59 Productions is an award-winning design studio and production company based in London and New York. Our focus is on ‘story driven design’ – finding new ways of telling amazing stories through innovative design.
Our team of artists, architects, designers, writers, producers and technologists have helped create countless exciting and diverse cultural moments around the world: the video design of the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the design and creative direction of the record-breaking David Bowie Is exhibition, the design of the historic projection-mapping artwork on the Washington Monument for Apollo 50 – Go for the Moon, the design and delivery of the VR Documentary Grenfell: Our Home, as well as a number of ’total design’ projects in which 59 takes responsibility for auditorium design, set design and creative concept, such as MIF’s Invisible Cities
We are committed to improving the way we work across all areas of the business, including Sustainability, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging and Universal Design.
Like many other organisations, we are considering with renewed focus what Diversity means to us. What may have been acceptable a short time ago is not sufficient for the future, so we are dedicating a lot of time and resources to creating a workplace where everyone feels valued and respected, especially those who are often excluded or underrepresented.
So, if you feel that you do not see yourself represented either in the cultural sector or in this particular professional area because of any part of your identity that makes you special, we would especially like to hear from you.
Festival UK* 2022 will take place across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It will deliver a programme of ground-breaking new commissions with the ambition of reaching millions; bringing people together and promoting the UK’s creativity to the world. Ten creative projects have been selected following an extensive R&D programme and rigorous assessment process to form the Festival’s commissioned programme.
Led by Chief Creative Officer, Martin Green CBE, a new organisation, Festival 2022 Ltd, has been established in Birmingham to curate, manage and promote the Festival; working with strategic delivery bodies within each nation to devise, deliver and commission the programme. The Festival will demonstrate the important role that creativity plays in our lives, as well as providing unforgettable experiences. This investment comes at a time of need for sectors impacted by the global pandemic and will support the creation of work and jobs.
We are looking for a creative and flexible content & social manager to tell our stories across channels and projects, helping us grow the 59 Productions brand and deliver an ambitious digital strategy for our Festival UK 2022 commission.
