Senior Graphic Designer

Full time

Are you an experienced graphic designer with a passion for crafting visual brand identities?
Do you have skills across all facets of digital and print design? Are you looking to be part of a team creating award winning work building legacy brands?

We’re currently looking for a talented senior graphic designer with agency experience to join our close-knit Fortitude Valley-based team.

The Opportunity

We’re a different kind of agency to most. Our model starts with in-depth research and strategy by our inhouse strategic marketing team — and then follows with design and implementation on a 12 month retainer. Our clients are innovators with businesses in growth, who want to transform their thriving business into a brand. You’ll be working across different clients and design styles, developing visual identities and brand collateral for a range of up-and-coming and leading brands — helping to position them for success.

Our strategy first approach means that you’ll have a data based brand strategy to design from and our long term rollout retainer model means you’ll get to work on design and rollout for the brands over the following 12 months.

High demand for this unique approach means we’re looking to replicate the current existing team into a second ‘pod’ — an excellent opportunity for a graphic designer who is looking to leave a legacy in their field. Ultimately complimenting our existing team, we want someone who is looking to be part of building something meaningful with us (and having some fun and winning some awards along the way).

The Role

In this role, you will be working on a variety of projects for a diverse client base. Work includes logo and brand design, packaging design, marketing collateral, and digital advertising campaigns – so a passion for all things design & brand is a must! We’re looking for someone with high attention to detail, who can self manage the workload and deal directly with our clients when required. This role would suit someone with a minimum of 6 years experience in agency or freelance settings, working across multiple projects, clients and industries.

We want an experienced graphic designer who can help build the brands of tomorrow with us. Culture is super important — so we are looking for a collaborative, highly creative team player that can help us visually transform businesses to brands — delivering award winning high-end results whilst having fun at the same time!

Perks
Our team genuinely invests in the brands we work with, and we’re all committed to delivering quality results. Pixel Palace is a conscious, people-first agency. We strive to be an agency of choice for both clients and talent, and we aim to deliver award-winning work that represents real value for our clients.

A close-knit team of experts to work alongside
Engaged and invested clients that value your work
Making a visual mark on this world
Flexible working conditions
Upskilling and learning opportunities
Award-winning level work
People-first, culture-focused vibe

Our boutique office space is located on Agnes St in Fortitude Valley .

Confident in building rapport with team members and other stakeholders.
Attention to detail and a focus for continual process improvement
The ability to meet tight deadlines and multi-task
The ability to supply print ready finished art
Unrestricted working rights in Australia

You’d be at a serious advantage if you have experience in…

Website design
