  • Understanding of the printing process and creating artwork for print is essential.
  • A good understanding of brand and corporate guidelines.
  • Great progress reporting skills at every stage of the design and artwork process.
  • Methodical approach to organising, archiving images and artwork.

  • Good knowledge of PowerPoint and Keynote would be beneficial.
  • Good knowledge of Google Web Designer is desirable.
  • Advanced retouching skills would be desirable.
  • Experience in creating digital artwork and assets would be an advantage.

There's lots of potential here for the right person, and we really do like to have fun while we work - it's a very happy, collaborative environment, so if you are a team player, with great artworking skills and a good sense of humour, then we'd love to see your CV!
