Our new headquarters is in the Bristol area, however you will ideally be based within an hour’s travelling distance of one of our offices. We currently have main offices in the UK in Bristol, Plymouth, Edinburgh, and in Europe in Berlin and Brussels. 


We offer a mix of home and office working because we believe both are necessary for a high performing team. We know you need some time to concentrate and avoid constant commuting, so homeworking is essential, but we also feel face-to-face time is important too. 


We work in a Hybrid way with ideally 2/3 days per week in the office and the rest of the week working remotely. We also offer flexible working options to help find the right work-life balance for you. 

Next Step…Send us a link to your portfolio, your CV and a cover letter telling us what you’ll bring to Sponge. In your portfolio, we would like to see your personality shine through the best examples of your illustration, graphic design and user interface designs.
