You would have a real variety of projects to work on, from retail graphic concepts/POS, brand identities and web sites, to direct mail, flyers and corporate brochures. This is a full-time role based in our light and spacious studio only 10 minutes walk from Piccadilly Station. The salary will be competitive.
