So here’s the deal… If you’re the most enthusiastic, charming and downright brilliant designer out there or just have the appetite to create a truly great brand and web application user experience, we’ll give you a possibly career-changing job based in our London or Cape Town offices working with a great tech start-up. The immediate focus is a 2-3 month production cycle to create the Minimum-Viable-Product (MVP) web application, and marketing material, but we’re interested in long-term contracts or permanent roles, as we believe in fostering talent and keeping great teams together.
