Nose To Tail is a Melbourne based, full service creative agency. We offer branding, marketing strategy, campaign management, graphic design and social media management.
We are looking for a freelnce mid weight designer with 3-5 years industry experience to join our fast paced Melbourne studio.
You will need to be able to balance multiple projects at once, work well in a team environment, have a positive attitude and above all be passionate about your work.
If you have a strong knowledge of print and digital design, are proficient in Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop this could be the role for you.
Are you a visual storyteller who lives and breathes good design and wants to help us spread our brand look and feel across the world in the right way?
IN A NUTSHELL...
At Bellroy, we pour our heart, soul and many design hours into helping people move with simplicity and ease. As we continue to grow and spread our reach into further corners of the globe (both digitally and physically), we're looking for a mid-senior graphic designer to help define what that looks like - literally. You'll be valuable in making sure the Bellroy brand is shining brightly (and cohesively) across print and retail channels, as well as supporting our digital content creation. A bit like a chef. Fusing flavours but making sure the entire menu works as one. (Because no one goes to a Thai restaurant for spaghetti bolognese).
Working with our Creative Director, you'll art direct photo shoots, work with our product designers to help create compelling product packaging and be critical in maintaining Bellroy's visual standards in store. You'll work as part of a conceptual team to dream up new directions for our campaigns, then execute the creative to ensure it's in line with the creative strategy, with a touch of spontaneity when it feels right.
You'll learn from previous product releases and campaigns, working with the wider team to build your understanding of what works best, and why. You'll work with our digital marketing team to look at what sort of imagery triggers the most engagement or which ad concepts or newsletters perform the best. You'll work with our sales team to continue improving our instore experience - from the packaging you create to the point of sale that supports it.
If you bring your fine-tuned eye, your conceptual brain and your desire to learn, we'll offer a world-class team to bounce off, the tools needed to do your thing and the support to help you flourish.
YOU MIGHT BE THE ONE, IF...
You're a passionate creative who eats, breathes and dreams design. Communicating through imagery is your feast, exploring the mediums on which to deliver it is dessert. From advertising campaigns to in-store displays, illustration to typography, packaging to paper stocks, you believe in the power of a great idea and the impact design can have on the senses. You're a tastemaker (not literally, despite all the accidental food references), spotting cultural shifts and emerging trends before they hit the masses.
IF YOU WERE OUR MID-SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER, HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU WOULD DO:
Create a set of visual merchandising guidelines to help our global partners communicate the Bellroy brand in store in a cohesive and effective way
Conceptualise photographic approaches in response to a brief from our Creative Director, complete with project planning, location scouting, talent selection, art direction on the day and post production
Work with our interior design agency and sales teams to take the strength of Bellroy's digital experiences and apply them to a physical retail environment. From designing shop-in-shops to trade shows, POS kits to windows
Collaborate within the creative team to take campaigns from their initial strategy and briefing stage, through to their release across a variety of channels
Work with our Storyteller to create branded content for our various publishing networks. From our Journal to social channels, range guide to retail
Travelling to our Bells Beach office to work with our product design team on some new packaging that attracts customers in store, and at the same time gives a beautiful unboxing experience for online customers
THERE ARE SOME SKILLS AND STRENGTHS YOU MUST POSSESS...
4+ years of professional design experience
Degree in Visual Communication/Graphic Design or similar
Astute knowledge of the printing and production processes, and a keen desire to test physical prototypes
Ninja-level skills in Adobe - Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator

STUDIOJACK is on the hunt for a bomb designer who can not only dominate the digital/animation space but some print design too. Sound like a pretty specialised role? Yep! And we need a damn special person to fill it.
Here's our deal. We work with an impressive list of top-tier clients predominantly in the entertainment industry. Our campaigns feature a lot of digital and animation work, but print is also an important part of what we do. That's why we're after a hybrid digital-print designer who has dabbled in print, but really knows the digital space and can help us grow that side of the company.
It's not all about us though. This role offers the right candidate an opportunity to stretch and grow creatively. We're not looking for a developer - we're looking for a creative. No day is the same, so the right side of your brain will be lit up and challenged on the reg. If you've got the mind and the eye for this kind of design, you'll thrive in this position.
Working within a small team you will get your hands on the full spectrum of marketing and advertising collateral.
Now and then you'll need to leave your Mac screen and get face-to-face with our clients. We don't have account managers, and that's what our clients love about working with us - they can go straight to the source. Confidence in managing projects and dealing with clients on a daily basis is a deal breaker, so if this isn't your thing, STUDIOJACK isn't either.
Our ideal designer will have:
- Strong creative ideas and an ability to think logically
- Experience working in advertising or marketing
- Meticulous attention to detail
- Highly proficient knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite
- Ability to problem solve, manage projects and meet deadlines
- An extensive portfolio, preferably showing some digital work (if applicable)
- Level-headedness to work efficiently under pressure and remain calm during the busy times
- Ability to self-motivate - to work unsupervised and as part of a team
- Exceptional verbal and written communication skills
- An interest in the arts is a bonus!
- A love of knocking off work early on a Friday to have a drink and unwind after a productive week
- Permanent residency in Australia.
Salary is negotiable on experience and how much we love you - we value everyone who works with us and expect the cash to match the talent you bring to the team. So, can you bring it?
Stop everything and get in touch!
STUDIOJACK started 8 years ago with one guy sitting at a computer churning out artwork for some of the biggest musicals in the country. That one guy turned into a full service agency and a host of international team members tackling the areas we had no clue about. The formula worked, and now STUDIOJACK works with some of Australia's top-tier arts and entertainment brands. We're known for being reliable, quick, creative, inventive, exceptionally talented and really fun to work with, oh, and modest! We're very modest.
Our clients include Sydney Opera House; Arts Centre Melbourne; Sydney Theatre Company; TEG Live; Norman, Disney & Young; Mahjong Restaurant, and Westwaters Hotel & Entertainment Complex to name a few..
We're pumped about 2018. We've moved into our swanky new space in Prahran. We've expanded our client base to include retail, property and hospitality. And we've refined our small team to people who get along and are happy working together. There's just one thing missing - you.
Now, as much as we'd love to hear from you in person, please only reach out to us via The Loop or our email address listed. We're busy, so if you do make contact by other means, we'll know you haven't read this ad properly, and you've dropped your attention to detail game. If you have questions, please send them through with your folio to the email above.
Recruiters - we love you, but please don't contact us at this early stage.
Please note: Only successful applicants will be contacted so no need to call to see if we got your application.
