(Immediate start)

We are looking for an extremely talented Freelance Creative Director with design skills to join our team on a regular basis to help our clients innovate safely, stop thumbs and stay relevant.


During your time at Thumbstoppers you will be creating...

  • Social-first creative concepts in the form of micro-content/ads designed to stand out in noisy social feeds.
  • Product focused sales messaging - grabbing attention in under 3 seconds.

You will have a number of creative pillars to work with, utilising existing content from various shoots to identify/ideate new 'Thumbstopping' edit opportunities.


  • Happy, passionate, positive and unshakeable under pressure with tight deadlines
  • A good awareness of London based cultural trends and thoughts on how to engage them authentically with brand purpose (Music, Art, Fashion, Food, Film etc.)
  • A millenial focused thinker
  • Demonstrated experience developing bleeding edge ideas into effective content for brave brands
  • It is advantageous if you are *connected* on the creative scene across the sectors above

(Please make sure you can tick these boxes before applying)

  • You have a demonstrable portfolio of 'Thumbstopping' ideation to activation
  • You approach your ideation from a feed-first perspective not an after-thought of lean back ideas.
  • You have strong strategic grounding in social media for millenial audiences. You know what works / what doesn't and you use this as the foundation for your ideas.
  • Confident with presentation/graphic software like Powerpoint/Photoshop/Indesign. Any other tools you feel necessary to 'sell your vision' in the most visual way. (You will be required to make your own presentation decks)
  • As most of your work will involve concept and design to motion, basic editing skills could be advantageous in communicating bolder ideas quickly


We are a boutique social agency and production studio based in the heart of Shoreditch. We are focused on planning, creating and activating social content for the world’s bravest brands.

We love to punch over our weight!

We are proud to count Wonderbra, Pernod Ricard, VICE and Champion clothing as just a few of our major global clients that the successful applicant will be working across.

We work with the best possible talent in London to deliver the best in class social mobile content.

PLEASE NOTE: In the current climate we recieve a lot of applications. Please make sure that your CV truly fits the requirements outlined in the job description.

Unfortunately it will not be possible to reply to every application. Please do not be deterred from future applications if you are unsuccessful this time around.
