Clients working language is ENGLISH
As a member of the Creative Marketing team, the Junior Studio Designer is responsible for maintaining and adapting the seasonal look through all assigned projects, contributing to a cohesive visual message across all communications and always executing to our brand standards.
Based on concepts or visual direction, you’ll be supporting the leading creative team to develop, execute and deliver online content, print and design work.
You understand how technology works, and even better how it should look. With an articulate understanding of fundamentals like typography, interactive design and usability, you can improve work on both an aesthetic and functional level.
You’ll be reviewing your work with the creative team independently and deliver work on time. Versatility and flexibility along with good personal organization skills will be essential for you to manage work through the approval process.
Quality is key. You’re responsible for checking the accuracy of your work, and partnering with external agencies and production companies to make sure all assets and deliverables meet technical specifications and requirements. You’ll also be fundamental in contributing to the development of ‘best practice’ processes for our Agency team.
Fitting within a wider, integrated creative team, the role relies on a confident, energetic and motivated Junior Studio Designer, with the capability to collaborate with and inspire others.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
In a word, creativity. In a few more: enthusiasm, commitment and talent.
You have an innate feel for youth culture and trends, and actively pursue a further understanding of design culture in order to gain insights that can help drive the business forward.
You’re a responsible team player.
You have a detailed eye with good typography skills and creative flair to proactively offer innovative (but workable) design solutions. You’ll combine your creativity with technical competency, accuracy and a faultless attention to detail.
You are not afraid to make your voice heard, take ownership of your own projects and keep us growing. You have a passion for design and branding and be able to work closely with the rest of the team to create and develop ideas in a collaborative way. You are pro-active with the ability to work unguided and guided in an independent but inclusive manner.
But every bit as important will be the personal qualities you bring to the role: confidence, motivation, credibility, tenacity, communication, forward thinking and a willingness to bring the very best to the team.
Tons of energy and a great team spirit are a must!
