Senior Graphic Designer, EMEA – London

WANTED: We are looking for a mighty graphic design Jedi to take creative ownership of Unruly’s Brand and elevate it to the status of art. You will be part of a small but super talented design team, each one with unique talents (a bit like the Avengers) and will be reporting to our Global Brand and Creative Lead.

As our Senior Graphic Designer you will be responsible for the creation of the most insanely awesome pieces of design in the print and digital world that will put all other tech companies to shame.

You should have a broad knowledge of design, as well as be able to conceptualise and execute the most out-of-the-box ideas for our many initiatives, both internal and client facing.

We are looking for someone with a wide variety of epic projects already under her/his belt, with an absolute hands-on approach and high skill levels in branding, UI/UX design, experience design and print production. Equally important, we need a high energy, ego-free personality who understands and embraces teamwork and the value of feedback/criticism by turning it into opportunities to create even better pieces of collateral.

If successful, your work will be displayed across the globe via over 20 offices and over 350 employees worldwide. Cool, right?

So… are you optimistic, good-humoured, A-class team player? Are you passionate about the Internet/memes/geek culture? If the answer is a resounding “Hell yeah!” then please send us some examples of what you’ve done, as we’d love to know what makes you Unruly!
