Inside the Company

KnownUnknown was founded by James Sommerville as a platform not an agency. His 35 years of design experience – including co-founding ATTIK, serving as a high-ranking executive at The Coca-Cola Company and working alongside numerous brand and business owners – make him well-equipped to deliver unique perspectives on the future of the creative model that is based on collaboration and learning.

Entry-Level Opportunities

As a network and community-based creative agency, KnownUnknown doesn’t believe in discriminating according to age or experience. When seeking new designers to work with, the key for KnownUnknown is talent. Essentially, the company wants to work with talented designers who will bring a unique perspective to the work they do. Collaboration might take the form of a client brief, or an invite to one of Known Unknown’s speaker sessions, Clubhouse room or a design sprint with other designers.
