Designer (Advertising)

Designers are responsible for many of the advertisements you see day-to-day – whether on the bus, in the newspaper or on your phone. Often found working in-house for brands represented by an agency, they will work with the client and agency creatives to refine a brand’s message and figure out the most effective way to communicate it visually. With a thorough knowledge of current trends, consumer habits and technical expertise, a designer creates eye-catching visuals that prompt and persuade audiences to engage with a product or brand. Quick and comfortable navigating design and image-editing software, they work to prepare artwork to a professional standard, from preparing posters for print to planning pixels for webpages.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
