  • This role is very visible, so articulation of design principles and conceptual ideas is vitally important, both to internal stakeholders and with clients.

Desirable Experience

  • Branding agency experience beneficial
  • Editorial or print design experience beneficial
  • Aware of, but not the implementation of, development techniques (e.g. jQuery, HTML5, CSS etc) in order to achieve their creative vision

We promise to challenge you daily to grow both professionally and personally. You will be supported by the Creative Director, and will be fully encouraged to grow your skills in a continuous learning environment. This can span from training and developing skills to growing your profile in the industry, doing speaking engagements, and being supported to get out there in the world.
