Description

Wunderman Thompson is searching for a talented and dynamic Studio person to take on a permanent position beginning in July 2019.

Yup, we actually have an opening here. I know, right. Never happens.

Anyway, the person we’re looking for will be able to work with tight brand guidelines, tight deadlines, and an even tighter-knit team of great people. You’ll also be given plenty of opportunity to spread your wings and hog the spotlight by creating exciting and original design when required. It goes without saying that an awareness and appreciation of good design and typography is essential.

A real all-rounder, you’ll possess energy, drive, personality and the ability to work above a bar without visiting said bar before midday. We want you to jump in with both feet and bring some life and vibrancy into the look of all our work across some of Perth’s largest and most respected clients, including RAC, Western Power, DFES (Department of Fire & Emergency Services), Homebuyers Centre and more.

This role would perfectly suit someone willing to high-five more responsibility. Probably someone keen to put their mark on an agency and prove to their old boss just what they can do!

Because ultimately the plan is to build and grow your own department. And to do so, you will be working directly with our Creative Director to build a real tonal look and feel for the agency and our clients.

But enough about you. Let’s talk about us. WundermanThompson is a busy, vibrant and integrated advertising agency based in the exciting area of Wolf Lane, Perth CBD. Above a bar.

We also work closely with our national offices in Sydney and Melbourne – sharing resources and briefs on a regular basis. It’s an exciting place to be, and is the only agency in Perth that actively operates and utilises its national and international network connections. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t have a video conference with some smart planners or creatives from over there.

So, if you’re ready to get stuck in and take things up a notch, here are the finer details;

Key tasks/responsibilities

  • To create layouts and design concepts as well as set up print ready artwork.
  • To work as design lead on new campaigns and with/for the Creative Dept, taking concepts through to finished art.
  • To provide basic/mid-level retouching skills.
  • To fully understand, uphold and implement our clients brand guidelines to ensure consistent and efficient artwork set up.
  • Ability to prioritise work, whilst under time constraints/pressure but ensuring accuracy and applying attention to detail.
  • Ability to clearly and accurately brief freelance resources on set tasks.
  • Proofing amends.
  • To produce and help with the production of presentations, visuals and mock-ups for presentations.
  • To add value wherever possible and go that extra mile to get the job done.
  • Technical and graphic design skills in artwork assembly with a strong eye for detail.
  • Mac proficient in Adobe Creative Suite 2019 and QuickPrint.
  • Ability to efficiently manage your own time.
  • Ability to communicate clearly and concisely, project your own point of view.
  • Have a thorough working knowledge and compliance of studio procedures and guidelines.
  • Exhibit a high level of integrity and honesty in your dealings with colleagues, suppliers and clients.
  • An ability to expect the unexpected, roll with the punches and stay in control whilst remaining part of a team (ie Minimal freaks-outs and no going AWOL).
  • The level of work can vary between churn and burn mac amends to detailed graphic design development, rebranding, logo work and illustration. Be prepared.
  • Ability to present your own concepts with confidence.
  • Oh, about illustration. This isn’t a mandatory, but some skills in that department would be a very, very nice to have, as would digital design experience.
  • More and more clients are asking for presentations and templates in Keynote, Word and Powerpoint. Knowing your way around these would be a plus.
  • Did we mention attention to detail?
