Digital Designer: Financial Services – Stellenbosch
The internal design studio of a leading corporate financial institution is passionate about design and is looking for an extremely talented, junior Digital Designer (and design thinker) to join their team and help shape their much-loved brand. If thinking visually comes naturally to you and you love to take the abstract and make it visual, this is for you. We’re looking for someone with oodles of talent at your disposal: mad Photoshop skills, icon development, and of course pixel-perfect designs. You think about the big picture, the brand, and most importantly, the client takeout from concept to execution. You love working with a team on a mission and are adept at collaborating with brand, user experience and audio-visual folk to find elegant but practical solutions to design challenges. You love creating design experiences and have meticulous attention to detail. The ideal candidate is a clear and articulate communicator; someone deliberate about their design approach, who relies on feedback from the team and internal clients to take their designs further. The company offers super corporate benefits and lots of room to grow. If you thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment we want to hear from you!
Your key goal would be to support the digital team in producing world-class work for the company’s social media platforms and creatively contribute to the designs of new and existing digital advertising campaigns. This will include developing the initial concept, rolling it out across the brand’s various digital touchpoints and the sourcing/designing of design assets like stock photography, infographics, iconography, etc.
The successful candidate must have/be:
- 3-year Degree in Visual Communications from a recognised tertiary institution
- 1-3 years’ experience as a Digital Designer
- A current online portfolio
- Wireframing skills – a plus
- A talent for motion graphics and HTML 5 (that would give you rock star status although you are not required to code)
- A curious mind
- A good agency cultural match
- A clear and articulate communicator
- Able to thrive in a fast-paced environment
- A good collaborator
- Meticulous design approach.
