ABOUT THE ROLE

We’re looking for next-level creative talent with grit and determination to join us on our journey to becoming the No.1 graphic design subscription service in Europe.

As a Design Cloud designer, you will be responsible for delivering high-quality graphic design work across a diverse set of daily requests from our varied client base.

In a typical day, you could be working on everything from graphics for online and offline advertising campaigns, website and app prototypes, designing presentations for sales pitches, social media content, photo editing, amending or creating brochures, designing merchandise and even just updating text in an existing document.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING DAY TO DAY

  • Communicating directly with our customers through our platform and Slack messenger.
  • Executing daily graphic design requests from client briefs.
  • Ensure requests are being delivered to an exceptional standard and on time.
  • Reviewing and proofreading your own work for accuracy and quality control.
  • Pitching in with design ideas for Design Cloud advertising and marketing campaigns.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS

  • Friendly, positive attitude with a can-do mentality and hunger to develop new skills in graphic design.
  • Highly organised with an exceptional eye for detail and passion for current and future design trends.
  • Minimum of 3yrs commercial experience working full time in the creative industry. Agency experience is preferred or working as a busy in-house graphic designer.
  • Razor-sharp, diverse portfolio of varied graphic design work. We're looking for neat and tidy layout work above all. Please don't just send a portfolio of logos.
  • Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite products, specifically, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. (You will be asked to demonstrate your design skills as part of the interview process)
  • Ability to quickly and accurately respond to briefs. The majority of our client design requests require a rapid turnaround and all requests must be delivered to a high standard. (You will be asked to demonstrate your ability to read a brief and tested on how quickly you can produce a draft as part of the interview process)
  • Thrive on working in a fast-paced environment
  • Excellent written and communication skills with the ability to proof-read your own work before sending it back to clients is crucial.
  • Experience in communicating directly with clients is desired but not essential.
  • Possess the ability to look up and learn how to do new things if you’re unsure or have questions.

HOW DESIGN CLOUD WILL HELP YOUR CAREER

Due to the diversity of the design requests you’ll be working through on a daily basis, you will develop an invaluable set of skills that will level-up your design career in many ways:

  • You’ll supercharge your skills further and learn about styling, typography and layouts for designs across multiple commercial markets in a short space of time.
  • You’ll enhance your skills in time and project management as you will be required to work with multiple clients simultaneously and to tight deadlines.
  • You'll have regular team collaboration meetings to discuss design ideas and trends, review work amongst each other and give constructive feedback to help each other develop further.

IT'S OUR PEOPLE WHO REALLY MAKE IT A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Discussing ‘culture’ in the workplace can often come across as clichéd and insincere, and it might even seem like a marketing ploy. At Design Cloud, we don’t rely on superficial perks that ultimately mean little.

It’s our team, rather than trendy office spaces or weekend adventures, that truly makes Design Cloud an exceptional place to work. From Connor, our very first employee, to Martin, who keeps everything running smoothly, and Jack, our Design Operations Manager, these individuals bring talent, dedication, and a great sense of humor, creating a unique and inclusive work environment.

A typical day at Embryo starts casually, often with a friendly greeting from some of the nicest colleagues you could imagine, setting a welcoming and relaxed tone for the day ahead.
