Designer - £18k-25k doe

Reporting to: Creative Director and Managing Director

We are actively looking for a new designer to join our team immediately to work on a number of both existing and new exciting projects.

As a designer at Crème you will be responsible for a mix of creative tasks, from the big and fun to the small and serious. Including taking campaigns that extra mile in post production, often putting design guidelines together to compliment new season shoots and concepts, creating guest fonts and colour palettes and designing lookbooks.

We expect you to be ahead of the curve in terms of forthcoming design trends and have the highest standards possible - it’s in our name after all. You should be able to work within the styles of each of our clients but also know when to push the boundaries, ensuring that they stay current and develop as a brand in terms of design.

We design lookbooks, brand guidelines, design guidelines, motion graphics, marketing emails, print materials, one-off event creative, packaging, bespoke logos and homepage creative as well as creative for social media - our own and for our clients - all of which you will be required to work on.

Both passion and experience within the fashion, footwear and lifestyle sectors is absolutely essential - as is experience of working within an agency. You must be prepared for the way in which an agency works - our office is usually fast-paced and no two days are the same.

In return, at Crème you will enjoy creative freedom on a lot of projects, flexibility to exercise and try out new and varying skills and work in a friendly and accepting atmosphere. There is a lot of scope for personal and professional growth and we often send our team on courses relevant to current work and future projects and we’re not shy in rewarding everyone - whether that’s doughnuts and coffees on a Friday or well deserved progression.
