Senior designer / Art Director

at onefinestay in London

At onefinestay we’re redefining the experience of city travel: guests get to live like a local while the owner is out of town, with a service that offers all the convenience and comfort of a hotel.

We are scouting for a superlative designer to take onefinestay’s graphic content in hand. Comfortable working for print as well as digital, they’ll be the type that struts through Adobe Creative Suite like they own the place (after all, it is where they’ve spend most of their student and professional life). But underneath all that sophisticated flair is a devastatingly high attention to detail, an innate affinity with our brand, and a diligent work ethic.

The brief is to build our visual identity and editorial content as one of London and New York’s hottest boutique brands. We want to have in-house team at HQ who can meet the design needs of our expansion – picture highly motivated teams both side of the pond, requiring expert graphic assistance on all sorts of output for all sorts of audiences. To impress, or even satisfy, you'll be expected to carefully stitch every pixel and pantone.

We’d like a candidate who can think of themselves as a master tailor. You’ll take rough cut briefs and turn out haute couture garments - to extremely tight deadlines - enabling onefinestay to be perfectly dressed for each occasion. And above that, you’ll relish the challenge and freedom of our current format to direct our visual content in the right direction, winning senior management to your way of seeing things.
Emperor’s tailors need not apply.
