My client is a successful retail company in the trade and consumer markets, based in central West Yorkshire. They are currently going through exciting times which has resulted in massive expansion.
This expansion has included the start of a new in-house design team last year and already they are looking to employ their 4th & 5th designers (more studio staff are to follow).
The core responsibilities of the role are to create workable designs (within brand), through to print ready artwork, on a multiple of marketing requirements. This will include anything from product catalogues, signage, web sites (no development skills req’d), marketing leaflets, lots of packaging, in-store window posters, hanging banners and product photography.
The ideal applicant for this role will have most likely worked ‘client side’ before. You must be able to bring a range of studio skills, from creative flair to production and also be aware of the web and how to create effective user experience from the visual aspect. You will have an understanding of the latest print processes and hopefully an interest in product photography. Overall, you will be a team player rather than somebody out for personal gain.
Additionally, you will also be fluent in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator with any further skills in 3D, animation and online development an advantage rather than a necessity.
This is a great chance to be part of a company with lots of ambition who reward their staff accordingly.
