Junior Artworker

Salary: £20000 - £22000 per annum

My client - a globally recognised design agency with beautiful offices based in North West London are looking for a Junior Artworker to start immediately!

The London office is currently home to around 25 staff. A supportive, sociable bunch who are constantly helping the business thrive and top up their impressive clientele across the global retail, and FMCG space.

You will mainly be responsible for preparing technically-correct packaging artwork ready for print for one of our blue-chip clients, a leading personal care brand. Fluency in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop are essential.

You must be very detail oriented, have excellent organisation skills and be able to keep calm under pressure. The role will suit someone who is comfortable working with checklists, processes and guidelines which are required due to the heavily regulated nature of this client's industry.

Responsibilities include;

  • Preparing print-ready, multi-language pack artwork including separations for cutter guides, spot colours and special finishes
  • Processing cutter guides ready for use by the Design Team
  • Liaising with clients and print suppliers in the UK and abroad
  • Ensuring artwork adheres to range and brand guidelines
  • Sharing knowledge within the Production and Design Team and constantly reviewing processes to make improvements throughout the workflow
  • Giving printers' 'contract proofs' the final checks and approval before they go to press
  • Creating 3D pack mock-ups in Photoshop
  • Running inkjet proofs using GMG ColorProof for colour standards and maintaining the large format Epson printer
  • Colour management for offset litho and occasionally flexo print processes
  • 'Cleaning' process colours for optimised reproduction
  • Occasionally preparing brochures and other marketing communications materials for print or online use

This is a great opportunity for someone with 1-2 years' experience wanting to develop their knowledge in the technical aspects of packaging artwork and who takes pride in producing high quality work.

Salary is paying up £22,000
