Ragged Edge is looking for a full-time Creative Artworker to join the team in our Farringdon studio.
About the role
Our artworkers play an integral part in the design process by finessing every project and scrutinising every detail to ensure each job is perfect before it leaves the studio. This role is suited to someone with that ideal balance of right-brain/left-brain; equally creative and logical, artist and perfectionist. The role also involves providing production advice to the design team, so a good working knowledge of paper stocks and printing techniques is key.
Typical, day-to-day tasks will include fine-tuning brand guidelines, crafting logos, creating brand assets for print and screen, artworking packaging, liaising with printers and paper reps, and performing technical studio admin. We have a team of 8 designers, one head artworker/production manager and several freelancers.
As an artworker, your attention to detail and organisational skills should be awesome by default. With at least 2 years industry experience under your belt, you will be fluent in the CC suite and you should be comfortable producing flawless artwork for all kinds of print and digital applications. Working closely with the design team, you will be encouraged to use your production experience and creative eye to help provide solid solutions to our daily design challenges.
A good sense of humour is essential, as is the ability to keep a level head when those unexpected deadlines strike. You must obviously be mac savvy, and you should feel confident taking responsibility for archiving, backups and software installation.
Proof-reading qualifications are not absolutely necessary, but there is a large amount of typesetting involved in this role, so you must possess a solid grasp of spelling and English grammar.
