About the role

As we grow we look for ways to evolve and we want to shape our roles around people. So at the moment, this role is focused on the following, and we’re open to how you think we could evolve it 🙂

As a Designer, you’ll be creating and evolving brand design systems, designing websites and creating content for digital channels. You’ll consider the brand, their goals and audiences to create distinct designs that work across different formats; emails, blogs, social media, videos, scripts, brand documents, website, case studies. You’ll be participating in workshops with clients to understand their ideas and needs, as well as presenting back your concepts and designs.

While you focus on Design, you’ll collaborate with our core team who’ll help manage the client, create engaging copy, identify technical requirements, build and integrate (for websites). If you’d like to lean into any of those areas we’d be more than happy to make that work for you.

For this role we’re seeking a Designer with 3 or more years experience developing brands, websites and brand assets.

If you were here last month you could've been involved in.

  • Participated in a client workshop to gather ideas and design inspiration for the upcoming website we’re designing for a client in the sustainable architecture & building industry. 
  • Creating templates, visuals and animations with our content team to create an engaging email and social content calendar for a client who advocates for the climate technology industry
  • On Tuesdays you co-worked with the team at the Hub Southern Cross. You joined a couple of the team to head to lunch at the local Japanese restaurant to discuss the Ted Lasso S3 finale and which one of the team busked on Bourke Street over the weekend.
  • You joined our Monthly Impact Update where you heard about the month that was. The team celebrated each team member’s “greatest hits”, wins, learnings, and you heard a transparent overview of how we’re tracking financially. We reviewed our strategic goals, projects & reflected on what we should start, stop and continue doing. You heard about details on two pieces of client work the team were particularly proud of.
  • You collaborated with Simon creating an investor pitch deck and capital raise document for a client who’s raising $2M to unlock the next phase of their innovation waste-to-energy technology
  • Sarah and you worked together on the layout for a wireframe for a tourism destination in regional Victoria who are elevating indigenous and female stories from our history
  • You designed a new eCom platform we’re building on Shopify for one of Australia’s most successful locally designed footwear brands
  • You helped the team create a suite of Canva templates to help the content team create engaging social posts
  • You attended your fortnightly self-development and coaching session with your manager and walked away with clear feedback on areas you’re thriving in, areas for improvement and goals to work on
  • You worked with Becky bringing to life the visual ID for not-for-profit WIRE, progressing their logo, colours, typography, photography treatments, brand devices. You applied these into example collateral mockups to bring it to life for the client meeting.

Be curious and creative

You’re a proactive self-learner with an understanding of how good design can bring out the best in a brand. You have a hunger for staying across the latest brand, design and content trends, and can translate your findings into your creative work to deliver on brand goals.

You know how to ask client’s the right questions to tell a story and create engaging brand experiences.

Be strategic and act

You love memorable brands that gives strong looks and big feels. We know how to meld industry best practice with the magic of our client’s brand to create and implement a kick-butt brand experience.

You’re passionate about empowering clients with user-friendly visual ID’s, templates, decks and digital assets they can sink their teeth into.
