We’re on the lookout for exciting, innovative freelance designers with experience of UX and digital design. 

We’re a small team so are looking for people who are open to working in our London office from time to time and being a temporarily-integrated part of our team (though we’re happy to balance this with remote working). Ideally we are looking for web designers who are comfortable with developing the UX side of things as well as creating beautiful designs. Our projects sometimes require tight timings and swift design work but that doesn’t mean we can’t challenge briefs and come up with original, intelligent ideas.

Our web builds are almost always on open-source platforms (primarily WordPress and Drupal) and we always take an audience-centred approach to anything we design. We’re looking for people who are comfortable thinking mobile-first and who know that responsive sites are a given. You could be working on a campaign microsite to encourage behaviour change, or a full web rebuild for a social-change organisation.

An open mind, fresh ideas and willingness to work flexibly with our team, our developers and our clients are all important to us. Sound like you? Get in touch today with some examples of recent work:
