We are recruiting an experienced or Junior Designer for our client based in the Birmingham area.

Working in a small, professional team, you will design and develop graphics and packaging for a wide range of giftware products. There is also an opportunity for a Junior Product Designer within the business.

You must have previous design experience, and be extremely proficient in Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as the management of Excel spreadsheets.

You will ideally need to be experienced with generating cutters on Illustrator, creating full mock ups for customers, managing web based platforms with art houses, and organising the day to day critical path of packaging artwork from the art house to the factory.

You will also approve pre-pro samples for artwork, copy, technical and fit for purpose, create packing specs for factories and then approve packing photos from factories.

You will organise day to day artwork from major retailers and be able to lay artwork, liaising with the Far East on delivery schedules and wetproofing.

The hours of work are Monday to Thursday 8.30am-5.30pm, and Friday 8.30am-1.30pm
