We have an absolutely fabulous opportunity for a senior Brand Designer at a global manufacturing and technology company based in Cape Town. The company is rebranding, rebuilding, and redesigning everything from the ground up – and they need someone to take charge of shaping their visuals and creating the aesthetic foundation for the entire business. As such, their lovely Marketing team is looking for a top-tier digital artist to execute beautiful visuals that catapult their world-class company into the stratosphere! The role includes the Brand Designer creating, managing, and maintaining all company visuals. The senior Graphic Designer will work closely with the Chief Marketing Officer on the vision and execution of beautiful product imagery, concept art, infographics, branding, webpages, and supporting material. You will also work alongside a senior copywriter to accompany graphics and visuals. As senior Brand Designer you will personally execute visual work, as well as coordinating the efforts of external resources such as photographers, illustrators, 3D artists and UX designers, print, and product designers. 
We’re looking for someone with the requisite through the line design, vector and graphic skills required to produce eye opening content. We’re talking beautiful product imagery, stunning illustration and concepts, tight brand design, and effortless flow of information, driven by a great eye for design, colour, and visual “x-factor.”
If you’re reading this, then chances are you’re a dynamic, creative, out-the-box-thinking graphic artist with an easy sense of humour, crazy literate Adobe skills, and a senior designer portfolio to prove it - we want to see it. If you are a visual jack-of-all-trades looking to sink your teeth into owning the aesthetics for a single company (with a single range of cutting-edge physical products), we’d love to hear from you.
Please note that this is an onsite role with flexibility attached (potentially the best of both worlds).
