Midweight Graphic Designer
The Fix are working with a really artistic agency, they do very creative artistic bespoke installations for spaces.
My client are looking for a Middleweight designer to join them, and you must have wall graphics within your folio and have a passion for art and illustration.
Your Creative Process as their Middleweight designer:
They give their middleweight designers the freedom and space to play, there are client deliverables to meet
within their Creative Process but how you get to these is up to you.
As a middleweight designer, you will be contributing to the entire lifecycle of a project, from concept through to completion, working directly into a Lead Designer and working closely with the wider Design Team, Production Team and fabrication partners. This role requires a conceptual thinker that can conﬁdently articulate their ideas and bring them to life in a diverse range of spaces.
Previous experience in environmental graphic design is crucial and they’d love to see examples of these projects and your creative process in your portfolio.
Creative Process as their Middleweight designer:
Phase 1: Discover - Understanding the brief, the client and the space. Researching themes and narratives to inspire the designs.
Phase 2: Design - Creating concepts derived from the chosen theme for the space. They call these idea cards, they are loose, sketchy and conceptual. The chosen ideas are then reﬁned further.
Phase 3: Develop - Developing the chosen ideas, considering materiality and creating fully formed designs ready to be artworked, fabricated and installed.
Phase 4: Detail (Production Team) Phase 5: Deliver (PM Team)
