Visionary graphic designers who are open to new challenges, step forth. We are on the hunt for talented creatives to help bring our brand to life on page and screen.

The Company

In June 2018, we will make history by launching a category-defining vaping device in the UK following four years of intensive development. AYR is a vaping solution like no other. AYR mimics the ritual of smoking whilst dispensing with the harmful aspects that come from burning tobacco and our aim is simple; we want to move as many people away from smoking cigarettes as possible. We believe that AYR is the first vaping device that people will want to be seen with. Put simply, AYR looks amazing. But AYR is so much more than a beautiful object. AYR connects with your smartphone and gives the user full control over their vaping experience. AYR measures intake and even enables them to quit nicotine altogether through our own range of flavour formulations. In short, AYR is very special and our product team is working hard to polish and perfect AYR ahead of launch.
