Brand & Packaging Designer / $85k - $95k


Are you a bit of a design perfectionist, someone who lives & breathes branding, & wants to work in a fun studio in a company whose products go global?


This employer is on the lookout for a hungry designer who’s put in the hard yards for 3 years and is ready to launch their career forward and learn from the best in the industry. This role sits in a growing, successful studio within an exciting global company (with heaps of recognisable brands).

The ideal candidate needs to have sound commercial experience within the FMCG sector and a solid understanding of ideating and developing creative concepts for new brands, brand extensions, and brand refreshes. This person should have a craft-focused design eye; able to take a brief from conception all the way to the finished mass production-ready status. Needless to say, you’ll be proficient in all things design; POS, brand, ideation, layout and last but not least, real-world FMCG packaging.

To be successful in this role you’ll be a blend of creative talent and hands-on execution. You’ll be a team player, self-motivated, and energised. The brand is fast paced, so you will need to be resilient, and able to work with a sense of urgency while paying careful attention to detail, all with a winning attitude.
