Mid-weight Visual Designer

Hello, we’re Impero

We’re an independent, award-winning, design focused creative agency.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, The Glenlivet, Havana Club & Chivas, Corona, Budweiser, Mikes Seltzer, Nature Valley, Ugg, Unicef, Danone, and a bunch of others.

We’re pretty good at what we do. In 2018 we won five Agency of The Year(s) including The Drum DADI Agency of the Year. We were also shortlisted as Campaign Independent Agency of the Year. And, this year made it onto the Campaign Mag 100 best places to work.

Next we have our sights set on a D&AD and/or Cannes Lion this year.

There’s about 30 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and do great work.

We’re also 70% female and proudly have 100% pay parity, and it kind of annoys us that we even have to mention that as something that’s unique within this industry.

We gladly do things differently. We ‘re super ambitious, brutally honest and always deliver.

We don’t really like the ‘Old Guard’ of advertising. Working here is hell of a lot of fun.

The role:

Midweight Designers are one of the most reliable designers in the team. You should have a great understanding of the agency’s system, an ability to take on all design tasks, assist or even lead projects independently. Midweights should be organised and show initiative. You should support senior team members but also be able to step up and take over any of their projects if it’s required of them. You will have a hand in most of the projects we work on, whether it’s character creation, content animations or simply bringing our work to life.

Midweights should have sound technical skills, a clear understanding of design trends and an ability to apply different styles across brands. You should have a good understanding of visual design and typography and be able to contribute to concept sessions as well as sell in their ideas clearly.
Most importantly, you must have the same drive as the rest of our team to push Impero to continue making award winning work. You must be talented, ambitious & driven.

Your goals for year one:

  • Work on one project that will win a web award/accolade
  • Be involved in two pitch wins
  • Learn one new design-related skill
  • Receive 90% positive feedback on your 360 peer review
