Freelance Designer - NewEdge Studio

NewEdge Studio is a recently founded Brand & Design Studio that exists to take entrepreneurs, start-ups and aspiring scale-ups from idea to identity.

Specialising in Brand Identity, we deliver branding to small businesses throughout the UK, working closely with founders to educate them in the importance of brand, before delivering the full suite of creative assets they need to get their business off the ground and form a highly compelling Brand Image.

We’re young, energetic and like to work with real, honest people on brands and businesses that can make a real difference in the world.

We’re looking for freelance design support to help us scale our offering, in the hope that as we grow, you’ll grow. A background and previous design experience is essential and a strong interest or track record in Brand Guidelines & Design will be highly preferable.

What you’ll do

  • Work with our lead strategist to create Brand Identities for start-up and small business clients.
  • Create logotypes, colour palettes, font guides, illustrative assets, product mockups and any further initial assets necessary for our clients.
  • Produce formal Brand Guidelines documents for handover to the client.
  • Produce web and social assets for the Brand’s marketing channels.
  • You’ll be fully involved in the design process, communicating with the client, taking on feedback and ensuring our work matches their expectations.
  • Support with the growth and development of the NewEdge brand.

What we’re looking for

  • A designer with a portfolio that spans across the different mediums of Graphic Design, with a varied range of previous clients and with examples of Brand Identity throughout.

  • A well grounded background in Design and Brand Design in particular.

  • Someone with a flexible working schedule. We’re not expecting you to say yes to work for tomorrow, but when we agree on a deadline we expect it to be met.

  • More than capable of producing any necessary assets, and fully fluent across the full Adobe Creative Suite.

  • Someone living in London, or close enough to London to commute, and comfortable meeting and working together in-person when appropriate.

How we work

  • We don’t have a permanent office space, but we enjoy working in person together where possible, from cafes, co-working spots and the occasional pub.

  • We often work across numerous clients and projects at any one time, and we expect you to be able to do the same.

  • We’re flexible to suit our clients needs. This sometimes requires travel to and from their offices to visit them, carry out meetings and conduct our workshops.

What we can offer

  • Day rates of £250 upwards, depending on experience and the strength of your portfolio.

  • The chance to lead branding projects and add exciting small businesses and start-up clients to your portfolio.

  • An opportunity to, when feasible, become a core part of the NewEdge team as we grow our studio in the months and years ahead.

To apply, please email your portfolio, either a PDF or link is great, to [email protected]. If your portfolio catches our eye, we'll be in contact to arrange a call/coffee soon.
