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

About the Client

We’re creating a new Product team to develop the next generation of our apps. If you have mobile product design experience we’re interested in getting to know you.

Our apps will be constantly evolving over the coming years as we add more advanced data science functionality. We’ll need to design non-intrusive ways of tagging faces and gathering feedback on the photos we’ve selected so that our models can improve over time.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR FROM YOU

A UI/UX mindset with 4+ years in mobile app design.
Attention to detail is critical for this role. If you have a passion for leaving no-stone-unturned, you’ll feel at home with us.
Ideally, you have worked in a startup before and are excited by the ability to influence and not afraid of the associated responsibilities.
You like working things out first by sketching on paper rather than going straight to Sketch or Figma.
You enjoy analysing data to make decisions.
You take the initiative to get results and don’t wait for instructions.
You have an instinctive knowledge of Apple’s iOS Human Interface Guidelines as well as Google’s Material Design.
You have professional experience of working with developers.

YSL open a ‘gas station’ beauty pop up in the desert during Coachella

Steve Buss 11th April 2019

YSL Beauty announces a one-of-a-kind pop-up experience appearing on Route 111 this week for Coachella. Located in the heart of Palm Springs, the YSL Beauty Station mimics a gas station, offering much more than fuel and your typical road snacks.

Prior to walking into the space, you won’t be able to miss the towering lipstick sign, vintage convertibles, a tours bus and bright pink gas pumps located outside the station. Furthermore, decorative heart-shaped balloons reference YLS Beauty’s Volupte Plump-In-Colour.

The brands first-ever beauty station, pop-up shop and content creation set will be open to the public. Stop by on your Palm Springs journey for the ultimate YSL Beauty experience: discover the latest YSL Beauty Looks, receive make-up services, customise your very own YSL lipstick and be the first to see their next launches.

The pop-up store sits behind the YSL Beauty Station, as it coincides with the launch of the label’s newest makeup essentials. The space houses four areas: one dedicated to the Touche Eclat Radiant Touch pen and the Touche Eclat High Cover Radiant Concealer, one to the Rogue Volupte Shine moisturizing lipstick and Volupte Plump-In-Colour lipstick, one to Tom Pecheux’s Palm Springs makeup looks, and finally one to the Make It Yours station where you can customise your favorite YSL lipstick.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to play with an exclusive makeup vending machine and a virtual mirror that allows you to try on over 50 shades.

So if you’re heading to Coachella this year and need a refresh on your beauty look on your way out to the desert. Then pull off the road at this YSL installation pop-up, stocked with favourite beauty items from the luxury line!
