Junior Marketing Designer — careers with Astute Graphics

General Purpose

Astute Graphics is looking for a highly talented and engaging Junior Marketing Designer. The ideal candidate will have experience designing creative across a variety of channels including; social, email and web content. You will be skilled at taking an idea, editing stock art, delivering a creative execution, and interpreting the results.

Please note: this is a 50% design and 50% analytical role. Please only apply if you can use Illustrator to design, but are also interested in analysing which design has worked best and why.

Working with the Marketing Director and Senior Designer, you will look to find ways to push the brand to deliver the most creative output. You’ll spend your time split between producing digital creatives, mainly for social media, and being immersed in the analytics side really understanding what is working well and what is not.

We need a designer who can work to a brief but has the confidence to be proactive in producing engaging creative, when they see an opportunity. You will be adept at working with brand guidelines and have knowledge of best practices when it comes to social and creative content.

You will be accomplished in all the standard software packages that a creative needs to get the job done, and MUST be proficient in Adobe Illustrator. Not only will you be able to create artwork for our marketing channels, but you will take a real interest in data and analytics, with the ability to spot key insights in a dataset. Produce website analysis using a variety of analytics tools, including Google Analytics, MailChimp and internal reporting tools.
