Job opportunity for Graphic Design Students

We’re looking to bring in a junior designer on an ad-hoc basis to help manage some of our workload. This will primarily consist of things like delivering iconography, graphics, digital illustrations and logos that we can then incorporate into our client’s projects. Any additional skills like coding, motion graphics, etc. are very beneficial and will result in more work being passed over.
A bit about us –
We’re a small, agile team (primarily working between Bristol and London) that mainly works with early to mid-stage startups (usually around 5 projects at a time). Due to this, it’s really important that the person we bring on board is very responsive and can deliver high-quality work to tight deadlines (it can be a pretty fast-paced environment).
A few quick examples of some of our recent and current projects (to get a flavor for the type of work):
1) A mindfullness/wellness app founded by a Milan-based fashionista who’s worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry and was in Time’s top-20 list for the fashion industry multiple times across her career.
2) An educational app that’s going to be used by one of the largest financial consultant companies in London.
3) Branding + website design & development for a London-based product design studio who work with companies like Google, Nike, and Samsung.
I hope that’s enough to go with! If any of your students are interested, could they please link their portfolio, or some recent work examples (Instagram, Flickr, etc. is all good) to nathan@fullfrontaldesign.com

Our goal is to bring beautiful photography books to a much wider audience with a fairly tight brand aesthetic.

We are looking for a talented, super-enthusiastic book-mad designer to join the five-person growing team at Hoxton Mini Press in our brand spanking new offices. The role is specifically for production design in print:

This is also an organisational role which will see you work closely with our in-house production controller, creative director, photographers and repro houses to make decisions about layout and materials and sequence.
