CanPrev, Cyto-Matrix & Orange Naturals - Scarborough, ON
1 year full-time contract starting September 2018.
CanPrev grew out of a desire to make natural medicine safe, effective and accessible to everyone. And for over ten years, we have focused on making the best possible products that informed patients and real natural practitioners can use.
We are looking for a Junior Graphic Designer to join our collaborative and fun team of marketers, writers, designers and creatives. This team is responsible for helping Canadians understand how their bodies work, and understand how natural remedies can help.
As a Junior Graphic Designer you will play an important part in shaping and expanding CanPrev's brand. You will work on projects of all sizes and across all channels while contributing to and maintaining CanPrev's graphic standards and brand identity. You will create high-quality creative designs for print and web including packaging, direct mail pieces, newsletters, brochures, electronic communications, advertisements. You'll work with prepress teams to bring your creations to fruition.
Your portfolio should contain high quality print, web and packaging designs, and should demonstrate a strong understanding of branding, typography, photography, layout, colour palette and modern design trends. You're a whiz with the latest versions Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat and Lightroom. It also helps if you know your way around a pre-press workflow, preparing files for print.
You're keen. You love to take ownership of your projects and love to drive them to completion. You're organized and your attention to detail never wavers; juggling several projects doesn't faze you in the least. You thrive in challenging and dynamic environments. You're dynamic too - with a hunger to learn new concepts and try new things.
Plus you think health and natural medicine is just plain cool.
If this is you, please send a cover letter, resume and a link to your portfolio.
