  • Minimum of 8+ years commercial experience working in a creative agency.
  • Your portfolio demonstrates a varied design background, with examples of print, packaging, experiential and digital design.
  • You have strong typography and layout skills.
  • You have a fantastic eye for detail and craft.
  • You are an excellent communicator with the ability to present ideas and concepts back to stakeholders.
  • Participate in all visual design stages from concept to review final artwork designs.
  • Mentoring junior members of staff and leading by example.
  • Prepare storyboards and presentations where needed to effectively communicate concepts and design ideas.
  • Approach design briefs with unique and brand led ideas that bring simplicity to sometimes complex design problems.
  • Helping to shape the brand look & feel by setting design guidelines and best practises, ensuring consistency across all channels and executions and departments.
  • You have a passion for visual storytelling, photography and brand design.
  • You are highly organised, with great time and deadline management skills.
  • Work with the local markets to encourage closer collaboration with work that is produced outside of the studio and by local freelancers.
  • You are a creative thinker, and able to translate strategic and marketing needs into beautiful brand work.
  • You approach design briefs with unique and brand led ideas.
  • You are an expert in Adobe Creative Suite (for both on and offline), Sketch, HTML, CSS and associated technologies
