A brand designer at Companion is expected to be the driving force behind the ideation, creation and execution of branding projects at the studio.
You will work closely with all members of the team, including the digital designers and developers, to bring our clients visual worlds to life.
As a studio primarily focused in the digital space, we work with start-ups and established companies to take them from the seed of an idea through to the launch and delivery of that.
This could range from establishing a totally new company and brand, transforming a brand that’s a bit stuck in its traditional ways or working on design systems and graphical executions for experimental physical installations.
This position would currently not have direct full-time reports, but you would be expected to be involved in the interviewing and direction of any freelancers that are working on the brand phase of a project.
At Companion we have a very autonomous structure where everyone is trusted to create work that they are passionate about. You would ‘report’ to the Creative Director, but this would mostly be in the capacity of assurance and assistance, rather than micromanagement of projects.
Because we are a small team, we try not to introduce too much hierarchy into the studio for the time being. This is a role equivalent of 4+ years experience, but we are happy to hear from anyone that resonates with this description regardless of years of experience.
The pay scale for this position is 35,000 GBP - 60,000 GBP per annum and it will be determined based on an individuals experience inline with London agency market rates.
All submissions will be looked at and reviewed. If there is an opportunity in the immediate future that we think matches, we will be in touch. If not, we will keep the submission on file until an opportunity does become available that we feel is right.
Our interview process is generally two stages — the first being a session for both parties to get to know each other and understand their respective ethos and approach to design, the second being a session focused on portfolio work and meeting with wider members of the team.
In all stages we encourage questions from both sides — it is an opportunity not just for us to ask you questions, but for you to probe us too!
