What’s it like at Cog?

Cog Design is a great place to work. Our studio has all the things you might expect (including a pool table, a well-appointed kitchen and a cupboard full of fancy teas) and some things you might not (such as an indoor garden and fishpond).

You’ll be working with an award-winning team of some of the most experienced and accomplished creative thinkers and designers in the UK.

You’ll be working with an unparalleled portfolio of clients that includes many leading arts organisations, venues and museums; you’ll be at the heart of the UK’s cultural and heritage sector.

We are a team, not just a group of individuals who share a studio. Everyone plays their part. You’ll be given the freedom to make decisions and you’ll be empowered to implement change. You’ll also receive the support of an experienced team and the opportunity to learn from those around you.

Cog culture

We are a full-time team of ten plus a wide formal network of associates with specialist skills.

We work exclusively with arts, heritage and education clients.

We are an agency obsessed with design and culture; that’s how we fill our days (and nights). We fund a monthly team outing where we review one of the capital’s cultural highlights for our website. And we publish a monthly cultural calendar via email.

We firmly believe in the power of culture to transform people’s lives, and in the role of public funding for the arts. The only work we do for free is on campaigns to raise awareness and lobby for greater recognition in education.

Our clients

One of the key reasons for working here is that you get to work with some of the most important cultural clients in the UK.

Happy clients and ongoing relationships are our most important indicator of success, and the cornerstone of our business. Our clients include the most interesting and exciting arts organisations in the UK.
