Responsibilities

We are looking for a Senior Graphic Designer to join our talented and growing creative team.

To be accurate, we are looking for a mature [read: seasoned, no hand holding], creative [out-of-the-box] thinker; nay Artist who excels in all things design [photography, product design, videography, packaging, editorial content, and dare I add… web design].

You are looking to experiment and push your skills to the next level. You have an eye for design and a strong appreciation for interior design and beautiful homewares. You understand that things aren’t always #000 and #FFF and that your campaigns are based on ROI and success metrics. You personally believe in the saying, “Real artist ship”.

Here, you won’t be asked to design logos, banners, flyers, or wireframe mockups daily. There will be no external client asking for spec work. You won’t be asked to “design” anything in a Microsoft Word Document. If you love Comic Sans and Papyrus, we’d probably not get along.

Reporting to our amazing Director of Design, you’ll collaborate with the Product Design & Marketing Team to produce innovative and creative solutions for digital and print, social assets, infographics, email marketing campaigns, website assets, and even create products and packaging across our soft furnishing business. 

As part of a growing start-up, you will be spearheading multiple creative projects and will be expected to explore your ideas and creations at a fast pace, carry out customer research and project testing sessions to test your prototypes, and iterate until the product is ready to be shipped to our customer base, AND ensure a compelling product experience both online and offline, with inspirational merchandise presentation and assortment. Big words for big shoes to fill. We are looking for a Senior Graphic Designer to join our talented and growing creative team.
