Middleweight / Senior Designer and Studio Manager

2016 has been a year of growth with some significant new business wins. We’re proud to be gaining international recognition for our pioneering design work for the ageing population, and we continue to push the boundaries and strategic benefits of great brand design.

We’re looking to boost our team in Edinburgh with a Middleweight / Senior Designer who demonstrates a depth of industry experience bringing 3D environments, or brand identity, or digital, to life.

You’ll need to share our commitment to designing change, delivering impact and effectiveness. And you must be able to offer us something special that builds on the skills and expertise of our current team.

We’re also looking for a Studio Manager to keep us all on track – you’ll be working in the thick of it, taking control of work flow, budgeting and managing freelancers and logistics along with some marketing and client liaison. You might be a marketing graduate or already have some agency experience. Part time considered.

For both positions you’ll be exposed to a diverse range of challenging projects. And you might like to volunteer on the Care Van with us and you’ll be welcome to join us in Yoga on Wednesdays.

Please contact us by email only to and tell us what you can add to the future of StudioLR (with examples of your best three pieces of work), along with your salary expectation.

We really look forward to hearing from you.hire

Inspiring Minds – Q&A for Lucymss

The best advice I ever got “Be yourself (because everybody else is taken). Never try to be something you’re not, or do things in a way that’s just not you.”

The worst advice I ever got “To be successful in the design business you need to free pitch.”

Don’t underestimate The commercial power of great design.

Don’t over estimate That what seems obvious to you won’t always be obvious to others.

My golden rule Challenge convention.

My biggest influence My parents, both architects, whose influence gave me a sense of purpose, a sense of humour and a healthy social conscience.

The smartest business idea I’ve ever had Developing design that addresses the challenge of an ageing population, ‘The Silver Tsunami’.

The experience that taught me the most That anyone can run a marathon if they really want to. Anything is possible.

The leader I most admire and why Current thought leaders I most admire: Sir Harry Burns, Blair Enns, Josh Littlejohn – they have all given me something great to think about!

What I am reading and book(s) I would highly recommend Right now I’m reading ‘More Human’ by Steve Hilton – designing a world where people come first. The book I would recommend everyone reads is ‘The Pigeon’ by Patrick Suskind.

And in my presentation I plan to talk about: – Challenging convention through innovative design – Case Study: design for an ageing population, the journey so far.
