Read on as this could be a great opportunity for you!

The Role;

Your Creative Process:

Designers are given the freedom and space to play, there are client deliverables to meet within the Creative Process but how you get to these is up to you.

As a Junior Designer, you will be contributing to the entire lifecycle of a project, from concept through to completion, working directly into a Lead Designer and working closely with the wider Design Team, Production Team, and fabrication partners. This role requires a conceptual thinker that can confidently articulate their ideas and bring them to life in a diverse range of spaces.

The Creative Process:

Phase 1: Discover - Understanding the brief, the client, and the space. Researching themes and narratives to inspire the designs.

Phase 2: Design - Working as part of a team to create concepts derived from the chosen theme for the space. They call these idea cards, they are loose, sketchy, and conceptual. The chosen ideas are then refined further.
