Hello, we are National Lighting

25 years ago we had the bright idea to start selling lamps. And, it turned out we were pretty good at it. In fact we’ve done so well we’re now one of the UK’s leading importers of lighting supplies.

Unfortunately, we’ve been so busy lighting up the nation that we’ve not had time to give our branding as much attention as we think it deserves. We feel it’s about time we put things right. So, we are currently on the look out for a talented Junior-Midweight Designer who would like to come on board and give us a (big) helping hand.

Reporting to our Creative Director we are looking for someone who will jump at the chance to get involved with a brand refresh. The ideal candidate will be someone who can confidently turn their hand to all areas of design whether that’s creating wireframes, in-store graphics, new logos or is brimming with thumb-stopping social ideas. We are really looking for an enthusiastic and multi-talented all-rounder with a can-do attitude. In return this role will give the right person a lot of creative freedom and the opportunity to be instrumental in defining the new look and feel of an established brand.

Must haves:

  • 1 year minimum design experience (internships count)
  • Degree in Graphic Design or equivalent qualification
  • An excellent working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite
  • A keen interest and some experience in video and motion graphics (After Effects) would be advantageous
  • Excellent typographic skills
  • Digital and print experience
  • Good all-rounder; willing to work across all creative jobs however big or small
  • Desire to take initiative on projects, be proactive and get things done
  • Some commercial awareness would be advantageous
  • Brilliant time management skills
  • Basic photo retouching
  • Ideas/moodboard creation
  • Can-do attitude
  • Organised with an ability to work to deadlines
  • Attention to detail is a must
  • Excellent typographic skills
  • Portfolio brimming with creative, typographic, social media, print and web examples
  • We may want to include vector or hand illustration as part of our brand refresh so if you can turn your hand to some simple illustration that would be a bonus

You:

  • A creative thinker with a big imagination – we ‘will’ want to hear your ideas!
  • Friendly, collaborative and open to ideas and feedback from others
  • Enthusiastic with a desire to push the brand forward across all touch points
  • Proactive attitude and desire to take ownership of projects
  • An interest in keeping up to date with digital and social trends
  • Positive can-do attitude
  • Self-starter
  • Ability to take an idea and turn it into a reality

If you fancy joining a friendly and inclusive creative team and think you have what it takes to give our brand the attention it deserves then we’d love to hear from you.
