Is this the best middleweight design job in Britain?

Spring is an ambitious, innovative strategic communications design agency in the beautiful, bright seaside town of Southwold, Suffolk. Spring’s work grows businesses and helps to regenerate communities, and our talented, close-knit team is driven by a clear ethos and common purpose. 

We’re hard working and results-focused, and balance this with a healthy, friendly culture in our glorious seaside environment. Southwold's close to London, but closer to Amsterdam, and there’s a great way of life up here with our huge open skies, great food and drink, and beautiful coast and countryside.

Our work ranges from complete branding programmes for businesses and places, to engagement projects for utilities businesses, to digital design and implementation, and everything in between. Last year the designer you are replacing hand-illustrated wine labels for a brewery’s vintners, delivered a brand identity roll out for a cultural organisation, designed a brand identity for a risk management business, helped win a pitch for a national youth charity and created a water-based fairground, amongst a host of other projects.

We’re now looking for a middleweight designer who is ready to develop their existing skills by working autonomously and with senior creative staff on a range of projects. You will be a creative designer, with a broad set of design skills, capable of taking projects from conception through to delivery. You should be a self-driven individual with enthusiasm, loads of ideas and an undeniable drive to deliver work at the highest of standards. You will be a key member of the studio team, reporting in to the Head of Creative.
