Wanna Job Senior Designer

Senior Designer

About us

We are looking for a senior designer to join our small(ish) but mighty team. We are a creative agency
that (unsurprisingly) designs, builds and writes digital stuff, brand stuff, campaign stuff, animation
stuff, print stuff and all manner of other stuff. We work in pretty much any sector you can name,
from education to justice, from DJ equipment to piracy (the sea-faring variety). We work with some
companies that you’ll have heard of, and a whole bunch that you won’t have – but all of it combines
to make a vibrant, interesting and stimulating workplace. Our senior designer is a key role in the
company. Shocker, eh. You’ll conspire with designers, developers, wordy folks and project managers
to produce award-winning work.

What you’ll do

  • You will work with an Account Manager and other team members to collect a complete briefing
    for the project that you are undertaking. You will understand the expectations, the project’s
    objectives, the scope, and the deadline to ensure the on-time delivery of the project.
  • From the brief, you will create beautiful, appropriate, polished, crafted visuals that fulfil the
    communications purpose of the job.
  • Design work is generally completed using the most appropriate tool for the job. This often
    includes, but is not limited to; Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, Invision and the occasional forway
    into PowerPoint and Word (spits).
  • You should always be conscious of ways to create a more efficient process in order to spend more
    time adding value to the project wherever possible.
  • In order to push our design skills forward you will be eager to keep up-to-date with the latest
    trends and technologies within the industry. You will likely do this by reading magazines, blogs
    and by attending conferences and courses.

What you’ll be like

A highly motivated, creative and passionate person that is up for tackling demanding tasks and
taking responsibility for your work, who is excited to learn new things and experiment with things
you’ve never done before. You will be an excellent communicator who can explain to regular
humans the ramifications and awesomenesses of the design choices you make, and also to have
(and describe) great ideas about how to take concepts to the next level. You will use your problem
solving skills and big picture thinking to create solutions and take problems away. Most importantly
you will be a pretty decent human being who treats everyone with respect and dignity.

What you’ll probably have

  • Agency experience (but happy to consider in-house too)
  • A creative, interesting and thoughtful portfolio showing off your great typography, illustration
    skills and digital work.
  • Software skills (Creative Suite, Sketch, InVision, all the good stuff)
  • Ability/willingness/keen to shape our design landscape

What you’ll get

  • 22 days holiday plus all bank holidays
  • 3 duvet days a year
  • Flexible working hours
  • All the air, cake, BBQs and biscuits you can consume
