Our client roster includes Disney, Universal, Sony, Turner, Warner Bros., and Merlin Entertainment and we are privileged to work across a wide range of their globally renowned brands.


We are looking for a new member of our energetic team to support the graphic design capabilities within MXW, focusing primarily on the creation of high-end presentation materials.


The position requires someone who loves producing amazing presentations.

In addition to strong layout and typography skills, the candidate needs to be able to create supporting visuals including photo-real mock-ups, photo retouching and image manipulation.


Experience with creating marketing collateral is vital too; from brochures to HTML invites, event branding to mood boards.
