TED’s guide to what a Middleweight Designer does round here….

If you’re at the point in your career where you’re itching to take your creativity to the next level, while also looking to take on more responsibility, then a Midweight creative position at Ted could be just the ticket.  

Reporting to the Head of Creative, a Midweight creative role and responsibility at Ted is to engage our valued customers through unforgettable and unorthodox ideas that always embrace our brand’s quirky sense of humour and British roots.

To be a middleweight graphic designer, Ted specifically needs: highly creative ideas, polished executions that meet our ‘quality control’ standards, strong attention to (design) detail, an eye for applying finishing Ted touches and a high level of finessing.

 He/she must be a fast worker and excellent at multi-tasking, with the ability to turn a project around quickly with no loss of quality whilst delivering to highest possible standards. Ted wants you to show that you are ambitious, enthusiastic and self-motivated with excellent communication skills… that you are able to challenge a brief… and to demonstrate that you have the talent to deliver fantastic creative ideas that are absolutely right for the Ted brand and therefore engage Ted’s customer!

Overall, Ted wants to meet a talented, experienced, enthusiastic and self-motivated designer – someone who has a creative and commercial mind and the ability to grasp a brief with both hands. You will need to develop distinctive ideas and executions (without looking for continuous direction / organization from senior team members), and a significant amount of experience in presenting ideas and concepts.
