  • Familiarity with modern Javascript (ideally exposure to ES6 and React) – comfortable with vanilla JS rather than just jQuery
  • Experience using front-end build tools (e.g. gulp, yarn, webpack)
  • Comfortable working with templating languages (e.g. ERB) within a full-stack web application (e.g. Ruby on Rails)
  • A passion for creating beautiful, simple experiences to help users achieve complex tasks
  • Familiarity with web standards and best practices for fast load times and accessibility
  • Understanding of SEO and marketing analytics best practices
  • Great interpersonal skills and an open attitude to collaborating daily with designers, marketing colleagues and other engineers

£75,000 - £80,000

A few short words

You – Associate Creative Director and master copywriter? Think big and write well? Apply fast. Stand tall, write short. Put high-powered words in very high places. Be a highly placed hyper-creative not a hyperactive. Show you’re familial, familiar with family tone, with a sharp mind that wears talent lightly.

One of the most renowned global accounts at one of the most recognised agencies is creating a new role, an Associate Creative Director who will work directly with the established ECD and existing, award-winning creatives to run with recent success. Do you have, or are you ready to take on, this kind of role? If you’re a naturally positive person, inspiring with your ideas and able to demonstrate writing for family- or kids-oriented tones of voice then this could be ideal. It’s a great role. Find out if it’s yours.

The Agency

The potential new home is a global consumer engagement agency, experts in building brands through a sophisticated mix of interaction, experience, creative technology and product creation.

This role is part of a huge injection of enthusiasm and resources, including senior leadership hires, internal structure tweaks and technology investment.

The Work

Projects and deliverables are varied. The key is the family-oriented nature of the client’s brand and your crucial contribution to that. More specifically, however, you’ll:

– Help to lead the conceptual team, inspiring with your own idea generation and analysing team campaign ideas

– Write copy for campaign, brand and tone of voice guidelines

– Write campaigns, promotional, packaging, social media, email and website copy, plus in-store material

– Develop in-depth relationships with designated senior clients, acting as overall brand guardian

A Bit More About You

– FMCG experience, including working with family brands and delivering copy that connects to kids is essential

– Ideally an award-winning creative

– Insight-drive brand building ideas across multiple channels

– Experience working with licensors and third parties, e.g. film/content licenses, is ideal but not essential

Senior Designer

West London, London

Permanent

£50,000 - £51,000

+

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Are you a senior designer tempted by a new role on an award-winning team? This is a senior designer gig with an enviably elegant, award-winning agency. The work is mainly design-led branding, content & positioning for world-class tech companies seeking to outclass sleepy competitors. These people manage to be professional without forgetting how to have some fun, with design and each other.

WHAT WILL I DO?

As a senior you’ll join an effective existing design team, a mix of seniors and not-quite-seniors with artworker support. The team produces a muscular variety of classy branding, identity, web and content projects that tend to emphasise design innovation and digital integration. If you get a place here, you’ll design across multiple channels from concept to final deliverables, so promoting your hands-on technical skills as well as Art Director chops would help your application. The Adobe suite tools are vital of course, but any additional expertise with After Effects, Cinema 4D and Premier could be significant as well.

NOT PURE DIGITAL, BUT VERY DIGITAL FRIENDLY

This isn’t a pure Digital Designer role (although they are recruiting for that profile too, so get in touch if you are one and haven’t seen that ad). However, the entire agency leans digital, so a book of thought-provoking, beautiful work that is heavily digital in format is the best way to impress here. Experience in prototyping and testing design ideas, as well as obvious core general design principles is very important. Proven experience creating and delivering design that works across responsive web packages is equally so.

HOW MUCH BETTER WILL I GET?

Progression is important. You’ll almost certainly acquire or develop more technical skills, as well as tuning your leadership and mentoring instincts. There are no total beginners here, but guiding more junior designers and specialist freelancers enhances your abilities as well as theirs; Senior Designers who can lead projects teams or grow into someone that will is crucial to this role.

HOW ELSE CAN I IMPRESS?

– Decent branding experience

– Plenty of passion, not only about how things look, but how they work and feel.

– Impressive cultural awareness, strong at producing content for social media.

– At least 5 years experience working in a digital creative agency.

– Experience of art directing photographers.

– Familiarity with industry standard UX and UI design and prototyping tools; Sketch, Figma,

Adobe XD and InVision, Zeplin…

If this role, or roles like it, are interesting to you then please get in touch to discuss. Your profile won’t go directly to the client, so if your book is strong enough or may be suitable for multiple roles that RedSofa represents, you’ll have a chance to discuss finer points in detail as we move forward.

Senior Designer – Digital & Branding

London

Permanent

£45,000 - £55,000

+

Who we’re looking for

Our ideal candidate is a multifaceted creature who has two qualities in greater or lesser parts; They should be a big thinker who can bring new ideas to the table and a great designer with a natural flare.

We’d expect an excellent standard of execution from any Senior Designer in our ranks. They should have skills for mark making, look and feel development, typography as well as visual system work. The successful candidate

will be able to apply these across a range of touch points including digital, environmental and print comms. Audiovisual, 3D or spacial skills a big bonus but not essential.

They need to be fluent in ‘brand’ and comfortable with strategy’ conversations, not just graphic design. In addition to this we’d really like an ideas person or an experimenter, someone who likes to use their brain to develop concepts, tackle tricky problems, decode communications, or play with words. As part of this they should understand how process contributes to different kinds of outcome, how the user experience is a consideration of the design process, and how their work impacts on people in the real world.

Attitude and temperament are crucial: we’ve no room or an over-precious prima donna or a 9-5er. That said, we do work hard but are not a sweat shop. Someone who is happy to have their ‘comfort zone’ pushed, and to work positively (with support) in unstructured and fuzzy situations will get the most from working here.

Our new team member will need to be a proactive selfstarter articulate, pragmatic, reliable and ‘grown-up for ‘their age’.

What experience will they have (ideally)

We are looking for the right person, not the right experience, but as a guide they’ll probably have a minimum of five years experience, ideally some of which

should have been spent in a top agency/consultancy or smaller scale ‘studio’ outfit.

They’ll have already worked on larger size, longer running projects and proved they are a good team player. Ideally, they’ll also know how to take a job forward to repro and print and have contributed to ‘digital first’ type projects too. Audio-visual experience (scripting/storyboarding identity presentations and brand story films) would be a bonus, but are by no means essential.

App developer – contract

London

Contract

£350 - £400

+

I am looking for a backend app developer who can bring an interactive project for a luxury spirits brand to life.

The project is to create a standalone self contained app, native to Apple iPads that will operate as part of a sales tool. The app itself will use a bottle as the main feature, which when touched at various points will reveal text, video content and imagery. The flow of interaction will be scripted and should last for a maximum of 2 minutes. So the overall experience needs to be animated – almost a fly through the bottle with interactive touchpoints (we are looking to create 3D files of the bottle). They will provide a storyboard of the key frames and actions that the app will need to deliver.

The back end developer will need to take the assets created by the front end designer and turn it into a self contained iOS app (i.e. not reliant on internet access). This app will then be provided to the local sales teams to install onto their iPads.
