You’ll need to be a team player with a positive attitude and a great sense of humour in order to work within the Scribbler brand and tone of voice.

Key responsibilities include:

- Producing high quality, original designs and illustration for card and other product ranges in keeping with the Scribbler brand.
- Designing in a range of visual styles in response to set briefs.
- Copywriting; coming up with new lines for cards.
- Collaborating with the rest of the design team to deliver own-brand card and product ranges.
- Keeping up-to-date with the latest and emerging design trends.
- Artworking and proofing designs to a print-ready outcome.

Skills required:

- Excellent proficiency in Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign.
- Keen sense of humour and understanding of the Scribbler brand/tone of voice.
- Hand-drawn/digital illustration skills.
- Ability to juggle multiple tasks, work to tight deadlines, and have excellent time-management skills.
- Ability to use initiative and work independently when required, while also being able to take direction on specific tasks.
- Flexible design approach and ability to accommodate for regular constructive feedback.

Salary DOE.
