BuroCreative

BuroCreative becomes Without

BuroCreative becomes Without®

BuroCreative has changed its name to Without®.

Without® have created and enhanced brand identities for some of London’s best-loved businesses – from category-defining Mexican restaurant Wahaca, to luxury health club Third Space. The re-brand reflects a greater focus on transforming businesses by creating brands that challenge the status quo.

Influential consumers are disengaging from traditional corporate communications. Without® helps clients to speak to the growing group of consumers who identify with experiences, stories and founders.

Without® (formerly BuroCreative) was founded in 2006 by Philip Koh and Roly Grant. Specialising in brand identity for food & drink, leisure and luxury businesses, Without® have worked with clients including Wahaca, Marcus Wareing Restaurants, Wedgwood, Caravan and Third Space.

Creative Coordinator

Much more than a ‘project manager’, this is the opportunity to shape the fortunes and behaviour of one of London’s emerging design studios.

BuroCreative is an independent design studio based in Farringdon specialising in brand identity for food & drink, luxury and leisure. Academic, analytical, artistic and instinctive, we help transform businesses by focusing not on clients’ boardrooms but on their real-world customers.

We’re looking for a highly talented Creative Co-ordinator to become the heart of our studio, planning and ensuring the delivery of excellent work at every level. A focal point between clients, suppliers and design teams, you’ll be confident in speaking at senior level, turning enquires into sound proposals and robust project plans and ensuring work is executed to your timelines and budgets.

With a bird’s eye view of studio activity, you’ll have the power to allocate resources and influence behaviour. You’ll be a leader who pre-empts problems, hates loose ends and has an eye for detail. You’ll provide the structure on which truly great creative work is founded, working closely with a small, talented team who appreciate organisation as much as creativity and welcome ideas from all areas of the business.

Competitive salary dependent on experience, private healthcare, bonus and training schemes, open plan environment, breakfast Mondays. Reply to careers@burocreative.co.uk with CV and a completion of the following: “I would be the perfect Creative Co-ordinator because…”

Phone off, kettle on, pyjama time

An exciting week wraps and we look back on the launch of Yawn, our first collaborative project:

A super-cosy identity all about relaxation; our first collection built around “the ultimate pyjama”; hand-drawn prints by BuroCreative’s Katy Smith and Peter Ryan; our very own e-commerce site www.loveyawn.com; a cracking shoot by Sam Robinson; some fantastic stockists, including Fortnum&Mason and Fenwick Bond St; great early reaction: “Bliss” said the Evening Standard.

See the case study here.

Here’s to a relaxing weekend…
