About the company:
Huskii Studio is a micro design agency originally based in Brighton, UK and now working remotely and located along the south coast. You’ll be joining as the fourth 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.
Last year we made a commitment that is important to us - to become a carbon positive company and will make monthly contributions per staff member 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.
Our team is spread out across the south coast in Brighton, Worthing and Brockenhurst.
You’ll need to have space and the needed equipment (desk / chair / monitor) to work at home with a good internet connection.
You’ll ideally be located within commuting distance of Brighton or Brockenhurst to work together with the team at least once a month / for meetings when required. Some financial support with occasional coworking office costs will be offered depending on individual circumstances.
No recruitment agencies please.
