This is a hybrid role spanning both Account Management and Project Management expertise. As part of a small team, and as the only non-designer in the studio, you'll be integral to the day-to-day operation of the business with the potential to help shape the studio as it grows.

You'll be responsible for delivering branding projects across a wide variety of clients and working with the team in the studio to manage multiple workstreams simultaneously. You’ll build and nurture strong relationships with Lantern’s customers, actively seeking opportunities for business development and organic growth.

You'll be expected to...

  • Serve aServe as the lead point of contact for clients within the agency

  • Write proposals, detailed timelines and fee estimates for client projects

  • Ensure creative teams are clearly briefed

  • Manage day-to-day project documentation such as status reports, meeting notes and detailed timing plans

  • Be responsible for the timely and successful delivery of creative projects

  • Set expectations with clients and provide solutions for any unexpected project blockers or challenges

  • Plan and prepare creative presentations and pitch decks

  • Report key revenue metrics to clients and the business

  • Work with the financial accountants to ensure billing is up to date

Main requirements

  • 4+ years experience as an Account Manager and/or Project Manager at a reputable branding agency

  • Demonstrable ability to communicate with senior client stakeholders

  • Solid experience with Keynote, MS Office, Google Docs and project management tools

  • Ability to be calm under pressure and juggle multiple projects at a time, whilst maintaining sharp attention to detail

  • Excellent listening, problem solving and presentation abilities

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

Our culture

As a small, growing team, our culture is very important to us. We're underpinned by values of creativity, integrity, quality and humility.

The studio is lively and fast-paced so you'll need a good sense of humour, an open mind, and a work ethic in line with our ambition to maintain a world-class design standard. As a YCN member agency, there are regular training and speaking opportunities, as well as talks and events, to help you develop both personally and professionally.

We're a social bunch too – so we're looking for someone who's as comfortable working hard on a pitch as they are enjoying a ping-pong battle or post-work pint. 

Our environment

We're based in London Fields, at the heart of the capital’s emerging creative scene. As a member of WeWork, you'll have access to a range of benefits including free beer and cider on tap, regular events and offers from brands including Fitness First, Babylon health, Gympass and Busaba Eathai.

Toasting a thriving night time economy, new report designed by Lantern

Night Time Economy by Lantern.png

Lantern designs this year's drinks industry report, helping urban centres create a successful, safe and vibrant night-time economy.

An exciting and attractive night-time economy is important for many towns and cities across the UK. But it must be safe, well managed and welcoming for all members of the community. Alcohol-related anti-social behaviour is often a problem, ruining a buzzing high-street atmosphere . The report sets out steps and guidance, based on the experiences of two successful towns, for businesses and authorities to nurture and cater their night-time economy to everyone from teenagers to pensioners.

We were commissioned by think-tank, BritainThinks to create an engaging design to present the report both for print and online. In line with the report, it was important to showcase a thriving evening scene made up of a variety of businesses and activities, not just focusing on bars and pubs.

The result is a bustling street that features on the front and back cover as well as an accompanying theme that is thread throughout the document. Iconography and full page infographics were designed to help communicate the findings, which could also be used in presentations and on social media.
