Graphic Designer (Packaging Specialist)
Graphic Designer (Packaging Design Specialist) Nutrabolics - Vancouver, BC Full-time, Permanent
You live for design and love the idea of bringing branding and packaging to life. You are beyond capable of executing last minute, high-pressure label content and technical changes with impeccable attention to detail. Your knowledge of consumer product packaging regulations and technical print specifications makes you a valuable resource to any consumer-driven brand. Your organization and proactive file management leaves your co-workers speechless. You also have a strong sense for conceptual graphic design and typography, with experience creating stunning product renders, social media graphics, marketing icons, and other brand assets.
As a team player working on a small in-house creative team, you understand that the design process is collaborative, so you welcome constructive feedback. You’re the type of designer that can completely start over from a blank canvas if it means the final product will be stronger. You are adept at taking initiative and creative liberties that can pay off big time. Mediocre work frustrates you and your own ambitions push you to constantly learn. You are ready and willing to help out on a variety of design projects or other tasks if needed. Your great sense of humour and approachable demeanour allow you to contribute as much to a team atmosphere as you do to a brand image.
