Junior Graphic Designer

ABOUT MSGD

Located on the outskirts of Aylesbury and Leighton Buzzard, MSGD is a young, fast-paced creative agency that has seen steady growth since its founding. Our team consists of multidisciplinary designers and developers who work on a broad range of projects from small local businesses through to household names. Every day is different.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

  • An enthusiastic and creative Junior Graphic Designer to report directly to our Senior Designer and Creative Director.
  • You’ll be responsible for executing projects based on briefs set by the design team, so you’ll need to be a confident self-starter and capable of managing your workload.
  • You’ll know Adobe Creative Cloud applications inside out (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop) and have some knowledge of MS Office, all on macOS.
  • You’ll be a creative thinker and have an eye for detail. Accuracy is essential.
  • A willingness to learn new things and step outside your comfort zone.
  • You’ll be comfortable communicating with clients and able to articulate your ideas to your colleagues.
  • We don’t expect you to be an expert in all areas, but we do expect you to have a sound understanding of the fundamental principals of design.
  • Ideally, you’ll have a design related degree or qualification.

NICE TO HAVE’S

  • Any experience with After Effects, Premier Pro or Adobe XD will score you bonus points.
  • If you’ve held a design-related role that would be beneficial, especially within an agency, but it’s not essential. What’s important is your passion for design and your willingness to learn.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • Business is thriving. As we grow, you’ll be given more responsibility and the opportunity to get involved in other areas of the business.
  • We’re a small company and things sometimes get hectic. You’ll be expected to roll your sleeves up and help out where necessary. Everyone answers the phone. Everyone gets a round in. No egos here.

  • 3% pension
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Monthly team lunches
  • A birthday duvet day
  • The annual agency xmas do
  • Regular team nights out (and in). Bring your Mario Kart skills.
