The role

We're looking for someone who is an established mid-weight designer. You'll start by taking full ownership and responsibility for delivering small - medium projects, while working alongside our design team to deliver medium - large projects.

Typically you'll...

  • Work alongside our other designers to undertake a range of design related work

About you

You'll have an abundance of energy, exploding with creative ideas and chomping at the bit to progress your design career.

You'll be ideas focused, keen to learn, happy to contribute and have big ambitions.

Your work will show us that you understand design thinking, designing for audiences, research, strategy and that you know what looks amazing. You'll be able to demonstrate that you can work with existing brands, supporting with design rollout and application.

You'll want to get involved in branding, campaign and website projects, contributing ideas, creative concepts and feedback.

You'll be well versed in the usual design software (we use the Adobe Suite and Figma mostly). Evidence of experience in motion graphics and 3D is a bonus.

You'll be good at writing, and everything about your application will be considered, checked, double checked and triple checked.

You'll get...

  • £24-30k salary (depending on experience) with a pay review after 6 months and then annually
  • 21 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Fully paid time off between Christmas and New Year
  • Flexible working — We work remotely and from our Cardiff Bay studio
  • Great pension options
  • A MacBook Pro and display
  • Long term growth prospects, mentoring and opportunities to progress to more senior levels

Flexible Working

You will be required to work from our Cardiff Bay studio at least 2 days a week, with remote working the rest of the time.

The role is full time and permanent. Our core hours are 8:30am - 5pm Monday to Friday. We have an excellent flexible working policy and we’re supportive of people’s different lifestyles and commitments. We will happily work something out for the right candidate.

How to apply

Email tom@toward.studio with a link to your portfolio (or PDF folio), with 'Design Job' as the subject.

We only want to see killer work, please. No filler. Plus a beautifully typeset CV and covering email of fewer than 150 words on why you're perfect for the role and a good fit for us (make it interesting!)
