A heavy focus and passion for design within the fashion and lifestyle sector is key. 

The work is extremely varied - from design for retail environments to editorial design and larger ATL campaign development - the agency produces work across all the retail touchpoints.

  • Work closely and collaboratively with Head of Creative, the design and copy team, traffic, producers, strategists and account handlers
  • Manage, direct and mentor junior members of the team
  • Take the design lead on campaigns and projects, being able to delegate where necessary and confidently presenting to other creatives, account handlers, Head of Creative and sometimes to clients
  • Manage the pressure of tight deadlines and busy schedules working on multiple projects simultaneously as required


  • Genuine passion/background in design for fashion and lifestyle
  • Up-to-date knowledge of design, retail and cultural trends
  • Have management/mentoring experience
  • 7+ years' experience in similar agency or in-house environment
