July

Soft Goods and Accessories Designer (Travel Lifestyle)

company: July
job title: Soft Goods and Accessories Designer (Travel Lifestyle)
location: Collingwood
work type: Full-time
level: Mid-level

Role Description

We design beautiful products that our customers love. Founded in 2018, July exists to bring better-designed products to how we travel.

Creating durable high spec luggage at a fraction of the traditional price means we are giving all people the opportunity to own luggage that lasts a lifetime.

We’re direct-to-consumer and in love with our customers; we retail directly into Australia and the US market, with more coming.

We’re a young team looking to showcase our Australian offering globally and we’d love for you to join us. Check us out online or on socials.

As a Product Designer, you’ll be working within our Product Design and Development team. You will be reporting to our Head of Design & Innovation (Alan, who is a great source of inspiration), working closely with our Founders (Richard and Athan who are also great!) and collaborating with all other departments, like production, operations and marketing.

As July’s Product Designer, you’ll be at the forefront of a startup life, getting hands-on experience in building a global company from a very early stage. Your role will be at the forefront of the chain at July; designing the future scope of exciting products for Australia, the US and the rest of the world.

The Product Designer is responsible for creating new concepts, selecting colours, materials and finishes, refining them through mock ups and user testing, documenting designs through technical drawings and specifications to get samples made and produced.

The Product Designer will need to be proficient in Adobe CC, passionate about soft goods as much as hard goods, practical in mocking-up concepts and problem-solving. Excellent attention to detail, product finesse and an eye for trends.

The Design team ensures the July brand and products are delivered to the world at their highest level of quality and functionality.
