We’re looking for a Graphic Designer with a minimum of 2 years’ experience to join PROPER’s award winning, in-house Creative team. As a close-knit team of 3, we are responsible for injecting colour, imagination and flair into everything that leaves PROPER’s door. And with a hunger to be bigger and bolder than ever before, we are now on the hunt for a brilliant creative mind to help make it happen.

The person:

This role is perfect for someone with a shed load of energy, passion and enthusiasm, keen to make their mark on one of the UK’s most exciting food brands. You will be delivering projects from start to finish, so it is essential that you are as brilliant at coming up with creative ideas as you are at executing them. PROPER pride themselves on their relentless creativity and nailing the little things that make all the difference, so a meticulous eye for detail is key.

The role:

You will be 1 of 3 designers helping to shape PROPER’s visual identity. We do absolutely everything in-house so your role will be a real mix of:
- Packaging concepting: coming up with creative concepts for new flavour and product launches.
- Packaging artwork: creating artwork files for new flavour and product launches.
- Content and campaign ideation: coming up with creative ideas for always-on social and campaign spikes.
- Campaign execution: bringing your and the team’s vision to life through meticulously set-up artwork files.
- Content creation: Shooting and editing digital content.
- Designer across all day-to-day creative output: including all internal and external comms (web banners, magazine ads, presentations).

Requirements:

- Minimum 2 years’ experience in-house or in a creative agency.
- Excellent creative portfolio demonstrating brilliant/challenger creative thinking and a strong understanding of layout and typography.
- A portfolio that has a clear synergy with PROPER’s aesthetic, including a solid eye for colour.
- Entirely proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign. Experience working in Premiere and After Effects is advantageous.
- Confident photographer and editor. Experience working in video is also advantageous.
- Meticulous eye for detail and lover of craft.
- Keen interest and awareness of visual culture.
- Confident in communicating and presenting ideas.

About PROPER:

Cassandra and Ryan launched PROPER seven years ago, cold-calling and packing boxes of popcorn from their living room. Since then, we’ve grown into one of the fastest growing independent businesses in Europe and the number one premium popcorn brand in the UK. Our passionate team continue to have even bigger and better global ambitions, so there couldn’t be a better time to join this incredibly dynamic and creative company.

Last year, we were awarded the “Best Brand to Work For” by Creative Pool. Our canal-side office is home to our team of 35 and several other ambitious start-ups. A 10-minute walk from Angel and Old Street, we have an in-house chef who makes us breakfast and lunch and you’ll get unlimited holiday after 2 years at the company. Goes without saying you’ll have an unlimited supply of popcorn as well!
