Accent Group

Graphic Designers – The Agency VIC

company: Accent Group
job title: Graphic Designers – The Agency VIC
location: Cremorne
work type: Full-time
level: Mid-level

Role Description

‘The Agency’ is our internal creative team. These 2 x Graphic Designer roles will be joining our team of designers, photographers, videographers and print experts here in Melbourne, and we also have a growing team up in Sydney.

Sade, our Graphic Design Manager, will be your team lead – say hi when you apply with your resume and portfolio!

Key Responsibilities

A lot can happen in a week here – to give you a taste of what we do, last month we:

  • Brainstormed brand names for upcoming products
  • Crafted beautiful EDMs for new Timberland arrivals
  • Whipped up a vinyl tram wrap with Vans global campaign artwork
  • Built out style guides for Alpha, an emerging internal brand
  • Animated some motion graphics to overlay on a top-performing TikTok video for Platypus
  • Created a new sale concept for Hype DC and delivered the artwork everywhere: from retail windows to performance marketing suites
  • Laid out a product catalogue with a super clear text hierarchy for 4Workers
  • Put together 10 logo options for another upcoming product
  • Rolled out global campaign artwork to all 100 Skechers stores
  • Made campaign graphics for The Trybe’s holiday campaign
  • Pulled together freshly edited selects from a recent Exie campaign shoot into a full-suite of digital artwork (we love an arch here)

 

ABOUT YOU

You’ll need to be able to…

  • Interpret briefs and take creative from words to ideas to finished art
  • Work fast and focused to balance deadlines, priorities, and jobs across all Accent brands
  • Feel confident in a workflow platform with 100s of live jobs (we’re on ClickUp at the moment, it’s just like Trello)
  • Use InDesign like a wizard (we use it more than anything else! Illustrator & Photoshop are also up there)
  • Prepare and present your ideas in concept boards and sometimes in person to our brand teams
  • ‘Make It Pop’ when someone asks you to (oh they will!)
  • Use a keen eye for detail when applying brand styleguides to artwork
  • Willing to explore new directions for our owned brands
  • Communicate with our brand teams clearly and friendly-ly
  • Collaborate well with other designers, photographers and videographers – there’s heaps of independent work but love coming together to explore ideas

Here are some other things we’d love but we understand that everyone brings their own areas of expertise!

  • Understand print pre-press across banners, packaging dielines and spot printing
  • Using After Effects to make graphics wiggle, fly and pop
  • Illustrative type, characters, icons, or storyboards
  • Interest in emerging design technology from Blender 3D to Webflow and Figma
  • A Bachelors qualification in Graphic/Communication Design
  • 3+ years experience in a studio or retail environment
