Junior Social Brand Designer

Who are we?

Outfly (formerly Idea East) is London’s leading design innovation agency. Over the last 10 years we’ve been disrupting the model of traditional agencies to make something that works for the high-speed challenger brands of today.

We work with innovation wings, social impact startups, entrepreneurs and fast-paced tech companies to help the people who need it most. We do everything from websites, marketing, business plans, pitch decks, video shoots, app designs, product designs, 3D & Moving Image, interiors (lots of designs), copywriting, message aligning, immersive experiences and social media. We don’t get briefed, we get challenged.

What you’ll be doing

With that in mind, we’re looking for a Junior Social & Brand Designer. A recently graduated, highly talented designer and creative thinker who wants to be a part of the decision making process and the why? of a brand, as well as the execution. If you love design thinking and creating well thought out, memorable brands, then this is the place for you. That’s not all though - you’ll also need to be culturally and socially aware of current events and design trends, as you’ll be working with our Head of Social and Creative Director in conceptualising and rolling out social content and campaigns, for our own brand and also our clients.

Add in a keen eye for consistency and quality and you’ve got yourself a cool new role, perfect for someone who wants the space to push their creative boundaries.

Sound good? Phew. Read on...

The skillset you’ll need

To enjoy this role, and succeed within it, you’ll have:

  • Good old fashioned design talent - we’re looking for someone who has recently graduated with a first in a graphic design degree (or similar) and has illustration and animation skills
  • The flexibility to adapt your skills across lots of mediums; whether it’s a workshop, a social media post, an investor deck, an animation, an email, a landing page or an app (and back again)
  • The empathy to really dig into and understand what our clients really need - probably more than they do...
  • The brains to understand complex ideas/briefs and distil them into design that advances understanding / changes behaviour / drives action
  • The confidence and composure to support the senior team in client meetings and workshops
  • Creative software skills to brag about; specifically in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, among others. Knowledge of AfterEffects and Premiere is an advantage.

Basically we need someone who really knows their stuff, to help us up our game and build on an already fantastic team (if we do say so ourselves). More importantly, we need someone who is bored of bureaucracy and wants to grow fast.

What about you?

  • You love innovation, and have:
  • A passion for purpose-driven ideas, entrepreneurship and tech
  • The determination, desire and initiative to work in a fast-paced environment
  • A rock solid conscience and a heart of gold

Perks of the job:

  • Salary D.O.E
  • Benefits (depending on contract type):
  • Pension, Corporate Perks Package, Discounted Gym Membership, Personal Learning Allowance, 20+ days of holiday per annum, being in Europe’s largest tech hub; surrounded by weekly events, coffee mornings and member nights!
  • A badass team that plays with nerf guns
  • Genuine room to innovate and grow.
  • Full-time, contracted 40 hours per week for perm roles. Given the current climate, this is likely to be a temp-to-perm position, once things have settled down.
  • Hours of work are flexible, but average Monday to Friday 9:00am – 5:30pm. Flexibility will sometimes be required to meet business and client needs.
  • Initially remote, but usually located in Europe’s biggest Innovation Hub in Plexal, Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London
