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

Designer (Advertising for youth brands) (11932)

London

Permanent

£28,000 - £32,000

+

Job Description: Mid Weight Designer

Our client is an independent creative agency with a singular focus: they create big brand ideas that engage under 30’s

They work with brands that need to be relevant in the world of culture, media, technology and consumer attitude; ambitious brands who can’t afford to get it wrong with their most important audience.

They are entrepreneurial by nature and understand that to get the best out of your people, they need the best culture. So they invest in it. And in you.

Every team member benefits from their training and development programme, which they run in consultation with industry organisation The IPA. They are currently working towards Gold accreditation.

They also believe their team is the best, because they work at it. In addition to monthly Show + Tell nights, where they share and celebrate great work over a few drinks they also have annual Christmas and Summer parties which have taken them to the cafe bars of Paris, the ski slopes of Meribel, the clubs of Ibiza and in the last 12 months, to Copenhagen, Secret Cinema’s Bladerunner and the Bake-Off tent.

Most of their people have some kind of creative side-hustle going on, and they love that about them. They’ve got artists, designers and entrepreneurs all over the shop.

So, they’re supportive and down-to-earth but they’re professional and as a team they’ve got their act together.

Yes they’ve got some big clients and won some awards but there’s more to them than name dropping and gong-hunting.

They have been listed in Campaign’s Top 5 Places to work, which demonstrates their long-term commitment to their culture and the future career paths of their people.

They are growing rapidly and need inspired creative people to join their tight studio team.

Who are you

As the Mid Weight Designer you will be responsible for creating and delivering the visual aesthetic of the agency’s varied roster of clients.

You’re already an excellent designer, someone who can problem solve and create new ideas rather than just layout and execute. You’re going to creatively steer the output of contemporary brands specifically targeting culturally savvy under 30’s around the world so you need to know your audience and what they’re into. They’re not looking for cookie cutter ad-agency gloss, they want your authentic style to inform their output.

You’ll be big into the execution, love the ins and outs of Adobe’s finest and be able to go from concept board to finished artwork effortlessly.

You must be highly organized and process driven. No-one likes a messy desktop. Especially not on Mondays. They’ve got hard drives coming in at a rate of knots and you’ll share responsibility for looking after them and keeping track of files on the server.

You can multi-task; they’re always busy and no day is the same.

So, you can adapt and adjust to changing circumstances. Some projects take weeks, some need minutes, you’re comfortable with it all.

You’re a proper team player, you’ll get lots of support but you’re self-motivated enough to crack on by yourself, and you also back yourself to not only fit in with their team but to add to the culture.

You’ll be working at the heart of a highly creative, motivated team, delivering the best work of their lives and there will be people to inspire you and people who expect you to inspire them.

Your Experience

Junior / mid level in a creative/design agency
Fully Experienced in the Adobe Creative Suite, including and understanding of Design, Editing and Motion Graphics.

Must Haves.

We are looking for people who match their values: –

Brave
Smart
Spirited

Lateral thinking, they’re not your average network giant.
Adaptable and flexible, they’re all hybrid.
Ambition – for yourself and the agency, they’re going places.
Positive, happy personality, because everyone else is.
Calm under pressure

Package

Basic salary £28/32K depending on experience and talent
25 days holiday (to include time taken off during the annual Christmas Close, which is 4 days)
Birthday taken as an additional holiday day
Healthy body, healthy mind fund: 1% per annum of salary allocated per employee, to be put against their wellbeing – gym membership, Santander Cycles, massage, fitness class, bike purchase et al
Pension
Private Healthcare
Travel insurance

Start date: ASAP
