Full-time designdough in Cardiff

We’re on the hunt for a talented and passionate junior print designer to blow our socks off with their creativity and can-do attitude!

You must also be able to demonstrate that you are extremely eager to learn, are able to bring fresh, creative ideas to the table and possess the ability to articulate your creative thinking in both a proud yet humble way (or ‘prumble’ as we like to call it).

Although we’d love our ideal candidate to have some design industry experience, if you’re a third-year Graphic Design student who can show us you have the know-how and the passion to become a top-class graphic designer, we’re more than happy to receive your application.

The type of projects you can expect to be working on include brochures, zines, leaflets, print and digital marketing campaigns and annual reports – a real mixed bag for a group of diverse and exciting clients. and a lot of interesting things in between for a wide range of clients. You need to be able to make the best out of any project you’re given, and unafraid to try new things in order to get the job done, always striving to go the extra mile for our clients.

We are expanding and seriously ambitious, in both design and business terms, so we’re constantly looking to push the boundaries with every brief that comes our way and ensure that our clients are more than satisfied. Our creative process is both exciting and unique and has been carefully crafted by the team to ensure we’re all invested in every project so that the more that we put in, the more we get out.

The way you communicate says a lot about the kind of designer you are, so we’ll be taking a lot from the way you present your application (Especially your layout skills). We see brand as personality, and vice versa, so show off your brand to the best of your ability, with both message and visual. It’s simple really, all you’ve got to do is:

  • Ensure you have a fully up-to-date and beautifully laid out CV (Word documents will be tutted at and put in the trash)
  • Rustle up a beautifully crafted cover letter explaining why you’re the perfect person both in terms of print design and personality (We gauge both attributes equally).
  • Send us some examples of your best work…You don’t need to show us everything you’ve ever done, just show us the ones that’ll blow our socks clean off.
  • If you send a PDF attachment, make sure it doesn’t exceed 100mb. Ideally, keep it below 20mb so we can open it in an email.
  • Finally, don’t be shy, if you don’t apply you’ll never get it!

The deadline for applications is Friday 26th October so make sure you show us the best you can be!
