Their service offering includes illustrations, multimedia and prototyping, as well as tailored business presentation design.

What You'll Do

You will initially focus on business presentation design and will gradually start using other visual communication solutions.

These solutions will depend on the particular need of the customer and your specific skillset. You will act as a thought partner with teams to help them conceptualize and select the best solution for their communication situation.

As the Junior Graphic Designer is the entry level design role in our organization, the key aspect for the first 6 to 8 months is learning the nuances of the role and being open to receiving continuous feedback. You will be part of a global team and will be expected to leverage the talent and expertise of your peers; asking for support is critical for both learning the trade and to ensure the best outcome for the customer.
