Senior Graphic Designer - Digital & Print, Cambridge -
One of Cambridge's leading media companies is seeking a Senior Graphic Designer in a newly-created specific role to will enable them to push forward their current design strategy to the next level.
As Senior Graphic Designer you will take control of the digital offerings of the business notably email, banners, newsletters and front end graphics, but at the same time support the print function as you will be involved in design of magazines as well. Whilst all candidates must have both on and offline experience, but the digital is the real key aspect as they're looking for somebody to bring new skills into the business. As such you must have significant demonstrable experience in digital, but not on a development level as most of the digital is done via platforms.
You will be expected to oversee a large amount of email marketing, newsletters, banner and web graphic design and production, but it should be noted that this is not a heavily creative role. There will be a large amount of page setting both on and offline, as well as some creative work. Candidates looking for a heavily illustrative/creative role should not apply, as this is never going to be a heavy part of the role.
As such the role is ideally suited to a competent designer who takes pride in the art-working, visual arrangement side of the role as much as the creative. And from a personality point of view, is a self-starter, who both works autonomously and can take instruction well. you will be working in a small design and production team, so candidates that need to be carried and not quick workers may not fair well.
Whilst you will be required to use a variety of different software applications, it's essential as a minimum you are highly proficient in Adobe Creative Suite, as Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign are key. Any experience in email marketing platforms and CMS systems will be an advantage but is not essential.
This is a fantastic role with many benefits, such as a relaxed and friendly working environment, and a very generous holiday allowance. This really is a role for an experienced design professional looking to take a position at a successful and market leading organisation. Due to their location this position is commutable from Ely, Peterborough, Cambridge, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Norwich, Royston, Bedford, St Ives, Huntingdon , Hitchin, Stevenage and St Neots.
