As a Creative & Design Coordinator, you’ll get to work across not one, but two fantastic brands, each with their own story to tell. You’ll be working directly with the Founder of Mayamiko and MadeBy_ to  set the creative direction for the growth phase of the company. 

As a design and creative lead you will have the very important task to help create new collections, develop and improve existing products made by our artisan partners, select and source new products from artisans and brand partners in line with our strategy, and own the aesthetic of the brand.

You can expect to be involved with a wide range of important tasks such as managing the overall visual identity of the brands, and helping continuously develop it staying on top of trends.

You’ll be taking a keen approach on product selection and product improvement with a real focus on ramping up the zero-waste approach.

You’ll be chatting and building relationships with very important people to the business such as the pattern makers, artisans and brand partners, partner boutiques and wholesale partners such as Faire and Ebay. 

 You’ll also work closely with other key team players such as the Digital and Social media Manage and PR Agency - this will all relate to setting the aesthetic direction of the brand and making sure the brand ethos and tone of voice translates across all marketing and sales activities/assets.

 There will be lots to get involved with and no two days will be the same! You might even be identifying new strategic partnerships, managing a cool photoshoot or pop-up event or helping manage press events and activities.
