As a designer, you probably think visually, so before the bullet points – here’s a picture for you.
We asked several designers what they’d put on their ideal job description and this is what most of them said:
- Being given the chance to think and work creatively
- Freedom to sketch raw ideas on paper
- Working on global brands
- Space to work on your own ideas
- Illustration – characters, infographics, iconography, diagrams, artwork
- Creating visual identities and building brands
- Designing concepts for responsive websites and apps
- Collaborating with colleagues on a daily basis (in workshops, brainstorms and in the pub)
- Blogging, tweeting and dribbbling creative thoughts
- Using the rules of design to create great visuals
- Breaking the rules of design when creativity demands it
- Playing in all the wonderfulness of Adobe Creative Cloud/CS6>CC
- … on a new Mac (with a Wacom tablet)
- … in a design studio with lots of natural daylight
Sound like the dream? Well then you’ll barely be able to contain your excitement to hear that this is EXACTLY what we have in mind for the new designer we’re looking for to join our team.
Send over your portfolio (and a memorable cover note) to inspire us to call you in for an interview. You could be doing all this with us everyday and also bag yourself:
- 24 days annual leave – plus UK public holidays
- A generous training and career development budget
- Regular supply of design publications (Smashing Magazine, .NET Mag, Computer Arts etc)
- Regular team socials
- An ‘inspiration’ day off work every three months (which we usually spend in an inspiring place in London)
- Presents and drinks on your birthday
- Small, close knit team of colleagues
- An employer genuinely interested in YOU and your CAREER
Make sure you send us your best work examples, URLs, Dribbble/Twitter profiles and details of your availability and salary requirements.
Needless to say we’re not going to be entertaining any recruitment consultants on this brief – self-motivated creative types only please!
