Job Description

We are looking for a Midweight 2D Designer for a live event and digital experience agency. They create unique and iconic experiences for some of the biggest global brands.

This is exciting Opportunity for a 2D Designer who is super ambitious to both work with and be the best. You will either be a midweight already looking to move to an exciting agency, or a strong junior who is looking for that next step up.

You will have 3+ yrs experience in experiential or integrated agencies and be conversant with through-the-line design campaigns.

It is important that you have exposure working across multiple channels, from event design through to branding, and everything in between. Alongside this, due to the industry turning and focusing highly on a digital offering, we require someone who possesses a good grasp and understanding of the digital space. We aren't looking for an out and out digital native, but someone who has a good amount of exposure to this channel.

Ultimately design is your craft, it's what gets you out of bed in the morning. We want someone with exceptional flair and an eye for detail; but equally important, we want someone with ideas who can take the initiative and run with a project, without needing their hand held.

You'll be an expert in Adobe CC. What's more, you will have the confidence to talk about your work to internal teams, as well as clients. You'll be working alongside, and in close collaboration with, other 2D and 3D Designers, so the ability to work as a team player is essential.
