital outputs.
We are looking for somebody who loves working on a creative project from concept through design to production and delivery – thinking big and creative while being super organised and paying attention to the details. Projects might include designing a new installation about women’s reproductive health, or creating a fictional game to support public dialogue on climate change.
About The Liminal Space
The Liminal Space is a purpose-led creative studio that uses art and design approaches to build understanding, participation and social action. A combination of a creative agency and a think tank, we are a multidisciplinary team on a mission to empower more people, more profoundly to contribute to greater positive social and health outcomes.
We work with clients and organisations who are excited about taking a new approach to engaging audiences, generating research insights and solving strategic challenges. These include some of the country’s top universities, independent funders and government bodies including organisations such as The Wellcome Trust, Nesta, The Francis Crick Institute, The Health Foundation, The Barbican, The Natural History Museum, UCL and The University of Cambridge. Recent projects have covered topics ranging from mental health in key workers and improving the way NHS teams manage Covid-19 to sustainable shopping, the future of work, the ethics of gene editing and a blueprint for the museum of the future.
Our work translating some of the toughest issues facing our society into tangible objects, spaces and experiences that people can relate to and interact with has led to us being shortlisted as Emerging Design Studio of the Year 2020 by Dezeen, and receiving a Wellcome Trust Sustaining Excellence grant.
