As a Designer for a well-known fashion brand on the high street, you’ll need to be a quick creative thinker, with a keen eye for detail.

This is what you’ll do… • Creative research and concept design work for seasonal campaigns, to include homepages, email, social and ad creative, instore POS for eCommerce and internal documents. • Taking briefs from the Head of eCommerce and Digital Marketing Manager, presenting work at regular intervals for feedback. • Efficient and experienced designer with the ability to take projects from initial concept through to final web optimised files. • Be able to present and discuss your ideas in design critiques and stakeholder meetings.

Skills you’ll need… • A degree in Graphic Design or similar. • At least 1-2 years experience working within a design focused environment, ideally focused on marketing/fashion/retail. • An understanding of retail marketing is desirable. • Expertise in the Adobe Suite, and hopefully some cool new product we don’t know about. • Versatile designer and diligent art worker. • Collaborative skills to work closely with other designers. • Able to combine creative flair with innovative ideas. • An understanding of branding and corporate identity. • An ability to work on multiple projects concurrently and prioritise workload under pressure. • An ability to assist with photography retouching is desirable, or alternatively be willing to learn the skills required. • Sound knowledge of all office applications. • You have an understanding of common UI patterns and design methodologies. • Know enough HTML/CSS to be dangerous – or at least a desire to learn. • You have good taste, are detail-oriented, and know what pixel-fitting is.
