Intermediate Designer | Auckland-NZ
|Position Type:||Full Time|
|Attachments:||No File Attached|
Colenso, who are one of the best creative agencies in the world, are looking for a talented designer to help bring amazing ideas to life through great design execution.
You'll be a radiator (not a drainer), be a team player, have strong communication skills, be responsive and open minded to feedback, and have a hunger to keep learning.
Your focus will be to work in support of the Creative Teams, bringing their ideas and scamps to life and offering useful suggestions on design direction.
Just like everyone at Colenso, you will be required to do a combination of some heavy lifting as well as stand-out creative work. This can include but is not limited to; presentation documents on short deadlines, the visualisation of creative ideas, basic graphic design and type treatments, logos and identity design. While you are required to attend to the ‘meat and potatoes' of the agency, you should also aim to produce 2-3 strong portfolio pieces.
You will be a member of the design department and your focus should lie with execution, but there is no restriction on presenting creative concepts at the monthly Bacon Factory sessions or getting involved with bringing to life some of the proactive ideas knocking around – in fact we encourage that greatly!
What makes this role unique?
We're a welcoming and very supportive team working in one of the most creative and innovative agencies in the world, that just happens to be based in New Zealand.
We're currently looking for someone who thrives on out of the box thinking, has a ‘can do' attitude, and is eager to help us with our growing workload to deliver high-quality digital solutions.
Skills and Responsibilities:
- Minimum 3 years commercial work experience
- Visualisation of concepts/designs
- Enhancement of rough layouts / scamps
- Preparation of finished materials in formats as required
- Briefing of studio / external resources as required
- Strong design portfolio
- Time Management and can prioritize tasks accordingly and efficiently
- Understand the importance of the work, the work, the work
