Salary: GBP40,000 to GBP45,000 base

The first thing to highlight here is this role isn't just restricted to digital design. It's also going to include some offline elements like POS, packaging design and the likes. But more on this later.
If you like to be busy and enjoy design environments where the work is fast paced with quick turnarounds but remains really high quality, you're in the right place. As this beauty brand is just that, with projects with turnaround times varying between 2 weeks down to just 2 days. In fact, they operate and feel much like a design agency, despite being in-house.
As much as you read that and wonder if it was chaotic, well, it's not.
ABOUT THE ROLE
There's a clear project management workflow and they've just got things down to a fine art. Once you know the brand this is for you will probably also recognise their work for being creative and high quality too, despite the pace the design team operates at.
You'll be working for a luxury British beauty brand. One which is well represented within most of the World's biggest luxury spa chains, as well as through retail and direct to consumer channels ecommerce too.
Their branding is elegant, simple and classy. Their creative approach echoes and amplifies this too.
It's a relatively small team of 4 and being the senior designer, you will have project support supplied by a shared resource junior designer.
As the Senior, you will be expected to self-manage your tasks, creating digital assets for both the Global and UK market teams. The briefs will be varied including things for web banners, digital newsletters, social media (including motion video and Gifs) as well as PDP's.
On top of this will be the occasional need to provide support for offline design projects. These arise as the team works highly collaboratively, and each are able to bridge and provide project support when needed. So if a colleague is on holiday, and something needs fixing for packaging design or a new POS, you've got to be the kind of person who doesn't mind mucking in to get it done.
They've also built up a wide array of beautiful designs and templates to help speed up some of the work. Making your life much easier.
This said, there will be some opportunity to have creative input too.
So if you love this kind of thing and are confident you've got the right stuff to succeed, apply now - and please don't forget to include a copy of your portfolio of work. We're looking for a good array of different digital mediums, both graphic and motion based (animations/gifs, etc.).
- Evidenced experience of doing similar to the above on behalf of a fast-paced retail, luxury brand, beauty, cosmetic or skincare brand
- Experience leading and managing digital creative output, creating assets
- Some experience with offline projects like POS, package design, etc. would be useful - certainly you understand how to get something designed and set up ready for print production
- Completely fluent with the Adobe Creative Suite - Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Flash, Illustrator
- Also knowledgeable on After Effects and Premier Pro
- Collaborative working style, inclusive and very comfortable working in a small, close knit team
- Can demonstrate the ability to deliver high quality outputs to tight deadlines and fast turnarounds.
If you think you've got what it takes, you can share your Linkedin profile or email me a CV - it doesn't have to be up to date, we can work on that once you decide you want to take this forward. Please also include a copy of your portfolio
