Senior Designer

  • Chancery Ln, Holborn, London, UK
  • Full-time

Company Description

Leo Burnett is where great, big, populist creative ideas happen.

These are the sort of ideas that get us excited, the sort of ideas our clients want, and the sort of ideas that we believe actually work. This has just always been the Leo Burnett way but, recently, we’ve really turned up the volume...

Over the last two years, Leo Burnett has evolved to deliver these ideas through one of the most innovative service offerings of any creative agency in London.

In fact, for the last four years, Leo Burnett has consistently been in the Top 10 of Campaign’s New Business Wins League Table. And most importantly, our creative output has never been better.
In fact, according to AdAge, Leo Burnett is now the most creatively awarded network in the world.

It’s this distinctive approach, combined with our passion for populist creativity and restless pursuit of ex- cellence, that makes Leo Burnett such a uniquely special place to work. This person therefore requires the same ethos, and must be capable of working independently across multiple briefs and design for all types of media.
