Graphic Designer

Location: London's Tech City
Posted: 10.04.19

Overview

Profusion is a pioneering, fast-growing company situated at the heart of London’s Tech City and is at the forefront of data-influenced marketing. We work with global companies from our London, Dubai and India offices and we are playing a key role in data and digital transformation for our clients across multiple industries – radically changing how they do business and improve the customer experience.

Essentially, you’ll be a design all-rounder ready to develop your existing skills by working on ambitious internal/external digital and print projects. You’ll be supporting the creative direction of internal branding and external campaigns under the guidance of our head of design. You’ll be working on anything and everything from email design, pitches, proposals and deck presentations to editorial newsletters, landing page campaigns, and sales & marketing collateral.

So, if you want to flourish in an environment where you’ll spin a multitude of plates in a continually changing workflow, we’d love to hear from you.

If you prefer to work within the safe confines of a set in stone, structured and predictable day/week/month/year – this isn’t the right environment for you.

You’ll be a calm, open and adaptable type who can jump in and unleash your artistic flair. You’ll be hungry yet humble, and happy ‘just’ to make glorious sales presentation slides for a while … knowing that … like everything else … this could change at any time.
