Baxter & Bailey
The Colour Rooms
12 Richmond Parade
Brighton, BN2 9QD
This is the perfect opportunity for an ambitious and enthusiastic Junior Developer with 1-2 years professional experience to further their career in an exceptionally creative, successful and progressive Brighton-based design agency.
If you’re a digital thinker, innovator and doer looking to work for a purpose-led design agency in one of the UK’s most dynamic, creative and digitally ambitious cities, this one is for you.
Baxter & Bailey is a brand design agency. We’re a digitally focused, multi award-winning and ethically conscious team of eight. If you are motivated by the concept of design-for-good and have the relevant skills and experience – alongside being bright, meticulous, keen to learn and fun to work with – then we want to hear from you.
Brighton-based. Flexible terms. Salary range from £20,000 to £25,000 per annum, dependent on experience.
Founded by Matt Baxter and Dom Bailey in 2012, we’re currently a team of eight people specialising in the areas of brand strategy, brand identity, brand communications and brand environments. We work for all kinds of clients in all kinds of sectors, but we’re perhaps best known for our work in arts and culture, charity and non-profit, higher education and publishing. We’re here to do the work we believe in, for clients we admire. For us, that means brand-focused design and digital communications that make a tangible difference to audiences and a positive impact in the world.
We’ve been around long enough to know that really great things only happen when both studio and client share an ambition to create something of lasting value. The point is to do work that matters. Work you care about. Work you can look back on and feel proud of. If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you.
