Senior brand designer (temp to perm) wanted


Subject to experience + benefits
Join Earnest

Earnest is an independent creative agency. Doing what we do has never been about settling for ‘Okay’. Nor box ticking. Nor making up the numbers.

Instead, it’s about wanting to do something altogether special for our clients – that makes a real difference to their business – and bottom line. It’s about thinking harder and more creatively to develop brands, campaigns and content that can’t be ignored. Engaging the hearts and minds of our audiences. Helping our clients reap the rewards. This passion has translated into a whole host of awards. It’s also helped us attract a fantastic group of clients that share our ambition to never settle for ordinary.

Our work is primarily for the B2B market, but don't let this deceive you – we don't compromise on quality creative thinking and execution. Please see our website for reference.

We are based in central London – the West End. We are open to remote working but while we will not expect you to attend the office on a daily basis, there will be occasions when it is encouraged.
