Location: London, UK

Quinine Design is hiring a senior retail designer to join its team in London.

About Quinine

We are a leading retail experience consultancy. We work with product and service brands by transforming existing or designing new retail environments. We focus on creating face-to-face experiences that work effectively for the business, the brand, the customer and the staff.

Based in London we work internationally for world-leading product and service brands including Comcast, EE and Fido.

We are looking for an outstanding senior retail designer to join our team. The role is ideally suited to either an ambitious mid-weight designer looking to take their next leap or a recently established senior designer looking to take on a fresh challenge and continue their growth within a new team.

The successful candidate will be a strong and creative design thinker who can conceptualize and craft appropriate design solutions in response to client challenges. You will be equally comfortable getting your hands dirty in the design delivery stages of the project.

The role

As the main point of contact with the client, you will be a clear and compelling communicator with an ability to understand the clients’ situation and needs.

Sharing a leading role in projects you will have the ability to handle multiple tasks at once and be comfortable managing meetings and calls with suppliers and clients. You will be comfortable in all three of Quinine’s key disciplines, research, strategy and design with a particular strength in design. You must have experience in all design phases from concept through to delivery.

You will be able to work at a variety of scales, just as comfortable working on a store-wide aesthetic as you are detailing a store fixture. You will excel in design exploration, problem-solving and idea creation. You will be comfortable working through design challenges independently and be confident in presenting back solutions that are thoughtful, robust and considered, to project teams.

A natural collaborator, alongside developing your own point of view, you will embrace other team members’ opinions (from creative director to junior designer), always striving for the best solution to a problem.

You will be used to creating inspiring concept documents and building up accurate, error-free, detailed design drawings. You will be expected to manage and organise all project files and assets.

Skills and experience:

  • minimum of five years’ retail design experience in a design agency or in-house design department
  • excellent organisational and interpersonal skills
  • fluent in Vectorworks, Adobe Creative Suite and good working knowledge of Microsoft packages
  • experience in Cinema 4D would be advantageous

Personal attributes:

  • be a positive and inspiring team player
  • able to work successfully as part of a team player
  • motivated and reliable
  • able to build great relationships at all levels across the studio both internal and external
  • outstanding work ethic
  • ability to manage own time and be results-driven
  • be a problem solver with a can-do attitude
  • willing to get stuck in with whatever is required

Remuneration will be commensurate with experience and abilities. This is a permanent position and open to anyone based in the UK who is able to be in London two days per week. There may be times when the candidate will be required to travel abroad.
