“We’re a small agency but we’ve got big mouths. It’s not because we’re brash and garish; we’re unafraid”, states Cliff. The self-promotional gear we’ve sent out over the years reflects our personality and zeal to challenge expectations.
Are you a graphic design graduate, looking to further your skill set? Welcome to our graduate scheme. Firedog interns spend between six to eight weeks with us, familiarising themselves with our branding values and learning how a creative design agency functions. Unlike some agencies, we don’t want you here to run errands or make tea all day long.
Let us take you on a safari through the innermost workings of life at 43/44 Hoxton Square. Bumping into Jarvis Cocker in the courtyard, staff being mistaken for celebrities and peculiar client requests feature among the daily occurrences at Firedog. Here’s an overview of what it’s like to work with us, tightly packed into a nutshell of one day.

“In just one year at Firedog, I learned more than in my prior three years at university”, claims Sebastian Housden, while Ross Davison describes social occasions at Firedog as “legendary.” From our passion for hard, honest work to having a little fun and letting our hair down, the Firedog team has always had spark.
Our key business values reflect our conviction that the most constructive and dynamic business relationships are built on a shared system of beliefs. We aim to take an intelligent yet adventurous approach to creativity, thriving on the challenges thrown our way. Want to hear more about what Firedog alumni have to say?
