I have a new brief for a Senior Designer to work at a design agency based in Windsor. Their work is primarily working with property clients but they also are finding they are working more with clients in other sectors such as retail, food, media etc. and they are trying to expand this side of the business more. They have decided they would like to increase their permanent staff base to ensure consistency for their clients, hence this role coming about. The principle role of the Senior Designer will be to create key concepts for ongoing work and pitches. However, it is important that the candidate is also happy taking on existing projects and adding value without being precious. Teamwork is at the core of this role – within the team and across departments – as well as having the opportunity to develop their skills independently to help create beautiful work. We are looking for a conscientious self starter who is proactive and can work under pressure and at speed. Someone who has integrity and the ability to manage the full range of stakeholders from team members to board level to clients to suppliers. Ability to challenge with conviction, diplomacy and articulation will help. With a strategic approach he/she should have a passion to inspire great design and ideas in a team environment as well as helping to lead, monitor, inspire and develop junior members of the team. This role comes with joining a talented, knowledgable and approachable team where new skills can be learnt within a fun and sociable environment. The ideal candidate portfolio will show thinking from initial ideas through to implementation, telling the story from start to finish (rather than solely the outcome of your thoughts). Candidates should be good at typography and happy with working across brochures/marketing materials, they should have a good eye for detail and be able to demonstrate beautifully laid out work, ideally with previous experience working in the luxury sector - previous property experience would be a plus but is not essential. KEY SKILLS – Strong typographic essential – Strategic approach – Concept generation – Passionate about their job but also willing to listen and learn – Open minded which can bring a fresh perspective to a problem – Good communication skills – Presentation skills EXPERIENCE – An understanding of the basic principals of branding – Layout/typographic skills within brochure work – Property marketing experience (but not essential) – Design for digital.
