About us

Ten years ago (it seems like only yesterday) we were simply a small group of experienced yet rather frustrated creative recruiters about to launch a brand new business. RedSofa. We were determined to show the world we could do a better job than the competition: and have fun at the same time.

Our philosophy was very simple only hire the very best and watch them and the business flourish. By 2014 we were proud to be acclaimed Europe's fastest growing and most respected Creative Recruitment Agency. A year later we opened our Berlin office.

Of course there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and building long-term personal relationships, but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior art workers to global CEOs. Our expertise in every area is widely regarded as being unequalled. IMPRINT

A bit about who we’re after

You’ll be thoughtful, with a great knowledge of what is achievable on existing and emerging digital formats and platforms.

You’ll be required to concept and oversee multiple projects and to be hands-on in some of the key ones.

Key Requirements:

  • Art Direction – You’re definitely up to date with the latest design trends, both on and off the web. You can execute any style at the drop of a hat. You have a deep understanding of everything digital plus the ability to learn fast . You understand 3D and you’re confident art directing film and photo shoots.
  • Creativity – You’re bold and original. You’re constantly asking questions and pushing digital boundaries. Innovative creative solutions come naturally to you and you can articulate your ideas with the rest of the creative team. You never shy away from a storyboard and you can turn out a handy scamp when necessary.
  • Design – You need to be a great designer, it’s as simple as that. Wanting to use type, grids, pixels, photography, and motion graphics better should be what gets you up in the morning, and your portfolio should show off your excellence in these areas.

Rodger That!

Steve Buss 17th April 2018

 

We can all learn something from Roger Federer.

There are a number of people that I look up to and aspire to be more like, too many to mention on this forum. Oprah Winfrey, Colonel Sanders and Hilda Ogden have all touched my life for one reason or another but Roger Federer stands out for me and I’m more than happy to serve up some thoughts on the Fed.

 

The guy’s a class act from start to finish: Gracious, humble, considerate and the best EVER at what he does. Applauding those around him, never talking negatively about his competitors, never making excuses, the first to congratulate his competition on their success, constantly striving to be better and still on top of his game in the twilight of his playing career.

We can all learn something from Roger Federer.

 

Being an avid tennis fan, I’ve followed Federer since his colossal victory dethroning the previous King, Pete Sampras at Wimbledon in 2001, and his meteoric rise to World No.1, winning almost every competition he played in. Confidence was high for so long and with that, everything seemed easy.

 

When he finally hit hard times with a resurgent Nadal, Djokovic and Murray, Federer dropped down the pecking order and everyone thought that was the last of Roger. He’d had a young family, achieved monumental success in the Grand Slam era and we all thought he’d just fade into the background.

 

Federer was having none of it. Back to the practice courts and with excellent

 

conditioning, selective tournament matches and Grand Slam preparation he proved what a 20 Grand Slam Champion can do to come back and win the Australian Open / Wimbledon in 2017 and Australian Open in 2018 and there’s still three slams to go. He’s achieved this up against some of the very best professional tennis players that ever graced planet Earth.

 

So where am I going with this? I think the point I’m trying to make is that if you’re going through a bad patch in your career and it seems like you’re fading into the background then make yourself relevant again, train, learn a new skill, develop on your existing skills and get out there and prove you’ve still got what it takes.

 

It’s all gone a bit cheesy now. I can only apologise.

But that’s ok. I know I can turn this round and so can you the next time you’re looking for inspiration. Just look in the mirror and repeat after me:

We can all learn something from Roger Federer!
