Calling All Graduates

Design Internship at Ideas Factory

Our growing studio is looking for an enthusiastic graduate to join the team for an eight week paid internship.

The ideal candidate should have an obvious passion for all things design related. A Graphic Design degree or related qualification. An excellent knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite alongside a can-do attitude and enthusiam. Bags of it.

Extra strengths such as illustration, typography, animation or web design would be an added benefit.

The internship will be paid at £250 per week. Whilst we are not currently in the position to be able to offer successful interns a full time position, we hope this will change in the not too distant future.

Position now filled, thank you.

Double Award Winners

Ideas Factory has won a Gold Award at the 2014 Transform Awards, for our work on the re-brand of Champions in the category ‘Best visual identity from the property sector’. We were also awarded the Bronze for the re-brand of Benham & Reeves, in the same category.

Liz Foggitt, publishing and events manager from Communicate magazine said: “The winners of the Transform Awards are leading the way in brand development and communications. Congratulations to all the winners!"

We're New Here

We're pleased to say that we have two talented new recruits, Andy Summers and George Bradshaw, who have already been making an impression in the Ideas Factory studio.

Andy joins us after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art and a series of internships, starting at YCN in London and ending at Tayburn in Edinburgh, with a stint at two studios in Oslo, Rayon and Anti. Hopefully he won't yearn for the cold again too soon!

George joins us after graduating from University College Falmouth, and 5 years at The District, Cambridge, where he developed great skills and brilliant design experience, which makes him a perfect fit for Ideas Factory.

They're both great designers, and lovely people, and it's great working with them. Stay tuned for some of their work.
