Company Description

Working at Nixon

Nixon Design is an award-winning agency specialising in branding, website development, graphic design and copywriting. For over 20 years, we’ve created powerful marketing that shapes the future of businesses throughout Cornwall, the UK and Europe.  

You’ll be joining a vibrant team of 14 (including developers, designers, content experts, project managers and brand strategists), with a range of experience, backgrounds and interests. We offer all the usual big employee benefits such as employer contributions towards your pension, 24 days of holiday (plus bank holidays) each year, as well as smaller perks such as fresh fruit and a 4pm finish on Fridays to enjoy the weekend early. 

We’re keen that our team members remain at the cutting edge of industry developments, and are very supportive of those who’d like attending or speaking at conferences. You’ll have access to a training budget as well as in-house peer-to-peer training, and we’ll develop a training plan to actively encourage you to develop the skills you’ll need to progress and further your career. 

Our open-plan studio is on the top floor of a historic converted warehouse in Hayle, west Cornwall, just off the A30 and conveniently close to the train station and the beach. There’s a bar and restaurant downstairs, and shops and parking nearby.
