An ambitious digital marketing agency based in Cornwall and Marlow are looking to add a creative, forward-thinking Digital Designer to the growing team, with proven agency and client-facing experience across both UI and UX design.

Job Description

The successful candidate must be able to showcase a portfolio of intuitive and engaging website designs and digital marketing assets (display banners, social posts, social media ads, etc.), as well as the ability to take ownership and manage the entire process, from concept to delivery - moodboarding, wireframing, concepting, responsive design, etc.

The successful candidate will be a Digital Designer hybrid who will hit the ground running.

First and foremost we’re looking for a progressive and energetic Digital Designer who can fit seamlessly into fast-paced agency life. Naturally we expect outstanding attention to detail, a keen eye for razor sharp design and someone to champion creative design across the agency.

An understanding, passion and proven experience of both UX and UI design is a must. We pride ourselves on creating websites with user experience at the forefront of our designs. The successful candidate will have the ability to confidently talk our clients through our design decisions and principles.

To complement the creativity and design curiosity, the successful candidate will also have the ability to competently handle client communications, alongside managing project timelines and key deliverables/milestones. 

The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively alongside the wider internal team of Account Execs/Managers and Developers, ensuring the end product we deliver to our client’s is both on time,  and of the highest quality.

Essential requirements:

  • Proven and demonstrable agency or client-side experience as a Digital Designer
  • Understanding and ability to demonstrate UX design principles
  • Portfolio of responsive website design projects
  • Portfolio of moodboards, wireframes and concepts
  • Competent with Adobe Creative Suite
  • Ability to design marketing funnel landing page, hero banners and social media ads
  • Ability to work within brand guidelines and be confident in presenting work to clients
  • Clear understanding of the entire website process (from project ‘kick-off’ to ‘launch’) - and the role wireframing, concepting and responsive design has within this process
  • Ability to unpack a client brief and design websites to challenge both business and UX objectives/KPI’s
  • Ability to work directly with clients and the wider Account team and manage not only the design process, but also the project timelines when needed
  • Ability to communicate professionally with clients, stakeholders and the wider internal team (Account leads and Developers) is essential
  • Ability to provide creative direction to a wider team of Creatives - inc. photographers, videographers and copywriters 
  • The ability to prioritise tasks (across multiple projects) and manage your own time is essential
  • Work towards tight deadlines - pro-active, punctual and well-organised
  • Passionate and enthusiastic - confident in nature, with the ability to discuss and justify your design concepts with clients 
  • Willingness to go the extra mile - to deliver original, unique and truly beautiful website designs
  • A people person - a cultural fit, with an honest personality is everything!

Desired requirements:

  • Ability to design in Sketch
  • Design of emails/newsletters
  • Concept and creation brand guidelines
  • Logo design
  • Offline/print design
  • Understanding of WordPress

If you’re the kind of Digital Designer who wants to grow with an agency, take ownership of the creative process and treat the business as if it were your own, then we would love to hear from you and see examples of your work!

Company Description

We’re an ambitious team of digital marketers with expertise across media, design and technology - spread across two offices in Marlow and St. Ives, Cornwall.

Over the past two years we’ve seen significant growth, expanding from a team of 4 to 10. Our journey began specialising in the aesthetics, medical and health industries, however a recent partnership with a branding agency has seen us enter the retail space.

We now successfully manage a portfolio of retail websites across the UK and Europe, to add to our existing client list of over 20 clients.

We offer the following services to our clients:

  • Responsive web design and build
  • Multi-channel digital marketing campaign management (SEO/PPC/social/email/programmatic)
  • Content creation (inc. video, photography and copywriting)

For many of our clients we’ve not only designed and built their website, but also continue to work with them across digital marketing retainer contracts. As such it’s important that the successful candidate has an understanding of the ‘bigger picture’ when designing creative solutions - the digital marketing landscape and our client strategies.

Not your typical agency, we like to think we were ahead of the ‘new way of working’ pre-Covid curve. We understand work-life balance is key to a successful, happy team (and life!). Below are some of our staff perks:

  • We offer flexible working hours with the ability to work from home (within reason)
  • Unlimited holidays (within reason)
  • Yearly training allowance of £500 per employee
  • Yearly allowance of £100 for self-development (not work related)
  • Two company away days/weekends per year - one summer, one winter
  • Referral scheme - £500 if you refer a successful candidate who joins the team
  • We want to create an environment people love to work in, so new joiners will be given £100 to make their mark in the office
  • Friday lunches

Other Application Details:

  • Salary is negotiable - we’re looking for the right kind of people to join us and are willing to pay above market rate to find them.
  • We’re a flexible team. Currently we work 1-2 days in the office and 3-4 days from home.
  • As long as the work is done to a high level we don’t mind where you are!
