Job Description

This is an excellent opportunity to join a small & friendly In-house Design Team who are part of a well-established overseas company. The role is a full time position available at the European Head Office in Worcestershire. They are leading experts within the Kitchenware & Housewares industry, supplying to the majority of leading retailers and distributors in the UK.

Ideally they are looking for someone with at least 1 years' experience in a similar Junior role, but also would consider someone with up to 3 years' experience in a similar early Mid-level role. The successful candidate will be working under the guidance of 2 Senior Designers and alongside 1 other Product Designer.

You will need to love the detail and accuracy of Artworking as this would be your primary role in creating eye catching Designs & neat Layouts for Kitchenware Packaging Ranges. Although the role is predominately Packaging Artwork, there will be opportunities to show your creative flare with involvement in the Product Design. This would include tasks such a researching Trends in the market, working on Designs for new Product ranges and creating Presentations to show these ideas to Customers.

As well as having sound knowledge of Illustrator to enable you to complete Packaging Artwork, Photoshop is also essential for creating Packaging backgrounds and editing elements such as images/textures. Basic skills in InDesign would be needed for setting up Customer Presentations and Brochures. Photography skills would also be an advantage but not essential.

The Candidate must be efficient, organized and able to work accurately to tight deadlines at busy periods of the year; attention to detail is a must. You should be happy to work alongside other team members on large projects, but also confident to work alone when required.
