Bow & Arrow exists for our clients and is made up of a number of tightly knit, flexible start-up teams. Within that there are two core teams that are experts in our professional disciplines - creative and strategy. As a Designer you are a core member of the Design team and are here to bring strategic design thinking and excellent execution to the delivery of every project, injecting fresh energy, proactivity and impact into the journey.
As a Designer you will be:
Working in partnership with Strategy to come up with new ideas and develop creative concepts to deliver against the strategic direction on each project
Carrying out research and design referencing to explore and execute world-class concepts, customer experiences and brand identities
Creating context boards relating to the client’s context: competitors, value, brand assets and guidelines, strengths and weaknesses
Using design to drive impact, create clarity and help enhance the story, narrative or proposition - consistently leveraging the creative process effectively to uphold our high quality of creative output
Inputting into storytelling to create the full proposition and create compelling presentations and workshops, making it immersive and clear to the client
Ensuring all outputs and presentations are designed to a high standard of quality, in good time for client delivery
Interacting with our clients throughout the project - putting together and presenting back the work and answering questions on your own work
Supporting internal initiatives and playing an active role in the intern programme as a whole - from carrying out intern interviews to introducing, onboarding and training interns when they first join to provide them with a positive learning experience at Bow & Arrow
Coaching interns through their day-to-day performance and growth journey on your project, sharing feedback and providing them with a positive learning experience at Bow & Arrow
Taking on a mentoring role with 1-2 interns - creating personal objectives and finding opportunities to achieve them
An absolute must have in every candidate is that they live and truly believe our values of being driven, fearless, striving for better, bringing your authentic self and being generous in all that we do
We look for people with a growth mindset who thrive working at pace with new and complex problems. You’ll love working autonomously as a team, be skilled at navigating ambiguity and adept at challenging your client to think differently
'Design' at Bow & Arrow is an equal mix of creative thinking, and creative execution, so you will need to be able to fluidly work across the spectrum of design, doing what it takes and finding ways to help the work land with impact
As a Designer, you will need to have a solid level of craft, good eye for detail and drive to create world-class execution, using design to drive impact, create clarity and constantly looking for ways to improve and set new industry standards
