About the role
We are looking for a mid level designer to join our Cascade marketing team. Someone that loves the little details, the big picture, and gets a kick out of clearly communicating concepts through visual communication. We are after an individual who has solid design skills and understands how to take a brief, some content, or ideas and turn them into clean, clear, engaging designs for our presentations, reports and articles, ads across social media, events, and other collateral to support our customer success teams. It’s an exceptional opportunity to be a part of a large team and growing company. Cascade is a great place to flex and grow your design skills. You will be creating work that will have a big impact for your lovely team members, and positively influence the brand of our growing organisation.
We’re looking for someone who can
Create well designed, engaging and consistent presentations within Canva and Google Slides
Design creative, on brand ads across social media, predominantly linked in and facebook
Create clear creative that in some cases is conveying complicated ideas.
Carry a project from concept through to completion
Work collaboratively across the team but can also tackle projects independently.
The ideal candidate should have the following
Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite with a strong emphasis on InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
Must understand correct use of paragraph styles, character styles, and good design habits in indesign. We create many studies and reports that have lots of graphs, charts, imagery, icons and copy that need to look sharp, engaging and consistent across potentially 100's of pages, so a strong understanding of large document design within InDesign is important.
Photoshop skills do not need to be expert, but you should know your way around
Proficiency in Figma (nothing too fancy but you will need to know your way around)
A good portfolio, does not need to be huge, we just need to see those skills.
Have strong understanding of typography, colour and design layout
Can follow guidelines, but still maintain imagination and creativity while being sympathetic to the brand.
Passionate about design and a strong eye for detail, consistency and accuracy.
Strong communication skills, both written and verbal.
Work efficiently, proactively getting briefs and feedback to be clear on the direction and minimise rounds
Enjoy working and collaborating with a good team.
Not required but nice to have would be someone who can illustrate, nothing overly complex, ideally a line art style.
