Job Description

Background

At This Place, we help companies create meaningful customer experiences, and build the teams to make them real. We’re part strategic consultancy, part design agency.

We work for brands we believe in, across digital and physical, channels and countries. Our projects are varied and dynamic, spanning the spectrum from advisory to execution.

Join us to progress in a place without working silos. Across our studios, in London, LA and Tokyo we come together to share ideas and ideals. Balancing purpose and profit, giving back to our community, and pushing for B-Corp certification. A place where your voice will be valued, where you’ll be stretched to succeed, and where you’ll be proud to put your name to your work.

Welcome to your next place.

This Place.

The role in a nutshell

We are on the hunt for the next member of our design team and are looking for a well-rounded, Senior Digital Designer, that leans towards product design. Our work covers many bases from digital products, apps and websites, to enterprise software and branding. If you like to get stuck in, creatively solve problems, and get stuff done, This Place is the place.

The role in detail

As Senior Digital Designer, you are a key part of the Design Team at This Place. Your role is to execute and lead design deliverables that form part of large projects, or to lead small to medium projects with supervision.

The majority of your time will be spent delivering client work, where you will be given autonomy in your day-to-day work, supported by one of our Design Leadership team members. Outside of client work, you will support business development and internal projects.  

We are looking for a driven individual who is seen as a design expert and whilst you have your area(s) of specialism, you can confidently get involved across any part of the design process. Whilst you are not responsible for the growth of accounts, you have a positive impact and build relationships with individual clients... This is a role that involves working closely with the design leadership and the rest of the design team to help shape the outcomes of our projects and client work.

When not on client work, you will be involved in a mixture of activities including supporting or leading internal projects, contributing to business development, contributing to our culture and diversity initiatives, and focusing on your professional development through learning opportunities.
