We are on the hunt for a passionate graphic designer, fresh out of university (or with up to 2 years’ industry experience), to join our growing national Creative Design team. We’re looking for someone with strong creative vision and enthusiasm, looking to build upon their existing skills and learn from other creative disciplines in a fast-paced, progressive environment. You will support the Design Lead in driving quality and creativity throughout the team, while contributing to a positive working culture.

Whether you’re designing for print, events, web, virtual reality or motion, the role offers great scope for creativity to bring greater value to our variety of engineering, infrastructure and architectural design projects. You will bring your ideas, passion and problem-solving approaches to help us deliver fresh, creative solutions. You’ll be a team player, ensuring that delivery is of the highest standard, both creatively and technically. You will embrace the variety of work, enjoy the buzz of a dynamic working environment and be brimming with creative ideas.

You will be

  • A creative thinker who is comfortable talking with clients and colleagues to understand their ideas and bring them to life
  • Familiar with the fundamentals of design such as layout, typography and composition, but always looking to learn and improve
  • Comfortable using Adobe Creative Suite, specifically InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop. Knowledge of Premiere and After Effects would be advantageous.
  • Prepared to push boundaries – happy with day-to-day tasks but always looking for ways to add value
  • Passionate, driven and wanting to invest in Creative Design’s vision and culture
  • Organised with excellent attention to detail
  • Interested in working with digital teams to deliver innovative multi-discipline solutions

Could that be you? We’re a diverse bunch and that means we’re always looking for people to enrich our studios with fresh points of view. It doesn’t really matter if you’re a quiet contemplator, an off-the-wall thinker or both of the above – as long you’re creative, ambitious and with an eagerness to learn and improve your skills then we want to hear from you.
