Job description

We are Luna 9 — Creative problem solvers on a mission to connect people through design.

We named our company after the first satellite to successfully land on the moon; breaking new ground and relaying information that shaped how people viewed the world.

Since our launch last year, we have worked on some amazing briefs for clients across a range of sectors, all with the same goal – to bring clarity and engagement to their communication. We do that through immersive digital design, interactive documents, infographics and animation. We’re getting more and more requests for projects with a strong digital focus, so we’re keen to increase our capacity with a designer who’s experienced and passionate about web design.
