Graphic Designer required for a leading retail business based in South Birmingham.

Your role will be varied and would be split across both print and digital design. One day you might be assisting with packaging concepts and the next you could be creating an online flash campaign for the website. Reporting to the Senior Designer, you will be tasked with a number of exciting design projects including packaging, marketing collateral, magazines, exhibitions, branding, microsites, social media, direct marketing and flash campaigns.

The suitable candidate will have at least two to three years graphic and digital design experience and preferably be from a retail background. You must have experience in both print and digital (banners & buttons) design and have an understanding of the B2C sector. You will ideally have knowledge of fashion and home trends and have the ability to translate these trends to brand and packaging. You should be able to work on projects from concept to delivery, understanding project lifecycles and implementation costs and will be comfortable working as part of a team, having strong communication skills, but also be able to work individually when required. High attention to detail and a strong work ethic are also required for this role and essential design skills include experience in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, InDesign, HTML, Flash and JavaScript.

 

Based in South Birmingham, my client is a national retailer, readily available in a number of outlets and there is UK and Overseas travel involved in this role. They are looking to grow their successful design team and maintain their brand image.
