During a recent visit to DaviesMoore’s website we noticed a couple of job openings:
The Production Designer creates and modifies print and digital ads for use in various media, ranging from print advertising to digital banners, mailers, brochures and other collateral. The PD prepares files for production confirming specifications, technical details and ensuring all quality standards are maintained. The PD role is approximately 75% production, 25% design. 100% attention to detail.
Requires expertise working with the Adobe Creative Suite and Adobe Creative Cloud-based software, specifically creating original design work in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator while adhering to brand guidelines and best practices. Also requires experience in creation of production and print-ready/mechanical files from design renderings or mockups. Must be fast, thorough and able to manage a high volume of projects with attention to detail for copy and layout to ensure consistency and best delivery for messages both visual and written.
The successful candidate for this role will be someone who is dynamic and innovative in their approach to web development. We are looking for someone who can collaborate, conceptualize, build and maintain websites for a variety of clients.
We take pride in developing a custom, responsive web experience tailored to the brand’s objectives while integrating into the overall marketing strategy seamlessly. We seek to provide our clients with engagement websites that don’t simply provide a brochure of products and services but start and continue a dialogue with its visitors.
This approach to web design and development requires someone who doesn’t just build a site to an XD file or to meet client requirements, but rather someone who thinks beyond what the client says they want and provides the best solution for what will really move the dial for their business. Knowing when it makes sense to add interactivity or unique functionality, having the confidence to build your vision and coach the client requires someone who is a self-starter and constantly stays on top of trends in web design. This person will always be educating themselves to create new ways of engagement via the web regardless of the device a person chooses to access it.
