The Head of Design Role:

At Five by Five, we want to create work we can be proud of. Work that we would enthusiastically talk about, share on our socials, and stick up on the wall. For us, that’s the benchmark of outstanding work.

We're independent, fiercely ambitious, and growing, which is why we need a Head of Design to join our team.

As Head of Design at Five by Five, you’ll lead a multi-disciplined team in creating work across a portfolio of brands. You’ll lead our growing team of designers and digital media creatives and help them craft not just their creative, but the way they think and design. You’ll work across our full portfolio, give feedback and design critique on all the work; ultimately, you're accountable for the design work that leaves the agency.

Our Head of Design is responsible for motivating, inspiring, and developing the design team, so they can produce the best work possible. Regardless of how long you've been in the game, there's always new stuff to discover and be inspired by. You'll bring the outside in and show the team what's possible (or impossible!) so they're always finding new ways to add value to our clients and pushing creative boundaries.

Your design eye, standards, craft, attention to detail, and perception of what looks good, is paramount! You’ve worked at some of the best agencies and not only have you seen what ‘good’ looks like, but you’ve also been integral in its conception, demonstrated by an extensive portfolio showing a range of work over a variety of mixed media.
You'll have a passion and desire to grow and develop the team around you and will be an experienced people manager. Your expectations will be high, but your approach is collaborative and authentic, we don't tolerate egos here!

In the UK, we have offices in Southampton and London which we're looking forward to getting back to. You could work from either, but in the meantime, your kitchen/bedroom/lounge will have to do.

About Us.

We are an independent creative agency with offices in London, LA, Sydney, and Southampton.

We work with ambitious brands to ensure their audience remembers them and buys them. Brands like B&Q, Activision, Dr. Vegan and Tequila Patron.
