Salary
Competitive plus benefits, inc. 25 days holiday, private healthcare, life assurance

Calling all Marksmen and women (with a sweet tooth).

We’re looking for a talented designer to join our Birmingham studio. But what sort of designer and what exactly does talented mean? Hold your horses, I’m getting on to it! We want a designer with ideas. No clearer? Allow me to use an analogy, possibly a bad one (at the time of writing I haven’t decided): packaging design and layout are your bread and butter, but a little bit of unexpected magic is your jam. You must be able to take a brief from packaging through to a retail campaign. You’ll be vocal – heck, even opinionated (tell me if you don’t think the jam sandwich analogy is any good!).

We’re not too worried how long you’ve been in the game or what high school you went to – just show us some magic and a burning desire to succeed.


Key Functions & Skills

Interrogate: every brief so that you can create the most adventurous solution possible.
Create: a final suite of work that fits together seamlessly as a campaign and demonstrably ladders up to the overarching concept/ idea.
Present: Your work with the confidence that comes from knowing that you have done all that you can.
Detail: ensure all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed when executing a brand vision.
Demonstrate: proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite from design and layout to retouch, as well scamping skills.
Attitude: to push the boundaries of a creative and the brief in packaging and retail design – actively encouraging the same attitude across the studio.


Team Responsibilities
• Play an active role in supporting both your immediate colleagues and those across the agency
• Challenge, colleagues and clients to push the boundaries of the brief
• Be an active participant in agency life and get involved with internal initiatives

KPI’s
• Creative work delivered on time and on brief – consistent, accurate and efficient interpretation and roll out of creative concepts across all channels/ sku’s/ media

Are you an Artworker who want to work on some of the most well-loved and established brands in today’s global marketplace?

As an Artworker at SGSCO you’ll accurately create artwork (sometimes multilingual) for your client (following their brand guidelines or design requirements), whilst maintaining consistency across the complete range and ensuring that all images and files are complete and ready for printing according to the printers’ specifications.

You’ll spend your time preparing accurate artworks from approved design and brief ensuring artwork interpretation is achievable within print production constraints (maximum colours, minimum font size and line thickness, print margins etc.) Rolling out artwork across complicated multilingual packs from translation documents. You’ll be responsible for ensuring line and traffic managers are kept informed of the progress of jobs, and of any impact to the production plan or deadlines.

We’d expect you to have relevant experience of artwork creation and manipulation to a high standard with the ability to understand and execute creative direction and instructions. It would be great if you had experience of the packaging print industry or working within a prepress environment because that would give you experience of building artwork files for multiple print processes (Litho, Flexo, Gravure, Dry Offset etc.) – however this isn’t essential, what is essential is that you’re proficient in Adobe Illustrator. The ability to multi-task and work in a fast-paced studio setting will help you to plan production to meet timelines. You’re not just working on art the whole time, so it’s key you have excellent interpersonal skills (both verbal and written)
