We are a Melbourne-based start-up focussed on educating creative business owners with digestible and affordable resources, empowering them to grow in confidence and reach their business and financial goals.
Because no one wants to be a struggling artist, and we believe that creative business can be exactly that, creative.
We love working collaboratively, experimenting, and getting sh*t done.
About the role
This is a project-based freelance role and would suit someone who's already established as a freelance graphic designer, a parent, or someone going back to study.
Ideally, you'll work in-house in our studio in Northcote, but we are open to working remotely for the right candidate.
Since this is a project-based freelance role you might find it necessary to work full-time or part-time for periods of time, all of which will be agreed upon in advance. Ideally, youd work during general studio hours, which are 9:30am - 5pm but again, this can be negotiable.
You will start next year in January 2020, date to be discussed.
$50,000k - $60,000k pro rata per annum depending on experience.
You'll be working under the Director, Jai and joining the creative and marketing team in producing high quality content across numerous digital and print projects throughout the year. With multiple projects coming up in 2020, we run a fast-paced and collaborative studio, and need someone that can "get on with things" and stick to deadlines.
The ideal candidate will have strong creative skills and a portfolio of work which demonstrates their passion for editorial and layout design. This candidate will have the ability to work autonomously with little to no supervision and be able to stick to our current branding guidelines. Producing high-quality and consistent content is a strong value that resonates throughout the team.
We're looking to fill this role before Christmas break for January 2020.
