We’re hiring!

Sail are about to take on their first full time team member. As a start-up, we are a progressive studio and the valued addition will be a strong part of the culture and growth of our studio. We are built on strong values of social change—we don’t just create ‘nice work’, we create meaningful work, building movements that have real-world impact. We work across arts, cultural, non-profit and commercial sectors for progressive clients.

Our work encompasses graphics and identity, packaging, environmental, campaign, print and digital in an experimental, open and creative idea-led way.

We are looking for an energetic person that shares our values and passions of culture, curiosity and social change, with an awareness of the impact of considered design and communications. We have an excellent package available for the right candidate including an autonomous and experimental work environment, a place to grow, shared vision and competitive benefits.
