About the company
Huskii Studio is a micro design agency based in Brighton, UK. We work remotely with some days at Platf9rm Brighton (when the pandemic allows!). You’ll be joining as the third member of our team. We have a varied client base but focus on working with other ambitious small businesses and startups to help them engage with their target audiences, grow and create equity in their brands through all channels of communication. Seeing our clients succeed is what really makes us tick and we enjoy being an extension of their teams. We cultivate a straight talking relationship with our clients which is highly valued by them. We don’t miss deadlines and we always stick up for what we believe is right - in design and more widely.

This year we’ve made a commitment that is important to us - to become a carbon positive company and will make monthly contributions through Ecologi to achieve this.

We also value the mental health of all team members - a happy team is a productive, creative team! That’s why we pay for a yearly Headspace subscription for each team member. Our aim is to work hard and finish on time - so extended working hours are avoided whenever possible. It’s not good for us or our output.

We are currently working remotely due to covid.

You’ll need to have space and the needed equipment (desk / chair / monitor) to work at home at least part of the week with a good internet connection. A computer will be provided.
