Senior Designer

Permanent employee, Full-time · UK

The Senior Designer is part of our global Creative team, responsible for designing and ideating printed and digital assets. This role is pivotal in our pursuit of being the most loved brand on the planet, dreaming up and delivering the wildly creative activities that grow our brand awareness, engagement and love.

Based out of our office in Blackhorse ​Road, Walthamstow, ​we are flexible with hybrid working, but to maximise creative collaboration this role will be based in the office at least 3 days a week.
As Senior ​Designer, we'd love to see your creative influence ​shine through daily. ​Here's an overview of how we feel you could make that ​happen:

  • Responding to briefs from our global marketing and sales teams in a timely and creative manner, that both represents our brand and pushes us to new heights.
  • Ideating and executing creative concepts for large scale marketing campaigns which may include out of home advertising, social media content, digital comms and printed collateral.
  • Art directing photography and videography for our products and campaigns 
  • Artworking printed collateral, from event invites to vinyls, packaging to sales collateral.
  • Contributing to regular brainstorming sessions with our Brand and Creative teams.
  • Finding constant sources of inspiration from the worlds of fashion, art and music. Keeping your finger on the pulse in these cultural spaces and bringing the learnings into everything we do at MF.
Within our Creative team, you’ll report into our Design Director, Jess, and will work alongside our designers, a project manager and a copywriter. We’re a small and fast-paced team who love working collaboratively and creatively to produce bold and weirdly wonderful work. We’re not interested in conforming to the “usual” way of doing things and instead we value bravery and uniqueness, in our quest to bring joy to everyone who comes across our brand. 

​Minor Figures is filled to the brim with creative thinkers who are truly passionate about our brand, so the Creative team is a powerful epicentre of that energy!
We'd love to chat to ​people with ​relevant experience working within an in-house team or agency environment and have a strong portfolio of work that demonstrates your bravery within design and strategic thinking. 
Your experience will range from quickly turning around small assets to working on large scale marketing projects and events. You are well-versed in creating both printed and digital assets and you understand the intricacies of these two worlds. 

Ideally, ​you, our next Senior Designer, will have experience art directing small photoshoots and have a willingness to lean in on set. 

You'll be genuinely interested in creating content for social media (video and still assets) and get excited about the fun and fast nature of social media. You have experience with simple animations; a skill that can be utilised for our digital channels, to bring our concepts to life.  

We'd love it if you showcased in ​your application your ability for excellent communicating, a positive can-do attitude and truly see the value of receiving feedback on your work from your teammates, who are creative and passionate about our brand. This is best summed up as having confidence in your work but being flexible when working with others to reach an outcome that completely hits the mark. 

We want to bring someone in who loves the buzz of being in the office working with the rest of the team and won’t shy away from things that sit outside your comfort zone. 

Finally, ​you’ll have exceptional knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign/Illustrator/Photoshop). Skills in After Effects, Premiere Pro, Sketch, Figma would also be beneficial.
We realise that a job is more than just the take home salary each month. So what are you really getting?
