Creative Artworker

Sort are looking to add a skilled Creative Artworker to our team, to primarily work on packaging and print art working but also with an opportunity to work across other disciplines within the studio.

To be successful you’ll need to be self-motivated, organised and have the ability to manage your own workload and work effectively with the rest of the team. You’ll be an expert with Adobe Creative Suite including Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop and you’ll have a keen eye for detail when it comes to type-setting, layout and high quality re-touching, ensuring accuracy and quality from the creative output of the studio.

The ideal candidate will have experience and knowledge of the following:

  • Fully competent in Adobe Creative Suite, including Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and Acrobat
  • Knowledge of packaging design, with experience of food packaging design preferable
  • Passionate about detail with a keen eye for spelling and grammar
  • Proven experience in a similar role
  • Ability to multi-task and consistently hit deadlines
  • Excellent visual and verbal communication skills
  • Organised and capable of handling administration and paperwork associated with the job
