Graphic Designer
Institute of Contemporary Arts
One of the world’s most dynamic cultural organisations, The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is looking to recruit a Graphic Designer. 

The ICA was founded in London 74 years ago – and our progressive model is constantly adapting to our world today. Our agenda-setting programme continues to position artists and thinkers at the centre of all our activities: as partners, participants and audiences.

The ICA has historically anchored its programme within the socioeconomic conditions of our times. As we face some of the most complex ecological, economic and social-justice challenges ever seen, both nationally and globally, this critical approach is needed more than ever. The ICA is invested in our progressive vision of an organisation where different cultural modes of production – exhibitions, performance, cinema and film, theatre, music, architecture, design and more – support and thrive on engagement with each other.

The main responsibilities of the Graphic Designer are to maintain and develop the ICA’s existing graphic identity across all physical and digital formats, in close collaboration with the Head of Marketing, Communication & PR and the rest of the Marcomms team. The role will also be overseen by the ICA Design Consultant, who was responsible for establishing the current identity in 2017. The goal is to engage a wide range of audiences in the activities of the ICA, drive attendance, sales and membership, advance its commercial ambitions, and to build brand awareness and loyalty.

The Graphic Designer will also be responsible for overseeing and sometimes building web pages, emails and social media formats, ensuring they meet with established and developing standards.

Contract: Permanent, 24 hours per week

Salary: £26,000 per annum

Location: London
