Creative Director

We believe in liberating potential

Are you at a career crossroads? Maybe craving to be part of something more exciting and rewarding? If you're standing at the precipice, and wanting to jump into a bold exciting new pond, then come be a big fish and swim with us.

At JDO, we believe in liberating potential. Whether that’s a brand’s potential through design or a creative’s career in our studio.

We strive to make life better by improving the way things work, look and feel through effective design. Design can change how we behave and consume, and if done well, design has the power to change a brand’s fortune. We also apply this belief to our people. We want to liberate our own potential and yours.

We currently have an opportunity for you to build our JDO London studio, recruit your own crew, and join our Senior Leadership Team. You will need to be a masterful ‘change the world’ creative, with a strategic curious mind, commercial nous and an ability to create best in class, award-winning designs. Experience of working on the world’s biggest brands in the world’s best design agencies would be a significant benefit but not a must have. You will need the ability to deliver your creative work with a mesmerising showmanship that can command the room, whatever the audience - from wide-eyed interns to global VPs. Your patter matters. As does conceptual thinking, inspirational creative direction and ‘roll your sleeves up’ attitude.

If you've got what it takes, and want to lead a high performing global agency on the ascent, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.

 

 

 

Design Director

A leading role in our senior creative team

Working with skill, craft and agility, you will already have solid evidence in your portfolio that you have the requisite skills to work at this upper echelon - that you can grasp the big picture, creating big ideas, pushing creative boundaries whilst swooping in on the detail with highly finessed craftmanship. You’re an engaging, articulate presenter, never settling for second best and learning new insights and skills with each and every project experience. We’re particularly interested if you have designed for the beauty, skincare, luxury and beverage sectors. This is a fantastic opportunity to take the next step in your fast-track career.

People talk a lot about culture these days. We genuinely invest a disproportionate amount of time in ours because we believe a happy team is a more creative team. We’re fiercely independent, choosing to work on brands that inspire us, and offer a creative democracy to all our designers, giving you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.

You’ll find out more when we meet.

All roles are primarily based in Tunbridge Wells with a requirement to work in our newly-opened London studio from time to time.

Senior designer

You will be a vital part of our senior creative team

You’ll already have some excellent experience under your belt working in one or two of the world’s top branded packaging agencies and you now want to be stretched and challenged to continue on your fast-track career trajectory. Your portfolio will showcase stunning case studies, which prove that you know how to work smart and deliver effective strategic, creative solutions. You will have worked independently on projects, and as part of a team. You will thrive in a tough yet dynamic and stimulating environment. You should have enough hands-on experience to realise that the world is getting faster and you will need to work at pace, without compromising the creative result. If you’re looking for some headroom whilst still having support and guidance, then come and have a chat with us and find out more.

Designers

Join our award-winning creative team

JDO is a boutique, award-winning agency working across a portfolio of global clients, and we're dedicated to design that moves people. It’s a mantra that’s seen us launch and grow brands for world-wide clients across luxury, lifestyle and corporate branding.

We're looking for passionate and talented graphic designers to join our friendly, fast-paced studio in Tunbridge Wells. You'll have a proven track record of super-creative ideas, and the ability to craft them into polished gems. You'll be personally passionate about branding and packaging, a proactive problem solver, and be confident in understanding client and production constraints. You'll also display flexibility, good time-management and a willingness to muck in when up against a deadline.

As part of our close-knit family, you’ll be joining a talented bunch of individuals united by loving what they do, and together, be responsible for creating best in class creative work.

Do you fit the bill? If so, drop us a line with your CV and tell us why you’re the right person for the job.

Product Designers

Junior to senior 3D product designers with branding experience.

JDO isn't a typical branding agency. In fact the J, D and O are all product designers and between them they've designed everything from Bols to BMW. As a result we think about things differently and we're looking for people that do the same. 

Fancy taking your 3D design beyond a sketch and into the real world? We insist on smart thinking, gorgeous design and flawless execution. A drawing ability is a must, but your skills can't stop there. At JDO you'll push the boundaries of technology to turn your creative thinking into beautifully executed reality.

This is a really exciting opportunity to join our family and make a genuine difference in a non hierarchical environment where talent is recognised and rewarded.

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

  • Global design experience crafting high quality solutions within a creative environment.
  • Strong portfolio of work that demonstrates expertise across product design and 3D branding.
  • Experience and aptitude for leading and mentoring other designers.
  • Exceptional drawing ability, an innate understanding of 3D and production techniques and an understanding of a 3D software package or two.

Cinema 4D Visualisers and Animators

You'll need a stunning eye for composition, lighting and material execution, with a technical understanding and  passion for bringing branded ideas to life.

Visualisation is so much more than a visual. So many great ideas can fall by the wayside due to poor execution. We don't just illustrate designs, we complete brand presentations, and the level of finish and consideration we apply are key to our approach; God is in the detail but he's also surrounded by flawless beauty.

The successful candidate will be responsible for turning brilliant designs into stunning visuals. We don't stop at the still image, so you'll also need a passion for animation, or at least a keen interest for us to show you the ropes.

This is a really exciting opportunity to get in at ground level and be part of a growing team of visualisation stars.

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

  • Great modelling, lighting and texturing skills, with a basic ability - or at least an interest - in animation.
  • Good knowledge of Cinema 4D or similar, and ideally experience in After Effects or Premier.
  • Experience working with the latest versions of Illustrator and Photoshop.

JDO Internship programme

JDO welcomes new blood for both our thriving UK studio, as well as our client servicing & project management department. We offer opportunities to work on real live briefs, as well as giving guidance on the industry. We try to make these internships structured so you can learn as much as possible about the design and branding world whilst you are here. It’s our mission to cultivate potential, as well as kickstart your career - you are the industry’s future stars!

If you would like a paid placement with us for two weeks during university holidays, please get in touch. We also try to offer accommodation although this is not guaranteed and is dependent on availability.
