Structural Designer (M/W and Senior)
The Fix are looking to speak with both Middleweight and Senior Structural Designers for one of our lovely home counties clients. The Structural Designer will be expected to work within the 3D team to help to deliver outstanding results and foster strong client relationships.
He/she should have a passion to inspire great design and ideas in a team environment as well as the ability to work independently and manage their own projects. He/she will find themselves working on everything from bottles to cartons to tubes to coffee machines to product delivery systems and back again!
This Structrual Designer role reports directly to our 3D Creative Director & Project Leaders.
Specific Responsibilities of the Structural Designer:
- Provide sound technical knowledge plus show willing to develop further in this area.
- Help with big brand projects from concept to completion, delivering our clients the ‘best’ creative, technically viable and commercially feasible solutions.
- Run smaller projects independently as and when appropriate.
- Generate and prepare sketch visuals of concepts for initial phase presentations.

Structural Designer must haves:
- Be mobile. Own car and driving license essential
- Be prepared to travel – full passport and willingness to undertake frequent international travel, occasionally involving overnight stays
- Have good drawing skills
- Be sociable and presentable. Our designers are client-facing and should feel confident and comfortable attending client briefings and presenting their own work.
