Creative Artworker – Ted Baker Beauty and Noughty Hair Care.
What’s the difference between a Creative Artworker and an Artworker? To us, it’s that crucial step as you move up the design ladder, having established your credentials as an artworker. You’re taking a client’s brief to the next level and being imaginative with the way in which you execute a brief, while staying true to the task you’ve been given. We need your creativity and flair to help bring visions alive.
We’re a brands business. We create and build brands that are beautiful and that work. You’ll take our already pretty fantastic designs, for both our clients’ and our own brands, and convert them into accurate, commercially viable formats across various mediums. A little bit of magic, a little bit of flair, a lot of attention to detail and always getting things done on time and on brief. You’ll be a vital component in our collective engine and will work particularly closely with our brand and marketing teams, all of whom are an enthusiastic and busy bunch.
What will you be doing?
This is a wide ranging role – you’ll be working on packaging and products, PR and marketing, all of our KMI Brands imagery including online and social image content, and much more. We’ll need your advice and support in choosing packaging materials, supporting photoshoots, even creating beautiful corporate bags.
Some of the technical things we need you to be strong in are: Adobe Creative Cloud including Illustrator CC, InDesign CC and Photoshop CC; colour print process including CMYK, spot colours, overprinting, bleed etc; typography and layout; proof reading; and you’ll be our in house go-to for MAC problems.
This is a fabulous role for someone who loves working with premium brands in a really fast moving business where what you do matters and you can see the results of your efforts quickly. You’ll need an eye for detail and the ability to muck in with anything you see that needs doing, and in return you’ll have a team who work just as hard to make your life easier. We’re in it together. There are less than 50 of us, which means that you will see the impact of what you do straight away, and everything you do will have a purpose. Your voice won’t get lost like it might in a major multi-national, but we do have some pretty big ambitions.
